Q & A – How to protect yourself physically from estranged adult children

If you are concerned about protecting yourself physically from an estranged adult child, it is important to take steps to ensure your safety. Here are some strategies that may help:

  1. Secure your home: Ensure that your home is secure by installing locks on all doors and windows, and consider adding a security system or surveillance cameras.
  2. Limit access: If your estranged adult child has access to your home, consider limiting or revoking that access. You may want to change your locks or consider a restraining order if necessary.
  3. Notify authorities: If you feel threatened or in danger, notify the police or other authorities. They can provide assistance and help protect you from harm.
  4. Have a safety plan: Create a safety plan that outlines what to do in case of an emergency. This may include having a safe place to go, having a phone nearby to call for help, and notifying someone you trust if you feel unsafe.
  5. Seek legal advice: Consider consulting with a lawyer to determine what legal options are available to protect yourself. This may include obtaining a restraining order or filing a police report.

It is important to take any threats or concerns seriously and prioritize your safety. If you feel threatened or unsafe, do not hesitate to seek help from a trusted friend, family member, or professional.
