VIOLENCE BREEDS VIOLENCE

Multiple studies have shown that children who are raised in abusive homes learn that violence is an effective way to resolve conflicts and problems. They may adapt or practice the violence they witnessed as children in their teen and adult relationships and parenting experiences.

Whether or not children are abused, this is true even in case of witnessing the violence. 

Boys who witness their mothers’ abuse are more likely to batter their female partners as adults than boys raised in nonviolent homes. For girls, adolescence may result in the belief that threats and violence are the norm in relationships.

Children from violent homes have higher risks of alcohol/drug abuse, post traumatic stress disorder, and juvenile delinquency. Witnessing domestic violence is the single best predictor of juvenile delinquency and adult criminality. It is also the number one reason children run away.
