For example, psychological and emotional harm to children caused by witnessing a father’s violence toward a mother may be recorded as a child experiencing violence in the family.Harm to children may also be attributed to one parent even when caused by the other parent.This made up one in three reports for women and one in ten reports for men.

These attitudes in effect allow violence to continue to exist in the community.

They prevent many victims and witnesses from reporting violence in the family.

When we start to look at the relationship between perpetrator and victim, we can see clearly that the gender dynamics are even more important to consider.
