  1. It's a complicated subject. The child's age, gender, community and support system -- or lack of it -- can influence how violence affects a child. Then there's the intensity, frequency, duration and nature of the violence. Some children may experience more severe effects than others with a similar background. A young child subjected to violence regularly will react differently than a teenager who witnesses one isolated violent incident.
