Impact on Children
If you have children living in your home they may be affected by
the abuse you are experiencing.
“Children who are exposed to violence against their mothers—even
infants and very young children—may be seriously affected. Exposure
to violence against their mothers can undermine children’s emotional
development, and cause serious behaviour problems and difficulties
in school. The emotional and behavioural effects may be similar to
those experienced by children who are themselves being physically
abused. (Source: Public Health Agency of Canada)
You can make the decision to protect your children and yourself
from the affects of violence. Your children do not have the power to
make the change, you do.
