If you were born bad, mom can save you–even BEFORE you’re born! It’s hard to think of a baby being violent or destructive, but the seeds of violence may be planted before a child is born, meaning that attention to health factors as early as the prenatal stage could prevent violence in later life.
Nursing expert Jianghong Liu says, "Violence affects everyone in society and the cost of violence also has an indirect impact on our lives. As a society we should invest in better health care for early life–as early as a growing fetus–in order to minimize their health risk factors for violence. It is never too early to intervene in the development of violent tendencies."
