The Dynamics of Violence and Homelessness among Young Families
Swick, Kevin James
Early Childhood Education Journal, v36 n1 p81-85 Aug 2008
Violence is one of the most prevalent elements in the lives of homeless families with young children. This violence may come in various forms: domestic violence, street violence, violence in one's childhood, witnessing violence, and other avenues and modes. Violence disrupts the normal bonding between parent and child. It isolates and degrades families. Early childhood professionals can support parents and children who are victims of violence through support, education, and nurturance.
