impact of foreclosures on children children suffer most from foreclosures and financial stress: How Foreclosures Affect Children - 07/18/12 01:26 AM
 How Foreclosures Affect Children
 
Has anyone picked up today's article in DSNews about the impact of foreclosures on children? I must admit, until I read this I never gave this particular subject a lot of thought, despite the fact that foreclosure now apparently impacts some eight million children in the US.
 
The key points of the article include:

Children suffer more than anyone from a foreclosure.
There's a strong link between the rate of foreclosures and the rate of physical child abuse!
Researchers apparently found a 3% increase in physical abuse, 5% increase in traumatic brain injury with each 1% increase in 90-day mortgage delinquencies.
