There are a few limitations to this study and
the first one is the sample size. This study did not include children that are
special needs and was only tested in the Bronx area of the U.S. It included
children from a specific age and grade, while more results could have been
expected with a variety of different ages amongst children. Domestic violence
affects a lot of children, not only 10-13 year olds. Future research that can
be done to further the findings in this study could be a target population and
longitudinal study with children from ages 5-18 and another specific location
other than the Bronx. Another limitation was the small-time frame to observe
the children who have been affected by DV. There should be more focus on
children’s behaviors to fully understand how much of an impact DV has on them
because some children more than others from different ages go through
psychological, behavioral, emotional, and physical issues. Being able to
observe them for a longer period of time can help explain what exact issues the
child have and how to help them cope and prevent them from having a challenging
future when they get older, such as juvenile delinquency and substance abuse.
Some children witness DV so much that they often times become accustomed to it
and it important for us to understand the different kinds of domestic violence
a child may be going through or witnessing. Being that this is a vulnerable
population, it is imperative to make sure the children feel safe and
comfortable with the study. Not all of the time will you get the response that
you want when you’re talking to a child about such a sensitive topic. The
ethical thing to do is make sure your participants are comfortable and fully
aware of the study they are taking part in. Having them feel safe and trust
your judgement about the study and data that you’re collecting will help them
not be as suspicious or skeptical about completing them. For confidentiality,
it is best if I provide them with a description of any risks and benefits, and
offer to answer any inquiries, and a fair explanation of the study to be
followed and their purposes.
