  • growing up in a violent home may be a terrifying and traumatic experience that can affect every aspect of a child’s life, growth and development. .
  • children who have been exposed to family violence suffer symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder, such as bed-wetting or nightmares,
  • and were at greater risk than their peers of having allergies, asthma, gastrointestinal problems, headaches and flu.”

Stalkers victimize approximately 5.2 million women and 1.4 million men each year in the U.S, with domestic violence-related stalking and often the most dangerous.

In addition, women who experience physical abuse as children are at a greater risk of victimization as adults, and men have a far greater (more than double) likelihood of perpetrating abuse.
