Here is the essay:
VIOLENCE AND KIDS
Kids are like sponges - they want to talk, dress, and act like their parents. And eventually they will also pick up their good and bad habits. The chances of becoming an aggressive person are great when you live in violent ambiance (work cited).
Even in their early ages kids see and hear everything between their parents, but kids may not distinguish what's right and what's wrong and think that this is something they should do when grow-up. A lot of today's teenagers living in violent families show signs of violence such as starting fights in school, substance abuse, joining gangs, and robberies .They could also experience academic problems, low self-esteem, fear, depression, phobias, etc... or sexual problems and criminal behavior (Newton).
But everybody is different; we can't say 100% that kids will become violent. Many traumatized kids seek the help of their friends or specialist. A lot of them swear that they would never allow such behavior in their houses one day.
An example of such heartbreaking story is Curtis Jackson or also knows as 50 Cent. 50 Cent lived without his father and was going back and forth from his mother's house to his grandparent's house. His mom was a drug dealer. After her death, at age of 13, 50 Cent took over her place. He was the leader of small group dealing with drugs. One night he got shot nine times. He survived after a year of rehabilitating in the hospital. Now 50 Cent is of the most notorious rap starts in the world (50cent.com). This is an example of how parents' behavior could affect the life of a child. In his case no parents were present after his mom died.
