The aim of this review is to increase awareness amongst all professionals dealing with children (in areas of health, education, police, social services, etc.) of the negative impact that violence against women has on them. Children from these homes generally share situations of violence, either directly or indirectly, with their mothers or with female figures who take on the role of mothers. The consequences of this form of abuse affect child development in all aspects: physical, cognitive, emotional and social.
