More parents seeking protection from abusive children
Rise in number of parents going to court to seek protection from children who beat them, cheat them of their assets, or harass them for money
Abusive husbands. Abusive parents. And now a new figure of violence in the home is on the rise - abusive children.
More parents have gone to court in recent years to seek protection from their abusive offspring.
The abuse ranges from physical, to harassment for money, to cheating them of their assets.
Complaints from parents include being hounded by greedy children to sell their flats and hand over the proceeds, or to transfer ownership of their flats to them, a Subordinate Courts spokesman told The Sunday Times.
