To abuse a spouse is to abuse your child. Multiple studies have been done on the harmful effect to children who witness domestic violence. The results are the same in each study; it changes the child for life. Children experience an array of mental health concerns ranging from anxiety disorders to post traumatic stress disorder. Further, witnessing abuse may lead children to develop physical, emotional or behavioral reactions. The physical response may manifest as body aches or bed wetting. A child’s emotional reaction could include fear, guilt, shame or sadness. A child’s behavior might change in terms of attention, a drop-in school grades and decreased attendance. In the long term, children lack the skills to develop healthy relationships as adults. Additionally, it has been shown that children raised in abusive homes consider violence to be the only way to resolve conflicts. Further, many believe that witnessing domestic violence is a predictor of juvenile delinquency.
