Previous studies have relied almost exclusively on self-report questionnaires to assess appraisals; consequently we know little about perceptions that occur naturally when children witness interparental aggression. This study employed a semi-structured interview to assess the thoughts and feelings of 34 children ages 7—12 whose mothers were receiving services at domestic violence agencies, and mothers reported on interparental aggression that took place in the home. Sadness and anger were more common than anxiety, and children often attempted to stop or withdraw from fights or both. These findings support the idea that children actively attempt to understand the causes and consequences of interparental violence and suggest that their perceptions and interpretations are important for understanding the development of beliefs regarding the use of violence in close relationships.

Domestic and family violence tears lives apart. One in 3 women experience physical or sexual violence, or both, caused by someone known to them. It affects women, children, the family and the community. And it has big personal, social and economic effects. Children and young people don't have to see the violence to be affected by it.

Some tragedies are unintentional and unpredictable, such as traffic accidents or natural disasters. Others are intentional and sometimes premeditated, such as fights, muggings, shootings, murders, and terrorist attacks. When children are exposed to a traumatic event, including a violent crime, their response may vary. Some children become fearful. They may prefer to stay at home, and they may have trouble sleeping and concentrating in school. Appetites often change, and children may complain of headaches, stomachaches, and other vague symptoms.
Recently, it seems as if some members in our communities have lost their sense of reason. As the riots, which started in London, spread to other cities in the UK, the general public seemed to get the impression that the random and uncontrolled violence was due to something in the air, when the causes of violence may have been due to other factors such as boredom and poverty. Intentionally causing harm to other individuals or property is a serious problem today. For example, the recent video of the Malaysian man whose jaw was broken and then robbed when someone was trying to help him comes to mind. These recent violent events give rise to the question, just what are the causes of violence and what should be done when you are faced with violence? The most common motivations for violence can be viewed as inappropriate attempts to handle emotions.
Violence , an act of physical force that causes or is intended to cause harm. The damage inflicted by violence may be physical, psychological, or both.

Глаза немца сузились. - Ein Ring, - сказал Беккер. - Du hast einen Ring.
Название показалось ему чересчур земным для такого агрессора. - Червь, - недовольно сказал Джабба. - Никакой усложненной структуры, один лишь инстинкт: жри, опорожняйся и ползи. Вот что это. Простота.
Не обращайте на него внимания, - засмеялась. - Он просто расстроен.
Если даже он выберется на улицу, у него нет оружия. Как он заставит Сьюзан пройти вместе с ним к автомобильной стоянке. Как он поведет машину, если они все же доберутся до. И тут в его памяти зазвучал голос одного из преподавателей Корпуса морской пехоты, подсказавший ему, что делать. Применив силу, говорил этот голос, ты столкнешься с сопротивлением. Но заставь противника думать так, как выгодно тебе, и у тебя вместо врага появится союзник.
