What is domestic violence/abuse? Simply put, it is violent or aggressive behavior within the home. Is it limited to adults? No, it can and often does include children. Can men fall victim to abuse?

However, men are less likely to report it due to social norms that can lead them to feel weak or like less of a man for being abused.
