Effects Of Family Violence In The Military
Pre-deployment affects families just as much as the deployment itself. Stressors for the family while their family member is on deployment are affected by the demands of the family, illnesses, marital issues and other problems (Fraser, 2011). The article also addresses and investigates 57 families but they only sampled families who mainly deployed only once. The age of the children were also a factor because if they only test children under the age of 3, they have little knowledge of their parents. I would say that older children are affected much more because they would be used to a routine with their parents, have conversations with their parents and have expectations of their parents. Smaller children are only being nurtured in my opinion.
Domestic violence in military families
This article expresses concerns that people have about the violence that families face in the military. It can also be determined that there are similarities in those who abuse others. It also asks the question about why someone would want to intentionally harm another. Is it the show of power, control or envy? Or is it just disrespect? The article really does not offer any suggestions to what the answers are but I would say that it is a combination of all of the above for the abuser.
