Domestic Violence is a cycle. Children learn from what they see. The way to stop the cycle is to help educate our young on how to look for signs and how to break the cycle. It is a painful topic to discuss and its repercussions last from generation to generation. Let’s stop it by learning and teaching about it.

Rebecca, thank you so much for viewing the video. I thought that statistic was high myself but that's the percentage that they say. I am not sure how they track it. I am not too crazy about statistics because I feel a lot of things in life go without being reported.

I have to totally disagree with the comment that 50% of abused become abusers. I have been abused almost my enitre life and I am fortysix years old. In fact as Iam the victim I know i never have or never could abuse another human being after what I have lived through.
