NWARW Nnayakkara

There have been some changes in the living conditions of the household due to the modernization. In that complex social context, the family unit has a peculiar place. Many social problems have arisen due to the rapid rise of domestic violence in the family unit in modern society. Women as well as children are constantly harassed due to domestic violence. The main purpose of this research paper is to identify how domestic violence affects the process of child socialization. It also identifies the impact on children and their consequences. Domestic violence contributes to the socialization process only if it occurs as a punishment. Beyond that, the abuse of children, both physically and mentally, and the constant harassment of children can lead to arbitrary behaviors as well as physical behaviors in children. These behavior patterns of children are detrimental not only to the family but to society as a whole. This has become a social problem and this study has a temporary significance.
