My friend has recently just told me that everyone once in a while, her father gets extremely violent and smashes up plates and throws things across the room. I also suspect possible physical abuse although she hasn't said that to me. She, however, did tell me that he has calmed down now and he doesn't get so angry anymore. I'm the only person she's told and i was just wondering if anyone knew how i could help her besides simply just being there for her? What sort of things could i say that may make her feel slightly better? It can't be easy being scared of your own father.
