“Slap Her”: Children’s Reactions

A media group in Italy recruited a few young boys for a video project, but the real purpose of the video was not explained to them beforehand.

Watch as they take direction up to a point. When the director asks them to slap a girl, all bets are off.

The result is a thought-provoking PSA about domestic violence.

Domestic violence (also domestic abuse, spousal abuse, intimate partner violence, battering or family violence) is a pattern of behavior which involves violence or other abuse by one person in a domestic context against another, such as in marriage or cohabitation. Intimate partner violence is violence by a spouse or partner in an intimate relationship against the other spouse or partner.

Domestic violence can take place in heterosexual or same-sex relationships. Domestic violence can take a number of forms including physical, emotional, verbal, economic and sexual abuse, which can range from subtle, coercive forms to marital rape and to violent physical abuse that results in disfigurement or death.

Domestic violence often occurs because the abuser believes that abuse is justified and acceptable, and may produce inter-generational cycles of abuse that condone violence. Victims of domestic violence may be trapped in domestic violent situations through isolation, power and control, insufficient financial resources, fear, shame or to protect children. As a result of abuse, victims may experience physical disabilities, chronic health problems, mental illness, limited finances, and poor ability to create healthy relationships. Victims may experience post-traumatic stress disorder.

Children who live in a household with violence show dysregulated aggression from an early age that may later contribute to continuing the legacy of abuse when they reach adulthood.

  1. This is so good. I hope my son has learnt how not to abuse a women, through the abusive role model of my ex-husband. He is an amazing man and is so protective of me. Children don’t like to see their mothers being abused.
