      • Control what you do, who you see and/or talk to, and where you go?
      • Stop you from seeing your friends or family members?
      • Take your money or Social Security check, make you ask for money, or refuse to give you money?
      • Make all of the decisions?
      • Tell you that you’re a bad parent or threaten to take away or hurt your children?
      • Prevent you from working or attending school?
      • Act like the abuse is no big deal, it’s your fault, or even deny doing it?
      • Destroy your property or threaten to kill your pets?
      • Intimidate you with guns, knives, or other weapons?
      • Shove you, slap you, choke you, or hit you?
      • Force you to try and drop charges?
      • Threaten to commit suicide?
      • Threaten to kill you?
