If you’re fans of Dr. Phil MCGraw, you guys should know that he just uploaded a very important video. IF you know someone in an abusive situation, McGraw states, and you can’t get them on the phone, do a welfare check on them. The police who do the check will likely take the children and women to a children/women’s domestic abuse shelter. While shelters aren’t ideal during this pandemic, it is very important that we not give abusers the upper hand. McGraw says that stay at home orders can become “heaven” as it is called for a potential or current abuser. Make sure you have the person’s known address and know where they live as well, and call the local sheriff’s department. We all have to stay at home in a bunch of places, but for abusers, this shouldn’t mean they can isolate and cut you off from friends and family. Thanks for reading, and stay safe everybody.
