How Domestic Violence Affects Children

How Domestic Violence Affects Children | digital divide information | Scoop.it

"...Children who are raised in a violent household learn early on that no one can be trusted.  It can also destroy their courage to find that someone they love and should be able to trust.  These kids that are being exposed to violent acts in their own home live in fear and are  always on guard, waiting for something else terrible to happen.
 

Younger kids are particularly vulnerable in feeling anxious and fearful at all times. They have no understanding of what triggered the violent acts; therefore, they can never feel completely safe.  A constant state of worry encompasses their lives, as they grow to believe that their mother, siblings, and even themselves’ are always in danger of being hurt.
 

As they grow surrounded by domestic violence, these kids become more guarded and secretive in their outside world.  Shame takes over as they now live with the fear of teachers and friends both finding out what is happening in their home.  To most, they will appear to be perfectly normal, albeit shy kids, but, inside, their thoughts and feelings are in constant turmoil.
 

The need to blame will grip children who are living in the shadow of domestic violence.  Some will become protective of their mother and believe that the pain inflicted on her is somehow their fault, while others will direct anger at her for allowing the abuse to continue.  Rage, humiliation, guilt, and embarrassment are not uncommon emotions displayed by kids in abusive households...."
