Kids Are Not Little Adults 11″ x 17″ POSTER
Exposure to violence can have serious, long-lasting consequences for children’s physical and mental health. Traumatic experiences early in life can even affect the developing brain. Of course, every child is unique and will react differently, but research demonstrates that children who are exposed to violence are at increased risk for a wide range of physical, emotional, and behavioral problems, including becoming victims or perpetrators of violence as teens or adults. The physical, psychological, and emotional fallout of exposure to violence is more severe for children who experience multiple types of crime, violence, or abuse.
