Child abuse is a phenomenon in today’s society. Many people have been victims and although it has been taken into consideration, more surveillance should be taking place. There are three types of abuse that ruin the life of a child: physical, emotional, and sexual. However, focusing on domestic violence, a child will be affected by physical and emotional abuse. The problem is that some parents may not even consider how it affects their child in public places. When a child has been abused, how long does it affect him or her into adulthood? Though there are different ways to discipline, a parent can choose from a variety of rewards to reinforce good behavior; furthermore, a trusted committee should organize ongoing parenting classes to help parents to control their temper. What are the other consequences of abuse?
Parents who abuse their kids were abused and had a poor upbringing. Nowadays with technology and researches found, they could help change and also teach their kids to avoid the same mistakes when they grow up. As the child grows, parents can set limits instead of violence. Fact is that when kids behave out of the normal, it is not to make parents angry but because they are in need of attention. We all know that parents’ the first reaction is to lose it, so instead of punching, parents can try time outs until the child comprehends why he or she is being punished.

Abuse occurs in families from all social economical levels, but in my opinion, it occurs from stable families where stress can make people lose their temper and hurt their children. It is hard to come home from work after dealing with a boss who dislikes his own job, making your job harder than it seems. Therefore, to strengthen family bonds, the government should form a coterie who can offer their time to counsel those stressful parents by organizing sessions on parenting classes in the neighborhood. Parents could learn to control their reaction by either taking deep breaths after talking about the incident or to accept that a child doesn’t understand what adult stress is about. Parents need relief from the ongoing stress of being with children just like a student needs relief from doing homework. After a hard day of work, they could ask themselves what they need to do before socializing with the family such as going shopping, walk, and even calling a grown friend to help release the anger. Controlling temper will be an ongoing process but I believe there is hope to stop domestic violence.
