Domestic violence is spousal/partner relationship violence between adults. Family violence is not ok, it creates a fearful environment for every member of the family. If there are children in the home where domestic violence is occurring, even if the children are not being battered, they are being exposed to violence and are suffering from emotional abuse, which is reportable child abuse.
As difficult as it is to listen to this tape, think about these children. This is reality for these children. This is reportable child abuse. If you are aware of children or adolescents who are living in a domestic violent home, please call your local (C.P.S.) Child Protective Services hotline and request they investigate. If anyone you know is in imminent danger from domestic violence, call 911 immediately.
