According to the National Survey of Children’s Exposure to Violence (NatSCEV), 60 percent of American children are exposed to violence, crime or abuse in their homes, schools and communities. Be it bullying, domestic violence, or child abuse, exposure to violence - particularly multiple exposures - can interfere with a child’s physical, emotional, and intellectual development.
