Violence in the home affects all family members. Children are affected when they see their parents being yelled at, pushed, or hit. A third of all children who see their mothers beaten develop emotional problems. Boys who see their fathers beat their mothers are ten times more likely to be abusive in their adult intimate relationships.
Domestic violence does not discriminate against gender, race, socio‑economic status, marital status, or age.
