‘My kids were scared and upset’

I was in the supermarket and observed some really abusive behaviour, threats and suchlike. I felt uncomfortable along with everyone else who was watching but nobody did anything and I didn't know what to do. Is It ok to get involved and how would you approach this situation? My kids were scared and upset.

I can't go on anymore pretending

For years I have carried anger and unrest within myself that I don't understand, nor do I know what it is or how to get rid of it.

How can I help stop the violence?

I would like your advice please on how to assist my brother in law and father, to stop the violence and ease back on the drugs in my sister's home.
