Most of the families experiencing violence in the home also report child abuse. 77% of children in high violence families were abused over their lifetime. The effects last a lifetime.
Most children who witness domestic violence suffer from PTSD and go on to lead lives much like their parents taught them (unless they are lucky enough to have good daycare, crisis nursery access, and mentoring – fairly rare in America today).
