The paper tells that growing or being brought up in a home characterized by violence is traumatic and a terrifying experience which can impose dire consequences on the child’s growth and development. For instance, children are most likely to fail in their academics, they can commit or suffer violence, and they may be subjected to health problems that may remain incurable throughout their lives. The society usually recognizes the gravity of the situation when women are battered; however, little attention has been directed towards children who suffer domestic abuse. The support and intervention programs have been developed in an attempt to change the lives of children who are brought up in violent homes. In addition, prevention strategies to be undertaken aim at reducing the number of children who suffer domestic violence. However, the programs usually lack sufficient funding and have been ignored by lawmakers who are focusing on increasing arrests of culprits and enhancing severe punishments on them. As such, most of the countries have failed to address the issue of children who are brought up in violent homes; thus, they cannot be assisted or supported. In addition, children growing up in homes characterized by domestic violence have a risk of being involved in extreme violence. Ideally, the overlap that exists between child abuse and domestic violence has been critically documented: in the case where there is the existence of family valence, child abuse is likely to occur. Indeed, growing up in a violent environment is a vital factor for community, and even youth violence. All these factors and issues prompted undertaking of research on domestic violence in society (Stiles 2052). This will provide an insight on strategies to help individuals who are suffering from domestic violence. This paper will endeavor to increase awareness and presumptive involvement of both men and women towards eradicating domestic violence in society. Theoretical Explanation of Domestic Violence Despite the various causes of domestic violence, research has pointed out the theories that explain the cause of this phenomenon. These theories include macro-level theories, micro-level theories, and individual theories. Macro-level theories look for the causes of domestic violence in the social structure and value systems of a society or a particular social group. The extent to which violence is culturally accepted in a society is thought to affect the prevalence of violence against family members. For instance, a consensus that spanking is acceptable, even necessary as a manner of disciplining children. This consensus presents the use of corporal punishment as a legitimate child-rearing practice. Another social consensus that lowers the threshold of domestic violence is the view of the manner in which parents treat their children. They perceive it as nothing but their own business, and that it is inappropriate for outside observers to intervene in domestic conflicts. Micro-levels theories look at

Impact of Domestic Violence on Children’s Socialisation Process.
The present paper aims to explore the impact of domestic violence on the socialisation process of children. The basic motive behind the selection of this was the measurement of the harmful impacts of aggression, torture and belligerence adopted by the fathers and husbands on children and wives respectively, on the personality of innocent minds of children.
Evidence also exists to suggest that the progress in the prevention of domestic violence has been “slow because attitudes are deeply entrenched and, to some extent, because effective strategies to address domestic violence are still being defined” (Khan, 2000).
I had become interested in the subject because during the final placement at children’s centre, we visited families and came across children who had been victims of domestic violence or been witness to it. It was found that domestic violence had profound impact on their lives, both as children as well as in their adult life.
While domestic violence has been taking place for a long time, over the last few centuries, such violence has come to be viewed, especially in the Western world, as not only being abusive in nature, but also being illegal. In many western countries, domestic violence is not tolerated by the society and it is seen to be an infringement on the personal rights of an individual.
