    For those that don't know, October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

    Being a child, watching my mother get physically and emotionally abused on a regular basis, this is a subject that strikes very close to home. I will also be celebrating 6 years in November as a children's advocate at a local domestic violence shelter.

    And, since the key to violence prevention and victim empowerment is education, I thought I would share some links and information.

    National Coalition Against Domestic Violence
    The National Domestic Violence Hotline

    Feel free to add your own links and information to this thread.

    Bumping this, as it's an incredibly important topic, imo.

    Re-bumping...

    Sorry, haven't seen it earlier. I've experienced the same thing as you growing up and I've made a promise to myself to never be like that.
