Product Overview

This book examines the risk factors surrounding children at risk of experiencing and perpetrating violence, and looks at the positive role that children''s rights can play in their protection. The authors propose that violence in childhood is not spontaneous: that children are raised to become violent in poorly functioning families and child-unfriendly environments. They may be exposed to toxic substances in utero, to maltreatment in infancy, to domestic violence or parental criminality as they grow up. Each of these risk factors is empirically linked with the development of antisocial and aggressive behavior, and each reflects a violation of children''s rights to protection from maltreatment. The authors show how respecting children''s rights and safeguarding them from exposure to violence can shift the balance between risk and protective factors and, as a result, reduce the incidence and severity of childhood violence.
