So do children who witness domestic violence become aggressive themselves?

​So do children who witness domestic violence become aggressive themselves?

Yes, this symptom is the most consistently mentioned one that parents inform us about. There are different ways to understand this symptom. For very young children, they may not yet have words to express the powerful feelings they have. When young children become aggressive, I see it as a response, a defense against their own feelings of extreme vulnerability. They desperately need to feel more powerful. Another way some people contemplate it is as imitating or reenacting what they’ve seen at home

.In older children and adolescents, aggression is a way they’ve learned to behave. Children who’ve seen violence in intimate relationships have learned that violence is a way to control another person.
