Control and Abuse: The Three Little Pigs

Three Little Pigs: This illustration can be found at and originally came from: Brooke, Leslie, illustrator. The Golden Goose Book. London: Frederick Warne, 1905.

From The Three Little Pigs by Joseph Jacobs

"Little pig, little pig, let me come in." To which the pig answered:

"No, no, by the hair of my chinny chin chin." The wolf then answered to that:

"Then I'll huff and I'll puff, and I'll blow your house in."

The Cycle of Abuse


"The goal of an abuser is control. They want you to behave only in the ways in which they want you to behave. They achieve this control with abuse.

The cycle of abuse is a huge part of your answer to How did this happen to me? For years, you have very likely been feeling that you have been going around in circles... not getting anywhere. Your feelings are correct."


Physical, emotional or verbal abuse can escalate into a life-threatening situation. Know the risks.
