“I could tell you about something that happened when you were a baby,” (carver 1327). He could have just told the story without introducing the father and daughter in the beginning, but Carver did not do this in order to show the interaction between the father and daughter.

Moreover, this strain makes it harder for the family to keep a relationship with their father while he is in prison. Phone calls to prisons are expenses as well as visits.

• Psychodynamic Theories The Psychodynamic theory explains child abuse as a “parental dysfunction.” Followers of this theory such as B.F. Steele (1987) stated that ‘the abusive parents submit their children to traumatic experiences similar to those they had endured during childhood.” Therefore, child abuse is explained as a cycle due to the parent having experienced such behaviours from their parents as a child, hence now displays similar behaviours to their child as a parent. • The Sociological Theories There has been much agreement with Steele’s approach, however, it has been criticized to the extent that abuse against children is not necessarily only due to the parents’ experiences as a child but the abuse of children can also be as a
