Studies suggest that 15 million children are exposed to violence in the home each year in the United States.
Domestic violence can have a devastating effect on a survivor parent, as well as children who witness the abuse. How do these children heal from the fear that something bad will happen again or the threats they have heard one parent shout at another? How does a survivor mother connect to her child who has withdrawn or her son or daughter who is acting out? How should children relate to the survivor parent, as well as the abuser parent?
