From Rochester's bed being set on fire whilst he was sleeping, a houseguest being ferociously bitten in the middle of the night with marks left by human teeth, to Jane's bridal veil being torn in front of her on the eve of her wedding, these vile acts bear a tale much darker than what is initally shown to the reader and the residents of Thornton.

Introduction Domestic violence occurs between two adults in a relationship that includes one controlling the other, resulting in physical abuse or mental abuse and neglect. Some of the contributing factors that initiate the domestic violence includes being insecure, non-employed, drinking and using drugs. These factors can result in one getting hurt or dying from their inflicted injuries. Furthermore, children can be emotionally and mentally traumatized over the course of events that they witnessed in the home and act out their aggression in school.

These definitions prescribed the expected behaviour of one kin to another, and gave the members of the family a code of conduct. After some dissatisfaction regarding the definitions of family, anthropologists created a new notion of the term ‘family’. This was done by the exploration of people residing in the same house, and researchers came to the conclusion that the actual doing of a resident in a house seems to be more significant than their blood connection.

Every day, we see kids getting slapped in Wal-Mart or the grocery store and parents threatening, “Just wait till I get you home!” In recent months, we have heard tales of the mother who drowned her five children, and the mother who starved and imprisoned her daughter. Students are killing one another in our schools, and the media is quick to report on every detail of their home lives. After a while, as we read these accounts, we become numb, write them off as yet another example of bad parenting, and think to ourselves, “Gee, that’s too bad. I really feel sorry for the
 Control-freaks, Irene and Lydia, aim to regulate as much of their lives as possible, Irene by straightening her pleats and Lydia by preventing her rooming-house from becoming a source of rumors.  When Irene boldly lies to her school principal, “I looked her straight in the eye the way people do when they are telling the truth…‘She hit him’” (19), she reveals her intent to harm the reputation of Miss Brown, which, by extension allows Irene to control her own life.  Throughout Rattlebone, gossip remains a means to a both good and bad reputation, which governs the lives of
