Part 4: The Cycle of Domestic Violence (Opinion Piece)

Domestic violence affects many friends and families (whether extended family members or members of the nuclear family unit). In recent years awareness and discussions of this topic have elevated it to a broader community shedding light onto a very dark corner of our existence in the United States.

As many of you know, we are passionate about paying it forward and support two organizations that provide for those facing domestic violence and homelessness (many cases a result of escaping domestic violence). 

Children of families where domestic violence has occurred, are the next potential victims in a never-ending cycle of abuse that can be passed down from generation to generation. 

Because it happens so frequently, the children may feel that this is how life is, and how the family unit is supposed to operate. As a result, the children may imitate the same behaviors they have seen their parents’ model through the early stages of their lives because they have not been shown any different.

Awareness and discussion can help to stop the cycle of domestic violence.
