This was the saddest-to-research article I’ve had to write so far. Let me show you why:
A five city study on violent attacks against women revealed that children were present at three out of four of the households when the police arrived. The majority of the women were low-income and single. How is a child supposed to take in abuse like this without being affected by it? Witnessing violence can be as upsetting as actually being hit. Worse, it teaches children that violence is normal from an early age … an answer to a question, a response to the sense that they are losing control over a situation. Thus begins the spiral of depression, hypertension, anxiety, fear and inhibition, aggressive outbursts and antisocial behavior. Violence becomes accepted and common. It becomes normal.
But it only gets worse. Click here to read, I hope you do.
