Situation

Those experiencing Domestic Abuse often feel isolated, excluded, suffer low self esteem and lack confidence. Children are often traumatized by the abuse they have witnessed. They often under achieve at school and fail to reach their true potential. Evidence shows that many children from abusive relationships do not recognize healthy relationships and the cycle of abuse continues. Children often blame themselves for the abuse and feel they should have done more to protect the abused parent
