In this text, Betsy Groves debunks the myth that young age is a protector against the lasting effects of witnessing violence in the home. She makes the case that traumatic events carried out by family members carry the most severe psychological risks for very young children and uses cognitive research to explore how very young children process violence. Groves draws upon the Child Witness to Violence Program's award-winning training programmes for parents, teachers, police officers, clergy and paediatric health care providers to lay out ways adults can understand and protect the very young children who see too much.
