You have a very good understanding of what witnessing violence can do to a child. Two things I'll add for the benefit of my other visitors: One, when a child witnesses another being abused, they feel powerless to do anything to stop it. That powerlessness leads to a tremendous amount of guilt at not being able to stop it, which for some leaves emotional scars that are often deeper than having been physically abused themselves. Two, witnessing violence doesn't have to only be with the eyes; witnessing can also be hearing or just know the abuse is taking place. Read more about Witnessing Family Violence. Thank you, BMW Princess, for sharing your thoughts on this issue with my visitors and me. Sending you love, light and healing energy.
