Parents need help too

Re: Domestic violence, love and the Bible’s formula for happy couples

I agree with all this but I would like to add to the family violence discussion that parents of both genders need help in understanding the damaging psychology on children when they are beaten by parents. 

I know of mothers in Samoa who wail mercilessly on their young children too. This is a family problem. 

Families need help with this. As long as there are no places for parents of both gender to get help the children will continue to suffer and often become violent adults.
