This research is about, how physical violence affects the attachment between parents and their child as well as the reason for a child to stay loyal even if their parents are using physi-cally violent towards them. The attachment theory of Bowlby is the basis of the research be-cause it explores which the types of attachment patterns and their development. There are four different patterns, the secure attachment, the anxious-ambivalent attachment, the anx-ious-avoidant attachment, and the disorganized attachment. Whereas three of them are cate-gories of the unsecure-attachment. If the parents are not caring enough or giving the child, the security they need they become an unsecure-attached child. However, if they do give the child the security they need and simultaneously physical violence is used towards them, the child becomes a disorganized attached child because of the trauma that may occur. This kind of attachment influences the life of the child, how they see the world and their capability of forming and maintaining healthy relationships. To answer the question regarding a child’s loy-alty, the word had to be defined and its origin explained. Loyalty in the family is a given that one cannot influence much. Usually, it is based on love exhibited by the family but sometimes children develop loyalty based on the fact that their parents have given them life only. Finally, the effects of physical violence are shown and how they cohere with the causes of violence. In the end the conclusion is that violence affects the attachment but not the loyalty.
