A mother's story about her son's anger and breaking the cycle of abuse

A mother's story about her son's anger and breaking the cycle of abuse
- Her decision to get out was the culmination of years of domestic violence from two partners.
However, despite Jean — not her real name — leaving her abusers behind, the long-term effects of trauma on her then 12-year-old son remained.
"There is always some kind of fallout with domestic violence, and children's brains change under that stress," she said.
"My daughter always wants to be perfect and good, while my son was kind of at the opposite of that spectrum."
Things got worse for her son 'Jack' before they got better.
