How does domestic violence affect a child’s behavior at school?

How does domestic violence affect a child’s behavior at school?

A child may react similarly from his experience at home to the rest of the world. If the world is like home, he assumes, than it too must be scary, dangerous, and unpredictable. When a kid comes to see the world as a dangerous place, he or she is more likely to pick up situations as dangerous. He interprets any disagreement to end in physical violence. To defend himself, he may become aggressive. For example, a six-year-old boy who had seen his father physically abuse his mother was standing in line at the water fountain at school. Someone behind him accidentally bumped into him. He reacted as if he had been assaulted and retaliated by shoving the other kid back. This kind of behavior can get a kid into trouble when he feels as if he’s just defending himself.
