Domestic violence: A mother’s story about her son’s anger and breaking the cycle of abuse

We still see anger from him, but it is nowhere near as destructive and much less intense. He is learning to control that.

‘Jack’ – a twelve year old child of domestic violence – had begun to express ANGER as a result of Childhood Domestic Violence (CDV), which is common among those who grow up with CDV. But through counseling and hard work, he is beginning to UNLEARN this LIE – one of the 10 key LIES that CDV teaches – and learning to quell and redirect his anger in positive ways. “Instead of smashing up the house … he chops wood or goes and rides his bike.” At only 12, Jack is already discovered the TRUTH that can set him free.
