More than 3 million children witness domestic violence in their homes every year. Their families are chaotic and crazy. They may blame themselves for the abuse thinking if they had not done or said a particular thing, the abuse would not have occurred.
Children who live in homes where there is domestic violence also suffer abuse or neglect. They are starved for attention, affection and approval. One parent is struggling to survive and the other is so consumed with controlling everyone, that they are not present for their children. These children become physically, emotionally and psychologically abandoned.
Witnessing domestic violence is the single best predictor of juvenile delinquency and adult criminality.
Most domestic violence incidents are not reported. Let’s change that statistic today!
