La prevención contra la violencia debe empezar en la primera infancia

La violencia contra los niños es generalizada e invasiva, y con frecuencia comienza en la primera infancia. Como lo señala el informe "Un rostro familiar" de UNICEF: levantar la voz, gritar o vociferar son formas comunes de disciplina para los niños de 1 año; cerca de 300 millones de niños de entre 2 y 4 años experimentan agresión psicológica y / o castigo físico por parte de sus cuidadores en el hogar; 176 millones de niños menores de 5 años son testigos de violencia doméstica.
