The available research has focused predominantly on factors that keep rural women trapped in violent relationships, such as financial insecurity, dependency, and stress; a perceived lack of confidentiality and anonymity; and stigma attached to the public disclosure of violence. The social phenomenon of street children is increasing as the world�s population grows. (Casa Alianza, Worldwide Statistics 2000) Between 133 and 275 million children worldwide are estimated to witness domestic violence annually. (UNICEF, 2006) The exposure of children to violence in their homes on a frequent basis, usually through fights between parents or between a mother and her partner, can severely affect a child�s well-being, personal development and social interaction in childhood and adulthood. (Violence and Victims, 2002) Intimate partner violence also increases the risk of violence against children in the family, with studies from China, Colombia, Egypt, Mexico, the Philippines and South Africa showing a strong relationship between violence against women with violence against children. (WHO, 2002) A study from India found that domestic violence in the home doubled the risk of violence against children. (Journal of Pediatric Psychology I, 2000) Reporting on a wide range of developing countries, the Global School-based Health Survey recently found that between 20 and 65 % of school-aged children reported having been verbally or physically bullied in the past 30 days.

Females are 78% of the perpetrators of fatal child abuse, 81% of natural parents who seriously abuse their children, 72% of natural parents who moderately abuse their children, and 65% of natural parents who are inferred to have abused their children.

Children who have suffered severe abuse need to be rescued and given safe and permanent homes with adoptive families, in good orphanages, or (where these are not available) in stable foster homes. Limitations of the Colman and Widom (2004) study include that their findings might not be generalizable to the entire population of abuse and neglect cases, since they used court-documented cases of children ages 11 or under.
