Dear Nilufer, thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to assist you.

If you have concerns about a child being exposed to domestic violence and abuse it is essential that you report these to your local authority's children's social care team. You’ll be asked for your details, but you can choose not to share them. Call 999 if the child is at immediate risk or, if you believe a crime has been committed, call your local policing team on 101.

The adverse effects on a young child being exposed to such behaviour can be extensive and long lasting. What you describe is clearly a dangerous environment. Please do act if you have any such concerns.
