Understanding Problematic Sexual Behaviors:
Understanding Problematic Sexual Behaviors: Normal sexual development is an expected part of a child’s growth, characterized by consent between children of close age and development level, exploratory and non-compulsive nature, and behaviors that are sporadic and can be redirected. When a child’s sexual behavior becomes persistent, invasive, or is associated with negative emotions, it may be considered problematic and pose a risk to the safety and well-being of the child or other children.

Recognizing the Impact of Domestic Violence on Children:
Domestic Violence manifests as a systematic attempt to wield power and control through fear and intimidation, sometimes escalating to physical violence. This abuse of power often stems from a perpetrator’s belief in their entitlement to control another person. The repercussions of such an environment on children are profound and multifaceted.
