Children who are exposed to domestic violence are more likely to suffer from physical injuries, mental health problems, and developmental delays.
They may also be more likely to struggle in school and have difficulty forming healthy relationships.
It is important for parents and caregivers to be aware of the link between child abuse and domestic violence, and to seek help if they are experiencing or witnessing abuse in their home.
