Violence has a strong effect on children. Children who are living with violence are often more worried than other children and may have many different reactions. Some respond by becoming easily afraid, sad, or introverted. Others respond by becoming more unruly and angry, and by acting out. Many children believe that the violence is their fault.
At Kvindehjemmet, you and your children will get the help you need to talk about why you are at a women’s shelter. If you move in without your children, you will get help to figure out how to be there for them even though they are not living with you.
