A lot of children may feel like they have a less stable family because of divorce. When my parents got divorced I was 5 years old and all I remember are the little things. I remember watching the fight that broke my parents up, but I don’t remember what was being said, I remember running to my sister crying saying that I’d miss her, I don’t remember my mom going to jail, but I do remember her calling me and telling me that she missed me. Once
My mother emotionally, verbally, and physically abused my father in front of my brother and I, consequently, we both suffer from severe anxiety and I have found myself in an abusive relationship as well. My father who is not a tiny, helpless man, wasn’t able to defend himself because he chose not to. 3Nearly 8 percent of males who have reported domestic violence have been shot at, stabbed, or hit with a weapon. Men who are victims of domestic violence stay in the relationship because they want to protect their children and fear they will lose custody if they chose to leave, they feel ashamed to have been beaten down by a woman, and the lack of resources that are available. Tribal courts lean in the mother's favor and that can be very intimidating, especially after being verbally abused by the mother of the

In a world of a rapidly aging population, there are many roles now associated with caregiving. Some are caregivers to family at home, while others are caregivers for nursing homes and others facilities. Shockingly, elder abuse is a common occurrence within elderly caregiving situations. In an article written by Sherri Snelling in 2015, we see two cases of elder abuse- one in which Jean Kasem neglected her husband, radio DJ Casey Kasem, and another where Linda Maureen Raye refused her mother adequate care, which led to her death. Both of these are extreme examples of elder abuse, but more mild forms of this happen every day.
This abuse started in the 1950s and it affected many people from the time the abuse occurred until later in their life or even their whole life. For example in 2012, at least 40 people committed suicide in Victoria because of the abuse they had faced. When the children told their parents and the authorities, they brushed it off just like the Victorian authorities did about the gold licence fees. When the discoveries of the abuse were found to be true, many people lost faith in the Catholic Church. This became worse when the church attempted to cover up the abuse stories.
I questioned why my father left and why my mom and I moved. What I realize now is that, without my parents divorcing, I could not have received the opportunities afforded to me. A few years after my mom got divorced, she remarried and I gained a man who I now call my dad.
I was 18 at the time and I meet a guy. We fell in love fast. He was separated from his ex and she was pregnant.she was going through a difficult situation. So my boyfriend and raised his baby for over a year. That baby meant the world to me.
They knew that there were people leaving their families, some fighting their families, and sadly, many never coming back. But there were few who could overcome this war time and respect the individuals around them as friends, not enemies. The fact of losing a brother over something not governed by your decision is one of the hardest things to handle. This stress was piled onto by the losses of siblings, parents, or any family member, along with the biased opinions of many that were the cause of riots and beatings. The author of Across Five April understood how few Civil War time Americans were kind, honest, and willing to overcome their most deep opinions to support those who have suffered from wartime
- When abuse has been ongoing for a length of time , the victim can feel like she/he deserves the abuse, is in denial over the extent of the abuse, embarrassed about others finding out, fear being killed if they left and fear the impact on the children or losing the children. Many victims of domestic and family violence, believe nothing can be done for them- they see on the news how little action is done such as in the case of Benjamin Ard and the assault of two women. In this case Ard charged with domestic violence, but was released from jail on $1,000 cash bail. He went on to breach his bail and was then charged with domestic violence assault and violating the conditions of release from a prior charge; he was sentenced to only thirteen months
Nursing Home Abuse Not Just a Staffing Issue For years the term nursing home abuse has been used to indicate when one or more members of staff are caught physically abuse the residents. This is absolutely reprehensible behavior that should result in instant dismissal and in most if not all cases prosecution. In fact, one out of every five nursing home residents has experienced some form of physical or verbal abuse, according to a Weill Cornell Medicine study conducted by Dr. Mark Lachs and his colleagues.

Simply put, a clear majority of the homeless are in fact veterans. The article Elderly Homeless Veterans in Los Angeles also defined that within a study all veterans “reported to have had deteriorating health mentally and physically,” but have you wondered if women or men are affected more? The U.S population is about 318 million, 49% of which is male and 51% of female. In a documentary titled Her War, Mimi Chakarova states that there are numerous government reports have uncovered that last year (2011) the number of homeless women had “more than doubled”.
