Domestic violence harms children. Witnessing domestic violence traumatizes children and can teach them that violence is a normal way of life. Many abusers are also abusive to the children in the home.
Help and support is available to children in our community. Support groups are available to children who have witnessed domestic violence. Please call Help Line for more information and to connect a child to support. – What is best information here?
