INTIMATE PARTNER VIOLENCE
How Does Intimate Partner Violence Contribute to Delinquency of Children?
Intimate Partner Violence is a repeated abuse of one partner by the other. The
abuse may be financial, physical, emotional, sexual, or psychological (Huang et al.,
2015). In most cases in America, women are the victims of this abuse. However,
beyond the partners, children are the greatest victims. Intimate partner violence is
detrimental to children. In such cases, parents try as much as possible to keep their
children out of their violent incidents. However, children will always hear the fights
whenever they happen. They occasionally witness them. Intimate partner violence is
traumatic and will therefore have adverse psychosocial impacts on children. The
events hamper the child’s social development. As a result, they start exhibiting some
anti-social behaviors such as withdrawal. Exposure to intimate partner violence also
hampers emotional development in children (Huang et al., 2015). In this regard, a
child will experience numerous emotional problems. This leads the child to low
academic performance. Subsequently, the poor performance pushes the child to drop
out of school. In addition, children develop aggressive behaviors. This leads them to
commit violent crimes. Although many parents shield their children from exposure to
intimate partner violence, some parents underestimate the effect that the exposure can
have on children. My study will focus on how intimate violence affects children’s
emotional and psychological development witnessing this form of violence. Children
develop abnormal emotions to cope with the trauma that the tragic experiences
impose on them. Sadly, they grow with these emotions up to their adulthood.
Emotions are some of the risk factors of crime. In my study, I will use the attachment
and self-learning theory to explain how raising children in a toxic environment

where they witnessed intimate partner violence.
