History: You live with your mom, dad and 2 siblings, Meggie and Joe. Your dad gets mad really fast and you try to not make a lot of noise when he is home. He has threatened you not to talk about what happened and your mom told you she was going to “take care of it”. Even though you are afraid to talk, if your worker does a good job with rapport, you will tell them:  Your dad smokes cigarettes “a lot”. Some of them are from a package and some are the kind he makes.  He also has a room downstairs (the basement you think) that you are not allowed to go in. He goes down there a few times a week by himself.  You and your sister were arguing over a book and your dad came in the room. He was very mad at you and punched you in the eye.  He did not give you any warning, just punched you. You felt his knuckle hit your cheekbone.

      You cried really loud at first, but he told you to shut up and go to your room. You think he hit you because you were fighting with Meggie, but you did not hit her or anything. Mom told your uncle what happened and he is letting you stay the night with him right now. Mom told you to tell your friends and teachers that Meggie hit you in the face with a truck. But that is a lie…you are afraid you will get in trouble if you tell a lie. You are afraid of what will happen now that you have told.
