Last year ABC News reported that in Australia domestic violence is the leading cause of death and injury in women under 45, with more than one woman murdered by her current or former partner every week. There are young victims too, with more than one million children affected by domestic violence. Accounting for 40 per cent of police time, the cost to the economy is $13.6 billion per year.
It further reported that there were at least 1,625 domestic violence related incidents on the NSW North Coast in 2013.
So what changes so dramatically between the attitude of male children to domestic violence and the attitude of so many adult men?
