    • Dear America,
      I am impacted by your essay, “Family Violence Affects Youth” because you included actual statistics of people being affected. You inserted citations and a reference page which was very good. I also liked how you brought up the problem of kids not being focused in school. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Because of this many children would feel that the fights were their own fault.” I think this is powerful because this is most often the true case of what goes on in a child’s mind when they see violence.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because you had good explanations of your quotes. As well as adding in your own knowledge.
      -Alexis

      • Thank you Alex! I really appreciate you for commenting on my blog this will help me a lot to become a better writer. I wondering if you have any ideas on what I could add to my blog?

    • Dear America,
      Your essay makes an important point about children who are suffering with family violence and how they can reach out to ask for help. I appreciate you writing about such an important topic and keep on writing.

    • Hello America,
      I appreciate you writing about this topic especially on how domestic violence can affect children. It is sad to think that more than 15 million children witness domestic violence each year in the United States. I feel that when the topic of domestic violence is spoken about it is only focused on how it affects the victim and not those around them (children). I really liked how you added ways that can help children such as counseling.
