How to Tell If You Are Being Abused 

Does the person you love . . . 

  • Threaten to hurt you or your children? 
  • Call you names or accuse you of having affairs?
  • Throw you down, push, hit, choke, kick or slap you?
  • Say it is your fault if he or she hits you, and then promises it won’t happen again?
  • Demean you in public or keep you from contacting family or friends?
  • Lose temper and destroy property?
  • Force you to have sex when you don’t want to?

Just one “yes” answer means you’re involved in an abusive relationship. If so, you’re not alone and you have choices. The City of Irvine FOR Families program is here to help. Call 949-724-6650.
