If the abuser appears as having some social power, he or she will not perceive him or herself as powerful and in turn, the likelihood of abuse is less.
Home and community should be used as training platforms for learning how to cope with stress and other frustrations. Further, patriarchy should be used to create a peaceful environment not subordination of women. In this manner, women will be recognized as having same potentials as men.
There is need to change the character of violent in society in that people should not use abuse as a way of venting frustration and anger against another family member that perceive as responsible for the loss of power. This will create a harmonious and peaceful relationship between family members.
In order to break the cycle of violence, reconciliation is necessary which is characterized by apology, love or affection and/or ignoring the event. This stage marks the end of the violence with the promise that what happened will never occur again, or the abuser will transform his or her behavior.
