Risk Of Domestic Violence May Be Passed From Parents To Children.

HealthDay (11/2, Preidt) reported that, according to a study due for presentation at the annual meeting of the American Society of Criminology, “the risk of domestic violence often is passed from parents to their children.” After analyzing data on some 1,600 US families, researchers found that almost “four out of five families in which parents were involved with intimate-partner violence had adult children who committed violence against partners, and three-quarters of those families had adult children who became victims of domestic violence.”
