Parties with their friends change too, with the introduction of alcohol and drugs, things can get pretty scary for us parents - and our teens too. Tell them that if things get out of control, you can always pick them up. Talk about the possibility of the person driving them home being drunk, violence and drugs at the party, and of your teenager feeling threatened or frightened.

Children are vulnerable and trusting - dont leave them with just anyone. Make sure they are being looked after or looked out for by someone capable and trustworthy. If you have doubts about a neighbour or even a family member, dont use those people as babysitters. Babysitter guidelines for parents: https://pmgt.org.nz/child-safety/#Babysitter-guidelines

I agree. Any death is so sad but I have personally witnessed some terrible behaviour by women and watched as people stood by. I said at the time of if a man had done the same thing, there would have been an outcry or a call to the Police. We need to all look after each other regardless of gender.

Exactly. Violence against another, regardless of who they are, is not okay. People, especially men, need to be allowed to express emotions in a healthy manner - both tears and sweat release toxins so vital to be released, AND they need to be able to speak up about domestic violence and sexual abuse. Hurt people hurt people 😔🙏

How many woman killed every year? One death is one to many, people do not own another person, be blessed that some one wants to share their life with you, appreciation and gratitude is a couple of the main manners that dies in a relationship, and expectation of doing things is taken for granted and expected done. Does not make for a happy life.

This would no way include the amount who took their own lives due to dv and fv.

It saddens me with all the men that come in and have a chat due to abuse of all sorts, things that public will never hear and statistics will never have. Even if a male takes his own life due to mental and emotional and verbal abuse is high

Will we ever change our ways.

I can think of a man worth killing 😐

More money needed on types of mental abuse men and women use on the other before violence is escalated. Can't make people honest though can you.

And every bit as brutal

To true. Sad

That is 10 too many 😞

Totally agree

True and so sad.Wish more funds could be available for mental health.

even one is one to many

About bloody time!

Brodie Willis, William Willis

for real.

Its more to do with the society we live in that is largely controlled by males many of who are intensely insensitive to women's needs thereby affecting children. I can name numerous cases of neglect whereby women are seriously debased by this society.

Emotional abuse of men by woman is another aspect, often but not always involving access to children when a relationship has ended 😢

And who were they killed by? And why?

It's good to see men's groups getting started to deal with issues that men have. It's long overdue.

What are the statistics here? Are they killed by males or females? Would be interesting to know as, if we are distinguishing the sex of the victims then it would be insightful to know who is perpetrating these crimes. A lot of people may assume that male victims of family violence are likely to be killed by their partners and that the majority of men killed by partners are likely to be killed by women...simply because of prevailing stereotypical understandings about the nature of 'family violence'. Or are we talking about gay men killed by men, or boys and men killed by their fathers or sons, or boys or men killed by their parents' partners or other family members? Would be great if more men and boys had the encouragement and support to get assistance to escape family violence but it would also be helpful to understand the circumstances that result in these fatalities.

Is this woman killing them or what portion is other men? Can you clarify and compare to the number of woman dead from family violence.

It's sad that a woman can turn up at someone's house and say a whole spiel of racist abuse and verbal abuse to this man last night. nothing gets done. I'd be disappointed if anybody spoke to my boys like that when they are older. Why do woman never seem to get in trouble for the way they behave. Gotta give this guy credit he never yelled back.

my mother was very violent towards my father yet he never reliated

Of the women receiving help from Women’s Refuges, 90% of their children had witnessed the violence against them. Adults often hope that children don’t realise what’s occurring, “the children were asleep”, or “they were outside playing”, but studies show that children can often give detailed descriptions of abuse in the home. This leads to many children suffering heavy, long-term consequences that are severe enough to be regarded as clinical problems.

Hi Steve and Nick, you’re right, there should be more information out there about male victims of domestic violence. We’ve done multiple posts about physical, emotional, and sexual abuse against men. We have a section on our website dedicated to male victims of DV. When we post about a specific issue the tendency can be to think that we don’t care about related topics we are not covering in the same post. We absolutely do care about those topics and choose to focus on them individually. Here are links to some of those posts if you want to check them out: www.facebook.com/nzpmgt/photos/a.384207978288894/2548828715160132/?type=3&theater, www.facebook.com/nzpmgt/photos/a.384207978288894/2371682366208102/?type=3&theater, www.facebook.com/nzpmgt/photos/a.384207978288894/2644207378955598/?type=3&theater.

