7 Ways to Curb Kids' Exposure to Violence

Did you know that U.S. children are more likely to be exposed to violence than adults? According to the U.S. Department of Justice, most American children are regularly exposed to violence — in the media, at home, in school, and in their community — and incidents of violence can affect them throughout their lifetime. Limiting kids' exposure to violence can help reduce the risk of overall violent behavior in children — from bullying and gang violence to school shootings and self-harm — as well as the risk of depression, anxiety, and other mental-health effects of violence.
