Violence begins in childhood

I READ in the media that CARICOM is appealing  to the United Nations (UN) for help with domestic violence. Domestic violence is said to be everywhere and  I do not think the solution, if the UN has any, will suit all people.

However, the practice of violence is an expression of character which is formed. Where does formation begin? In childhood and that is why it is said that you should train the child in the way it should go.

Violence against women and girls is practised by men. Do  the men come from Mars? Woman, wake up! Your sons and grandsons are inflicting violence on your women and girls.

Your son does  it to someone and someone else’s son  does it to you or  your daughter.
