The domestic violence is well known to all different kinds of community but diverse contexts of this social practice produce different approaches to the issue; in the international level are the judicial perspective, the health perspective and the social perspective the most common perspectives for researching this issue. All types of violence, abuse, physical, psychological violence and neglect produce a serious threat for child’s wellbeing and healthy socialization and they violate rights of the child. The Family violence prevention act already had produced an important qualitative impact to arise general social sensitivity for the domestic violence issue for the first time in the history. Sensitive approach towards changing social value of non-violent behaviour as a way of living is a long term process of building a child sensitive community.
