The following excerpt is from R. v. Ghaddar, 2018 ONCJ 959 (CanLII):

[27] There are also a number of cases where conditional or absolute discharges have been given in the domestic sphere. In R v. Barilko, 2014 ONSC 1145, the accused was found guilty after trial of assaulting his ex-partner in the presence of their young son. The couple had been separated, and the complainant arrived by car at the accused’s house to pick up their son following the son’s visit with his father. The complainant arrived at the home early, honked her horn, then told the accused when he brought their son home that contrary to his expectations, their son would not be spending Christmas overnight at the accused’s house.
