Boys Who Experience Violence May Suffer Later
Here is a study that proves, to me, the obvious. Yet, I do feel that it is important to "prove" the obvious sometimes. Researchers have found that boys who experience violence are more likely to grow up and suffer from depression and PTSD. They also were able to prove that these men don't grow up and have a higher number of sexual partners or more legal problems. The question that interests me which they weren't able to focus on - are these boys more likely to grow up to be domestic violence perpetrators - they couldn't ask about because they would have to report any acknowledgement of abuse.
