Violence is around us everywhere. It is a very challenging issue that needs to be adequately addressed, explored and understood. In the vicious terrifying circuit of violence, children and adolescents could be witnesses, victims, and/or perpetrators. Violent behavior of any individual is a very serious and alarming sign whatever the age of the violent person is and it must be early and efficiently recognized and dealt with to avoid unrepairable consequences. Children and adolescents are the future of any community and it is advisable to raise them in a biopsychosocial healthy environment to secure their journey to adulthood. Creating awareness about the importance of minimizing the exposure of youth to violence at home, school and neighborhood as well as in the media is crucial to reduce the increasing prevalence of violence all over the world. Early recognition of violent behavior with implementation of early intervention modalities is the cornerstone of prevention of this dangerous pattern of behavior and its catastrophic consequences.
