Does Seeing Domestic Violence Affect Children’s Mental Health?
Ass doctor, doctor, I want to ask about ” domestic violence on children’s mentality”rnDoctor, is there any influence in domestic violence?
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Children learn from their environment. Children know language, know how to walk, respond, and how to make decisions, all from their environment. So it is clear, with the presence of domestic violence or bad habits and behavior at home, children will imitate it and will make it a standard in everyday life, such as how to treat their parents, treat friends and children in the future, treat their partners.
Because a child is born without any information, whether it is about ethics or politeness, it is impossible for him to show a good attitude if all he sees is bad. So if there is a problem in your home, you should avoid your child in seeing it. If there is something that needs to be resolved, you can entrust your child to your parents until the problem for you and your partner is resolved. If you need help, both for you and your child, you can consult and seek the opinion of a psychiatrist. I hope you and your family are always healthy.
That's all, hope it helps.
