In part the article says “Even if children don’t see domestic violence, they almost always know it’s happened. And sometimes that’s just as bad as witnessing it first-hand, Caroline Collins, Child Welfare Scholars coordinator with Northwest Nazarene University, said.
“The myth or magic of what goes on behind closed doors is sometimes more scary when mom is crying” and the children don’t know why, Collins said.
Domestic violence in the home impacts almost every aspect of a child’s routine.
“If they’re constantly in that fight or flight and crisis mode, they’re not concentrating at school,” Collins said.
In addition, male children tend to act out and maybe even bully, while female children shut down and suffer from low self-esteem.
