Behind the Closed Doors of Domestic Abuse and Children

By Special Request ~  My guests;  Jennifer North and her daughter Taylor North

Domestic violence can be physical, sexual, emotional, economic, or psychological actions or threats of actions that influence another person. This includes any behaviors that intimidate, manipulate, humiliate, isolate, frighten,terrorize, coerce, threaten, blame, hurt, injure, or wound someone.

Domestic violence is a global problem of enormous proportions.   Although men are sometimes victims, the vast majority are women.  Children are the forgotten victims of violence in the home.

Children who are exposed to violence in the home may have difficulty learning and limited social skills, exhibit violent, risky or delinquent behaviour, or suffer from depression or severe anxiety. Children in the earliest years of life are particularly vulnerable: studies show that domestic violence is more prevalent in homes with younger children than those with older children.4
