The 1996 ABS Woman's Safety Survey found that of the women who experienced violence by a current partner, 61 per cent (211 600) reported that they had children in their care at some time during the relationship, and 38 per cent (132 400) said that these children had witnessed the violence.
•In "Economic Costs of Domestic Violence 2002", Child abuse is more likely to occur in families experiencing domestic violence. Children of victims are also at risk of continuing the violence with their own children and partners and at heightened risk of alcohol and drug abuse and delinquency in later life. Impacts can also extend to people not directly experiencing victimisation. Effects can flow on to other children not from families experiencing domestic violence, for example, the effects of bullying or aggression by children of victims.

The most certain thing in life is uncertainty.
And the best we can do is prepare our minds to be equipped with tools to deal with uncertainty.
This means we have to prepare our minds by practicing dealing with uncertainty and change over and over even when everything is stable in life. This is so that when a sudden change happens, it doesn’t shock us or drive us into paralysis.
Mental and emotional stages you may going through right now and as time passes, this will start to make sense to you: -
Denial When chaos first arises, we don’t want to believe that this is happening. We are in denial. This is too surreal. We don’t want to believe that the prediction someone forecasts is going to happen. It’s like your worst nightmare has come true. You continue living life as normal because you don’t want to believe that a massive change is coming.
