There are different forms of violence. People often think of violence as physical violence or sexual violence. But other forms of violence also exist such as financial violence or emotional violence.

When using violence, people use words that hurt. When using violence, people use objects such as a knife or other items. Or people kick or hit. Violence can also be passive. Ignoring someone. Paying no attention to someone. Neglecting someone.
