Factors Contributory To The High Incidence Of People Committing Domestic
Violence


People are becoming more inclined to
commit acts of domestic violence, and
that fact could be attributed to a number
of reasons. Domestic violence would
tackle the incidents that relate acts of
violence taking place in settings that are
considered domestic or taking place in
households. It is also possible that the
violence takes place in a marriage,
between spouses. The acts of violence
could also be from a parent to a child.
Whatever form it takes, violence within the domestic setting tends to be ugly. The victims often get
a taste of these acts of violence from those who they thought should protect them and love them
back as much as they love them. It's like the acts of violence are committed at random. There is
no rhyme or reason; they just happen.

Many people who become victims of such violence show an interest in understanding what its
underlying causes are. Bystanders and witnesses are also curious. They want to know why such
things are happening to other people. There are some cases when the perpetrator of domestic
violence can give a reason as to why he is committing violence. Perhaps he is a disgruntled
husband who found out his wife had been cheating on him. Children's disobedience and
stubbornness could also be blamed as a reason that causes parents to beat up their kids. But it is
usually not hard to see that there are deeper underlying issues ' especially given the levels of
viciousness we see on the part of the perpetrators. That is what we will try to do here: what causes
people to go the deep end and commit domestic violence to their loved ones.

The first reason being blamed for people becoming perpetrators of domestic violence is their
upbringing, or lack thereof. It is not uncommon to see people committing acts of domestic violence
when they, too, have grown up exposed to them, all in the name of keeping order or discipline.
Since they had poor training when it comes to controlling their impulses, that means they will also
have trouble keeping themselves from becoming violent towards their spouses or their kids. Or it
could be that these people have grown up with very low self-esteem since they grew up in a home
with too much domestic violence going on. These folks perpetrate violence in a bid to assert
themselves, given the fact that people with low self-esteem always feel that need to assert
themselves, and they always feel as if they are being 'disrespected.'

The second factor that correlates with a higher probability of people ending up being domestic
violence perpetrators is lack of education. People with better educations tend to be more

sophisticated in their world views, and hence less predisposed to violence (especially in the
domestic setting). But that does not mean that there are no educated individuals who still turn
violent when they get home; there are still people like that. But they are 'anomalies' since they are
the exceptions to the rule. A solid education does generally tend to reduce a person's propensity
for primitive conflict resolution methods, including physical violence.

Drug abuse is also another prevalent reason that drive people to become violent and commit acts
of domestic violence. Substance abuse (drugs and alcohol) tend to be directly related to instances
of committing violence since they are directly linked to the individual's violent impulses. We all
have these violent impulses. The question is, should we let ourselves be provoked and give free
rein to them? No thanks to the biochemical contents of these drugs and their effects on the human
body, the impulses are mostly given into by these people.
