It's important to note that family violence can occur in various relationships, including those involving spouses or partners, parents and children, siblings, and other family members. Recognizing the signs of family violence and seeking help is crucial to ensuring the safety and well-being of those affected by it. If you or someone you know is experiencing family violence, consider contacting support organizations for assistance and resources.
