018: How Domestic Violence Affects Children W/ Vanessa


Going back to an older conversation about Domestic Violence with an anonymous guest we call Vanessa. Though we’re in our #pridemonth series, we had to add these conversations since it also falls in how we relate to people in the family.

Children really go through a lot when there is violence in the home but it’s not talked about. We focus on the woman and men in those relationships but overlook the effects the violence has on the children. Let’s listen to the full episode now.
