  • Injuries that can't be explained.
  • Jewelry, electronics, clothes or books that are destroyed or lost.
  • Sudden changes in eating habits, such as coming home hungry from school.
  • Complaining of illness or aches and pains, or faking illness.
  • Nightmares or difficulty sleeping.
  • Avoiding school or social situations, losing interest in school, losing friends or having declining grades.
  • Feeling helpless or suddenly having low self esteem.
  • Exhibiting self-destructive behaviors, such as running away from home, talking about suicide or causing self harm.
