DL: We wouldn't knowingly hurt or frighten a child, and yet, we have seen, violence does frighten children. They become
uncertain and insecure. When children are frightened and insecure, they look to their parents, or those they love and respect, for reassurance and guidance. We know from our wartime studies
that children, when they go through bombings and violence, moving, cold and hunger, without any lasting affects if their parents were there. On the other hand, children taken from their
parents, and moved to safer places, often became disturbed. Thus, we see that violence threatens children. The pain, anger, hysteria, and fear is disturbing to them. They look to their
parents or loved ones for support. If these parents represent violence, or condone violence, the children become very upset and disturbed. Disturbed children are sick children. They may not
look sick, or act sick but they are sick.
