Violence prevention must start in early childhood

Violence against children is widespread and pervasive, and it often starts in early childhood. As UNICEF’s ‘A Familiar Face’ report notes: shouting, yelling or screaming are common forms of discipline for 1-year-olds; close to 300 million children between 2-4 experience psychological aggression and/or physical punishment by caregivers at home; 176 million children under 5 years of age witness domestic violence.
