Report finds children experience violence across all stages of childhood

The UNICEF report A Familiar Face: Violence in the lives of children and adolescents examines four specific forms of violence experienced by children: violent discipline and exposure to domestic abuse during early childhood; violence at school; violent deaths among adolescents; and sexual violence in childhood and adolescence. The report shows that children experience violence across all stages of childhood and in diverse settings. Children are most likely to be exposed to violence in the home – worldwide, three quarters of children aged 2 to 4 years are regularly subjected to physical punishment and/or psychological aggression by their parents or other caregivers at home, and 1 in 4 children under the age of 5 years live with a mother who has been a recent victim of intimate partner violence. Read about UNICEF programs and the report.
