Child to Parent Violence

Parents struggling with their children's violence are often confused and isolated. It can be hard to find ways to keep everyone safe including the child whose behaviour is posing the risk to positive family relationships and safety. It can be difficult to know how to make things better.
You are not alone!

  • 77% of all parent victims were female
  • 87% of all perpetrators were male
  • 66% of cases involved son to mother (APV key findings for Youth Justice Service, September 2013)
  • Child violence is not just against parents. Many children are also violent to their siblings.
  • Child violence exists across all sections of society irrespective of gender, race, culture, nationality, religion, sexuality, disability, age, class, or educational level.

Violence is not the same as anger. Anger is an emotion and we can help children find safe outlets for that; violence is a sign that things are more serious and can lead to parents feeling controlled by their children. Child violence is any behaviour used by a child in the family which results in a parent – or sibling – feeling controlled, threatened or coerced.

You can find information from Cheshire East in these leaflets: Child to Adult and Adolescent to Adult violence.
