One hundred of the 197 men (51%) had experienced physical abuse in the home when they were children, and 57 of them had experienced severe abuse. Physical abuse took the form of being pushed, grabbed, or shoved; having something thrown at them; being kicked, bitten, or punched; being hit with something; being choked, burned, or scalded; or being physically attacked. Mothers and fathers were the most common abusers. Men with less education and men whose parents were neglectful or showed little affection were more likely to experience abuse. Men with a history of physical abuse in the home during their childhood were more likely to have depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, legal problems, and incarceration histories than men who did not experience physical abuse.
