One of the things that puts people in danger in their homes as well community is domestic violence of which one will say, maltreatment.
This is a process where the freedom of people are infringed and inflicted upon just with the mindset that such people can’t fight back. These maltreatments happen based on gender, and relation.
Me being your step-mother and you being my step-daughter makes me treat you like “trash” everyday. You are made to do all the work in the house; sweeping, scrubbing, washing of clothes and utensils , cooking and all other house chores, you are denied of the ability to express your thoughts and always left out in anything the family does.
But for my children, they live like queens where they do nothing and even with such, they let you wash their clothes for them and are made to attend schools.
Such a scenario used happens in several households in different communities and has being reduced for now though but is still going on or in existence. Such infringes totally on the freedom of the child as if they were bought as slaves and as such a mean should be made to make them free of which institutions like DOVVSU and CHRAJ take care of that in Ghana.
Thee man also hitting the woman or beating her at specific time in place or random days just for a wrong on her part is also considered DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. A man is not expected to hit his wife even in case of a misunderstanding but should be resolved peacefully and amicably.Domestic violence as an act has no positive effect on the people even though, they think they are benefiting but in reality they are just harming themselves.
Let's take our effects based on the first scenario
The child's right are infringed upon by the step-mother and her biological children: Mostly, women influence their husbands to thinking like them and as a result they both make the child work like a slave and also deny her of certain rights and freedoms which is not always the best.
The mother can be dealt with by the officers in charge : While doing this, the mother gets no importance but rather makes herself a way or reason to be dealt with or punished.. While they infringe upon the rights of the individual, the individual has the right to call for help of which the mother will be dealt with for doing so.
A girl child who was late from school was punished by her step parents to kneel in some seeds for along period of time. As such, the seeds germinated and pierced to grow in her knee. When she had help, the knee couldn't be saved aside surgery. These parents were imprisoned for such a wicked act.
For the children, they think they are enjoying because they do not work at home and take part in anything but this doesn't prepare them for the future but spoils them.During marriages, they suffer because they were not taught basic household activities as such, they mostly get divorced. They become stranded and are made to learn how to do so in order to get "good marriage"and live happily after.
Domestic Violence is a very dangerous act and as such must be stopped since it doesn't add any value to us or give any comfort but rather distributes effects to the person suffering from it, the one who mete it out and all people involved.
SAY NO TO DOMESTIC VIOLENCE!!!
