    • Dear Surako,

      I am intrigued by your post “Podcast about domestic violence,” because the title caught my eye and it motivated me. I can relate to the problems your speaking on but also it could motivate many others going through similar struggles.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “One can only help those who want to be helped.” I think this is positive because you can’t help everybody. Some people don’t want to be helped and some can’t reach out for help but desperately need it. If a person doesn’t want to be help then theres no way you can help that person out. Most women may think they’re too good for help or don’t need it until the outcomes is bad.
      Another sentence that I agreed with was: “Many women don’t leave their relationship because that show their partner shows they love them.” This stood out for me because I totally don’t agree with this but I know most women involved would agree. Most women start to get brainwashed to the violence and it soon starts to become regular for them. Just because your partner is sorry and loving after the incident doesn’t mean he loves you because if he did he wouldn’t of did those hurtful things to you.
      Your post reminds me of something that happened to me. One time I helped my friend out of violent situation before it was too late and it made a big difference in both of our lives.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you have a powerful way with words and you state the facts instead of hiding things and waiting till a problem occurs to then speak on the situation.

    • Dear surako
      I am grateful about your post “Critical Conversations About Domestic Violence” I think it’s very sad and nasty that millions of men would abusive women in every different way. Such as physical, emotional, financial, digital, spiritual, sexual and verbal. This really stands out to me because my mother was in abusive relationship and it’s hard to see how many women suffered like the way my mom did. Thanks for writing I look forward to see what your writing next because this really inspired me to know this important information.

  • My application of genetic engineering I have chosen, is knowing more about cloning. I choose this particular application because I learned about cloning recently and I thought interesting to learn more about it.

    • Hello Surako, Cloning is a great topic to go deeper on in Genetic Engineering! The fact that science continues to grow and grow, what are the possibilities that we might be able to clone one day? I think cloning is something that can either help us or hurt us so as you continue to research I hope you get the chance to decide if cloning would be beneficial for us or if cloning could be a bad choice.

    • Hey Surako,
      I think this: http://ncadv.org/learn-more/statistics should be a good link to help with your research. I hope to see what you write about this topic soon!

    • I think your research topic is something that is an important issue. What age demographic are you looking into researching? because your research could go several different ways based on ages you choose from. You could also look into different kinds of abuse. there is physical and emotional abuse and both are very harmful. This is an interesting article I found https://psychcentral.com/blog/archives/2014/10/13/21-warning-signs-of-an-emotionally-abusive-relationship/ which tells about signs you are in an abusive relationship which may give you some insight. I think this could be really interesting If you focused on a specific age group and talked about different kinds of abuse.

    • I think that it is great that you are doing a project on this, because it is something really important to talk about. It looks like you are looking more at dating and abusive relationships than abusive relationships in families between parents and children. I think one really good thing you could look into would be the differences between a physically abusive relationship, an emotionally abusive relationship, and a healthy relationship. Physically and emotionally abusive relationships are super dangerous because they are hard to escape safely. https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/presence-mind/201510/how-help-someone-in-abusive-relationship Is a great site to go to to look into ways to help and find out more.

    • Surako,

      Abusive relationships, both physical and verbal, have been a problem for all cultures throughout history. You said you were looking into brainstorming a solution to the problem, which is really important research. The best place to start is to look into the root causes of these toxic relationships and the results of the abuse on the victim, and even the perpetrator. http://www.ugr.es/~prodopsi/sitioarchivos/Archivos/Walker%201999.pdf
      I would give this article a look! It could help with your research. I hope to see more on this soon

    • Surako,

      I think that your interest for this research is important. I think that you can go a long way in describing abuse from different standpoints whether it may be from the man or from the woman. I also would love to see some research done on verbal abuse among family or couples. I feel that verbal abuse does not get mentioned as much as many other abuses and would be a great addition to your research. Verbal abuse is a terrible thing to experience of which I hope no one endures. I have done some research on verbal abuse myself and this link provides more information on verbal abuse: https://news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/2007/04/verbal-beatings-hurt-as-much-as-sexual-abuse/. This is another link as well that focuses more on verbal abuse as well. https://www.fsu.edu/news/2006/05/22/invisible.scars/. When it comes to relationship abuse too, it is important to know some of the signs of abuse that occurs. This link will give some insight these signs: https://www.fsu.edu/news/2006/05/22/invisible.scars/. Finally I would like to add on a final link so that you may have a wider range of sources for your research, https://www.helpguide.org/articles/abuse/domestic-violence-and-abuse.htm. One question that I might have is do you think it would be best to include sexual abuse? I hope that your research goes well and that you may bring more awareness to abuse among relationships and family life. I applaud you for taking such a strong interest in this subject field and look forward to reading your next post.


    • Dear Surako
      For one to be helped or seek for help they most know the the problem, meaning you can not help any one from an abusive relationship until they want you to do so. Many people hide their feelings because of “love” and that makes it hard for individuals like you and I to just interfere in their relationship.
      No one deserve to suffer for love or put their lives at risk for love, and for that reason we all have an important role in this issues. An abusive relationships start with an abusing, controlling manner. Any sign of violence whether is control, humiliation, yelling or any other thing that makes you feel inferior to a parterre is an indication of abuse.
