Controlling and Abusive Behaviours

What Do You Think?

Emma's dad has been dating a woman named Charlotte for the past year. Charlotte was really nice to Emma when she first started dating her dad, but things have recently changed. Emma forgot to take out the rubbish on Saturday before football practice. When she came home, Charlotte had thrown the rubbish all over her bedroom. When Emma asked her why she did this, Charlotte started calling her names and threatened to tell Emma's dad that Emma had made the mess.
