Does Seeing Domestic Violence Affect My Children?

Researchers agree that being exposed to domestic abuse and domestic violence will have a negative impact on your children. Studies have shown that children who grow up with domestic abuse in the home will be more likely to suffer from behavioral problems, emotional problems, depression, and poor grades. They are less likely to graduate from high school, more likely to get into trouble with the law, and more likely to enter into an unhealthy romantic relationship when they grow up. In addition, researchers have found that about half of the abusers who harm their spouses also harm their children.
