SCHOOL'S OUT FOR SUMMER!!!


The school holidays can be great, there’s no homework to complete for parents to check, July and August should bring blue skies and hot weather, plus there is the ability to sleep as late as you like. For both parents and children, the summer holidays can be heaven.

It’s no surprise that the police report the number of calls drop during the summer months. This must indicate that families are truly happy when they are together, right?

Sadly, for either a parent or child experiencing domestic abuse, factors such as extra time spent together can often make it difficult for people to seek help, or even escape. The increased time of being in an unstable household can lead to multiple feelings of fear and isolation, with a greater chance of experiencing violence and abuse.

For a parent, the added responsibility of keeping children entertained over the six weeks can add tremendous pressure, especially with a rise in temperature.
