It happens at home …
An estimated 1.3 million women are victims of physical assault by an intimate partner each year. Witnessing violence between one’s parents or caretakers is the strongest risk factor of transmitting violent behavior from one generation to the next.
Boys who witness domestic violence are twice as likely to abuse their own partners and children when they become adults.
It happens at school …
The facts are alarming!
Violence at home and at school hurts children. It hurts families.
What can we do?
It starts with you!
Talk about it in your community. Talk about it in your schools. Talk about it in your family. If you have a healthy family that is free from violence and neglect, look around you and see who doesn’t have a violent and neglect free family.
Reach out to help them.
Whether it’s emotional support a woman needs to leave her abusive husband so that she and her children are safe … or children whose parents need parenting education and anger management courses … or schools that need to step up and act responsibly to keep students safe from bullying and violence … It’s time to BREAK THE CYCLE.
Help those in your community to break the cycle against violence by:
It takes all of us to keep families safe, to send our children to violence-free schools and to ensure that every child grows up to be a healthy, happy adult who does NOT continue the cycle.
Love Our Children USA works aggressively to keep America's children safe and to ensure that children grow up to be happy healthy adults who will continue the cycle of love and nurturing.
