More than 3 million children witness acts of domestic violence every year in their homes.Children who live through and suffer from domestic violence in their homes can suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Additionally these young children are often ripped from their homes with nothing but the clothes on their back, leaving behind toys, pictures and all of their personal belongings. Positive socilalization, and art therapy have been know to help children of domestic violence cope with their trauma.
