As a human rights issue which affects more than 3 million children every year, it is shocking that domestic violence remains a secret. Here at Makers of Memories, we realize the power that one simple fact can have on people. Hearing that more than half of school age children in domestic violence shelters show clinical levels of anxiety or post-traumatic stress disorder can make you stop and think. So can hearing that 75% of boys who are present when their mothers are beaten were later identified as having demonstrable behavior problems.
These simple facts can make a huge difference in the fight against domestic violence. Simply mentioning facts makes domestic violence an acceptable topic of conversation and can make a difference in the life of a survivor.