We support what New Zealand Police Managers' Guild Trust do in the education to everyone about Domestic Violence, Crime Prevention, Building a Safer Community and Child Safety, understanding and prevention is a hugh step forward.

Yes a life time off feeling confusion low self worth blaming themselfs isolating themselfs or getting with the wrong crowd thinking their tuff the list goes on living with violence is not how our kids should be raised

It has to stop NEW ZEALAND our children are suffering immeasurably due to family violence 😱 😭

Do not want to take away the meaning of this post, but i gets to me it always starts of women receiving help from womens refuge. Were do us guys go were is our refuge its not just women that get abused.

And nothing about domestic abuse against men? It's always women and a lot of them stirred shit up and provoke the guy plus emotional abuse and mental abuse. I don't tolerate violence towards women but I will never, ever tolerate violence towards men. Because of the stigma a lot of men do not report it to the police and bitches knows this. Quit being one sided. Get the whole story, don't believe the women until u get the other side of the story which more often than not women egg on and provoke men to retaliate knowing full well the police will be on their side. So, no, i will not be supporting this cause.

Ooh so remember the day...I taught my oldest to get out and take her brother to her room...WHY...because their father wouldn't stop discussing our issues in a civil manner....and when she came to see what was happening I had double to deal with...and off course she was 1st... So many unpredictabile outcomes..regardless of gender...

Sadly we as a community may help reduce the numbers of victims, but we as a society are pretty powerless and the reason for that is this kind of thing is a cycle, it's a vicious nasty cycle which has been passed on through generations and generations. "Smack the sense into them, make them listen with a fist" the problem is also economic and environmental which are also the basis for mental heath issues. Untreated mental health, more violent situations. The kids are caught up in this hurricane of horror and sadly some know no different. Because this is their tribe and this is what family life is all about. A lot of the time the victims don't even report the abuse. They are to scared, they forgive their abuser, they blame themselves and so the abuser gains more power. The kids of families like these become the innocent victims they see their dad yelling and swearing at mum, they may even see dad hitting mum..... That is a scary situation for an adut to be in imagine how horrifying it is for a child. Education, compulsory police report and court hearing, higher penalties and charges. Will it really stop this abuse from happening....???

Until the police, courts and governments acknowledge women are in excess of 55% perpetrators of violence and abuse toward our children, there will never be any change. The DV industry is only dealing with half the problem.

This is not how children should be living born into violence is not their fault they have the right to feel safe just like everyone

Such a mixture of feelings from the past when I read stuff like this...deep sadness, sorrow for my children and an even deeper anger at that low life piece of shit. Hope he rots in hell.

What about us Men who get assaulted and robbed by Woman Woman are just evil

We all grow old if we are lucky enough. Take care of the elderly always. They have earned it ♡

Popos got a brilliant memory Nanny. We'll be aight xo

No respect for any one including whanau.

Sad indictment of our society today

Shame on people who don't respect & love their elders.

It's a shame, what's happening. I was brought up to respect my elders.

Yes an government made no smacking our kids are taught from a young age not to problem solve but to resort to what their forced into by this throw away society schhool standing down primary kids whtf your broken kid so tough shit we dont care just dont want it to be our problem yet schools havefunding for these kids but its not avalible to all the kids that need it wake up Nz priminister you can change some thing but you got start at the root kids are being let down big time by adults the SYSTEM....

I don't understand the mentality of someone who thinks to violently attack an elderly person is a cool thing to do. To get to old age is a privilege not a promise and for some scum bag to come along and terrorize the life out of someone who couldn't be more defenseless sickens me to the core.

I share a house with my mum she is 82 i wld never do that shame on you Anyhoo shes fitter than me so i prob cldnt catch her lol

Such bullshit

I hope his parents are proud of their mongrel son. Grrrrrrrrr

Dreadful that children could do that to parents grandparents bad enough children women and animals get hurt
