If You Love Someone Who Grew Up With CDV
Give The Gift That Really Counts This Holiday!
From the time spent with family, to decorating the house and tree, singing carols, and giving gifts to the ones you love, the holiday season is truly a wonderful time of the year. With the festive and jovial spirit in the air, it is a magical time and a time to show the kindness and abundance in our hearts by gifting to and receiving gifts from the ones we care about most.
But shopping for the holidays can be overwhelming, stressful and time-consuming. Every year people scrounge for gift ideas, hoping to find for others what they will most want or need. We look for gifts that we think will bring happiness to our loved ones, improve their lives in noteworthy ways, or help bring them closer to their hopes and dreams. And those gifts – the ones that really matter – can be hard to find.
If someone you love grew up living with Childhood Domestic Violence (CDV) or other major adversity in their childhood home and for whom the holidays can still be tough, it may be even more difficult to find that perfect gift that keeps on giving.
Childhood Domestic Violence Wreaks Havoc on a Life.
When someone grows up living with domestic violence, they experience Childhood Domestic Violence (CDV) – violence between their parents or violence towards a parent, perhaps from a stepparent or significant other, which can be physical, non-physical, or both, and is NOT directed towards the child. Adversities faced in childhood are very different than those faced as an adult because childhood is the most helpless and vulnerable time in a person’s life; plus also, watching the 2 people you care about the most hurt one another without being able to do anything about it has an impact very different that adversities experienced outside the home. CDV is a major childhood adversity that has a profound and defining impact on a life and can rob those who grew up with it from the life, fulfillment, and happiness they deserve.
