How Domestic Violence Affects The Children

Bookmark and Share
Children from a domestic violence situation are the ones being hurt the most. Children are not at fault just because they were born into this world. However, some parents resent the children or just do not care about them enough to keep violence out of the picture. Children living in a home with domestic violence are affected in different ways. They can have things withheld from them, kicked out on the streets with no processions, beat, yelled at constantly or even abused in unspeakable ways.

Domestic violence that is occurring in the home needs to be stopped before children become pawns in the abuse. Fighting in front of the children or in a home where children can hear the fighting or see the abuse is something they remember for years to come. Victims of domestic abuse live with the fear that some day it may happen again and sometimes they distance themselves from new relationships for self-preservation. Is this how you want children to be raised?

If you have children and live in a home filled with hate and fighting, it may be time to get out and run. Being alone can be hard, but instilling fear in your children is the worst fear in the world. How can children grow up to be loving and caring, when they see the violence around them? Parents are supposed to protect children and teach them the right values about life and living. Teaching children to fear is not going to help them survive in the world, it is going to make them something more. They could grow up to be abusers themselves. Do you wish that on your children's future spouses or children?

If a domestic abuse situation is what you live in, you need help. There are organizations that will help parents of domestic violence find a place to live, a job if needed and food. Legal aid is one option to start proceedings to distance yourself from a partner that continues to abuse you or the children. It is just a matter of time before abusive relationships take something that can never be given back, your life.

I have four books that every parent should read.
