The ‘terrorist’ in my home

Amanda Holt has brought another recent article to my attention.

‘The terrorist in my home’: teenagers’ violence towards parents – constructions of parent experiences in public online message boards, presents analysis of two particular online message boards used by parents. This is an important discussion at a time when parents are increasingly turning to this source of help, having been unsuccessful in attracting support via other means.

Further discussion can be found of this in my own article, Searching for help for Parent Abuse: The usefulness of the internet as a resource for parents, which first appeared in the Respect Newsletter, Autumn 2010.
