Effects of Domestic Violence on Children

Via the Florida Children’s Campaign weekly Newsletter, linking to an article that originally appeared in the Florida Times-Union, the full version of which can be found here. Thanks!

Children who witness violent and abusive behavior in their homes are the most likely individuals to become perpetrators of domestic violence in the future. Men who are exposed to domestic violence in childhood are twice as likely to abuse their own partner and children, while women experiencing abuse in childhood are more likely to become victims of domestic violence in the future.
