          The Risks to Boys Who Grow Up with Abuse

          October 01, 2013

          Are you in an abusive relationship and worry about the effect it will have on your children? You should. If you have a son, know that what he is experiencing as a witness to domestic violence will impact him for the rest of his life.

          According to the Oklahoma Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault, boys who grow up with abuse are:

          • Four times more likely to abuse in a dating relationship
          • Twenty-five times more likely to commit rape as an adult
          • Six times more likely to commit suicide 
          • One thousand times more likely to commit violent acts against their own children.

          If you need help leaving an abusive relationship, call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at
          (800) 799-SAFE (7233).
