FACT: According to American Psychological Association, 3 million children witness violence in their home each year and,

“A child’s exposure to the father [or male authority
figure] abusing the mother is the strongest risk factor for
transmitting violent behavior from one generation to the next.” One  study
(PDF) found that children who witness domestic violence are at risk for
a slew of negative behaviors, including higher levels of aggression,
lack of conflict resolution skills and “increased tolerance for and use
of violence in adult relationships.”
