Violence against women is a common worldwide problem faced by all women without distinction of race, language, religion, and ethnic group. It is a serious social problem, which affects public health. Moreover, it prevents women of their most basic human rights and basic freedoms, adversely affects their health, and put backs their effective participation in social and economic life. For this reason, violence against women has being considered as violation of woman's human right for 30 years since it is an important obstacle for the progress of nations. As such, Turkey has begun to fight with violence by taking legal and administrative measures in all fields with the aim to prevent violence against women and protect the victims (KSGM, 2009). Apparently, those protections do not work enough since woman experience violence mainly from their husband even violence turns into homicide in Turkey. According to statistics of Ministry of Justice and Law, woman homicide increased 1400% between 2002 and 2009. Sixty-six woman were murdered in 2002, yet this number increased to 953 in the first 7 months of 2009 (Radikal, 2010). Unfortunately, most of the women have been killed by their husband or partner; therefore, it is one of the important issues to be investigated and acted upon it (report, 2009). Violence against women is not a crime for woman; rather it is crime for all society. This study aimed to reflect how woman homicides result in emotional and behavioral problems in children’s life when they lost their mother by focusing a case of child. Beside, this study tried to represent how her teacher struggled to deal with this child.
This study is a part of main study scrutinizing beginning early childhood education teachers' experiences in their first year of teaching. One of the beginning teachers' biggest challenges in her first year of teaching was handling a child who witnessed that her father shot and killed her mother in front of her eyes. She was experiencing severe emotional dsyregulations and her teacher struggled to help her to overcome that tragic incident in her life.
