Sometimes people need to leave - but do you?Arguments at home can make you feel like you just have to get away. If things are very bad or you are experiencing abuse then we would advise you to take action. If you are unsure about whether to leave in a hurry or to stay and try to work things out then there are people you can speak to who will help you to make an informed choice.
