Domestic Violence May Cause Fear, Anxiety Among Kids

HealthDay (4/12, Preidt) reported that according to a study published April 7 in the journal Psychology of Violence, “domestic violence witnessed by American children often goes unreported or unpunished, but causes fear and anxiety among the youngsters.” The study “included 517 children, of whom 75 percent witnessed domestic violence.” Investigators found that “children came to physical harm in one in 75 incidents, but suffered fear and anxiety in many more cases.”
