How are the children impacted?

Violence is learned behaviour. More than half of all abusive men experienced or witnessed abuse in their childhood homes. As a result, the cycle of violence is passed from one generation to the next. Substantial numbers of the next cohort of abusive men are now young boys watching their mothers suffer. Children cannot flourish where abuse abounds. It affects how they perform at school, relate to friends, view family life, and feel about themselves. Abuse robs boys and girls of a happy childhood whether or not they are the ones directly suffering the blows or harshness.
