Children who are used to domestic violence might be violent in nature, depressed, lack concentration and sad.
A child who sees his or her parents throwing things and cursing at each other at home will never concentrate in school. And they will end up having bad grades in their class, which in turn won’t end well for such a child.
Unfortunately, a frustrated, angry father or mother will surely scold a child with bad grades in a very harsh way. There will be a transfer of aggression. Instead of encouraging the child to do better next time, they will start comparing their child to another Happy kid.
