Violence and cruelty have no excuse, but when it happens within the family, this situation goes beyond reasoning. How can the closest people shout and even beat their beloved? Unfortunately, this problem is quite widespread. Domestic violence is present in families worldwide; parents beat children, husbands beat their wives, and even wives beat their husbands. Statistics show that an average of 20 people are subjected to physical abuse in the United States every minute. During the year, there are about 10 million women and men who have suffered because of violence.

What is domestic violence?
1. Verbal, emotional & psychological abuse
Such violence is used for intimidation and humiliation. The abuser starts shouting, swears a lot, tries to put pressure with the help of words. It is difficult to say that such violence is less painful compared to physical. In some instances, it may be even more damaging since it leaves distressing memories in the person’s psyche.
2. Physical abuse
It includes not only serious injuries, but also pushing, slapping, choking, biting, and other physical means of harming a person. Of course, it doesn’t concern playful entertainment; it is only about deliberately causing damage.
3. Sexual abuse
This type of abuse includes forcing, rape, and intimidation to engage someone in sexual activity. Different kinds of influence can be used as threats, ending up with harming other close people.
4. Other abuse
Moreover, there are some lesser-mentioned types of abuse that are commonly used in families:
- social (prohibitions on communication)
- spiritual (religion)

Even though each of these types is terrible and deserves a separate discussion, today, we want to draw your attention to physical violence. Have you ever heard your neighbors screaming loudly and throwing objects around? Did you do something about it or decide not to interfere? Lack of action is the worst possible reaction. Horrific stories shock the internet all the time, and many times such cases of domestic violence ended with death. However, the most important question posed to abusers always remains unanswered: "Why did you beat the person?"
Sometimes you hear extremely shocking arguments. Today, you will hear about one such incident, which fortunately didn’t end with death, but is nevertheless just as shocking.
Beaten for being mature

A 49-year-old father admitted that he had beaten his daughter when he saw her with makeup, planning to leave the house without permission. A man grabbed a 17-year-old girl by the shoulder and then by the neck, and hit her hard on the dresser. The poor girl believes that her father didn’t like that she looked so mature and didn’t ask permission before going for a walk.

The man doesn’t deny the beating. He admitted that he even took the phone from his daughter, but she found the mother’s one. The man’s only explanation for his shocking behavior is that she must ask if she can leave and not inform she is leaving.
The girl didn’t want to open a criminal case against her father, because she hoped they would be able to normalize the relations. Nevertheless, his punishment is still severe. He has received 9 months of community service, 15 days of rehabilitation activities aimed at eliminating his abusive behavior, as well as a fine of $222.
Unfortunately, there are plenty of such absurd stories across the web. People commit violence against others over trifles!

Remember that no one ever has the right to beat you or your child. A person isn’t endowed with absolute power; therefore, harming another person is illegal and must be punished by law.
Don’t keep silent about such incidents! Don’t be indifferent! Start helping yourself and others if you know that they need your help. Who knows, you may be the only person who can provide it.
