  • Issues with the reporting of domestic violence
    • Children do not fully understand what is domestic abuse or the vocabulary to tell authorities
    • Stereotypes
    • Women will have guilt and shame (1/4 get abused).
    • What domestic violence is – wide ranging no quantity to quantify when something is domestic violence or just a typical family dispute
    • It becomes the norm
    • Talking about it (1/6 men get abused) 
    • Hard to catch, not just a one time event
    • Fear of reporting due to potential family backlash
  • It becomes the norm
