Violence causes more injury and death in children,
teenagers, and young adults than infectious disease, cancer, or birth
There is no single explanation for the violence caused by
youth. Many different
things cause violent behavior in children. The more
these things are present in a child's life, the more likely he or she is to
commit an act of violence. Behavior will change depending on a child's age and
gender. Violent behavior may be targeted at parents, other children, friends, or
other family members.
