Little Eyes. Little Ears

Violence Against a Mother Shapes Children as They Grow

Little Eyes, Little Ears

This Resource draws together, in one place, information from the best and latest research for professionals and colunteers who help women and children.  Topics addressed include what children might feel, think and do during wiolent incidents against their mothers, roles they might adopt before, during or after incidents, strategies of coping and survival, and how ciolence may be experienced by children of different ages, from infancy to adolescence. The purpose is to examine how violence against a mother can shape a child.  By learning how each child as an individual was shaped by experiences in his or her home - and considering important contextual features of family life - we can devise ways to help.
