A MAN WAS seen continuously beating a 10-year-old boy in a street in Jiulongpo district, Chongqing, in southwestern China. When police officers arrived, they found the man was the boy's father who was angry because his son was slow in finishing his homework. The father promised he wouldn't discipline his son through such crude means in the future. Beijing Youth Daily commented on Thursday:

Before they knew the boy was the man's son, some bystanders tried to stop the man hitting the boy. Even when it is a parent and child such intervention is to be encouraged.

Domestic violence harms minors physically and mentally and damages the dignity of a family, especially as it is women and children who are the victims. Violence within a family can easily lead to its break-up.
