Violence

Violence In The Home, School And Community

Without help, the fear, intensity, and emotional stress caused by violence in homes, schools and communities can lower intelligence, self-esteem, self-confidence, and can make academic achievement extremely difficult. Violence can create long lasting psychical and emotional pain, which if left unhealed can make success in adult life extremely difficult. Exposure to violence in home, school and/or community can force children & youth to become violent themselves. Joining gangs often happens as a self-defensive act.

Children & youth can become violent as a defense against feeling hopeless, powerless and/or inferior. Violence can often be a release for pent-up depression, anger and frustration. Alcohol and drugs only make the situation worse by diminishing thinking and communication skills, increasing blood pressure and impulsivity, decreasing compassion and decreasing intelligence. Without help, violence can become a habit that can last into adulthood.

Violence can have its roots in, and be complicated by a combination of factors including: lack of communication skills; parental communication skill levels; despair; frustration; hopelessness; poverty; parental addiction; overcrowding; lack of opportunity/successful future; comparison with more fortunate children & youth; exposure to ugliness; exposure to violence at a young age; physical and emotional discomfort from unhealed accidents, traumas, beatings and abuses of all kinds; exhaustion; nutrition imbalances; exposure to environmental pollutants.
