Domestic violence has made headlines in the media of late sadly,
ABC radio has been talking about this topic and how does one counter and fix these issues?
It is very sad that 9 women have been killed so far this year in domestic violence, I was really surprised to read that.
Why is this happening in our society?
Years ago in my 30s a neigbour was bashed about so much she couldn't stand and was found at the bottom of her garden, her husband had taken the daughter and left, he didn't want his daughter but he didn't want the mother his wife to have her, so he put her in an orphanage.
The mother spent six weeks with social workers trying to find her missing daughter. That started a friendship with our family as the little girl was a year younger than my eldest.
But the mother had to spend a whole year proving to the Family Court that she was able to care for her own child!
