Family violence will never stop. It will escalate time to time. The only way to arrest family violence lies in these two areas;
1. married man and woman must know the importance of marriage and family life.
2. we as parents needs to teach our kids on the importance of marriage and family life.

Without considering the above points, the exercise to track down family violence is waste of time and valuable resources. There is great moral decay in those who do not understand the importance of marriage and family so our actions will go in vain.

Hotline counselling has done a good job but something more to be done.

I have seen that some of the so-called PNG counsellors need to get more training to deal with violence against women and girls more professionally rather than operating on an ad hoc basis.

Instead of helping their clients, they add more problems to the original problems.

The government has to spend more money educating real counsellors to deal with the pressing and underling social problems especially gender based violence.

The violence meted out to the weak, the poor, the vulnerable, and especially women folk in the country reflects a crumbling society; a society that has weak institutions, and those entrusted to address such issues not doing their job.

PNG counselors are doing a good job in a pathetic situation.
