Domestic abuse between parents doesn't impact on children
Children are undoubtedly adversely affected by one parent being abusive to the other.
Children, as much as the adult victims, are experiencing coercive control – being manipulated, confused and harmed by it.
Abusers frequently undermine relationships between the child and the other parent as part of their strategy to gain domination in the household, and children suffer far-reaching negative impacts.
Seeing or hearing a parent being abused is a form of child abuse. See also Domestic Abuse and the Law.
