The word “abuse” is used to refer to negative event that emotionally shake up a person and weaken their mental, physical, and emotional growth. Children may face abuse over one incident or a continuous event over a period of time. The types of abuse which lead to difficult psychological consequences are the ones related to interpersonal or intentional trauma such as physical or sexual abuse, psychological abuse, and neglect. If a child has been through some type of childhood trauma, its symptoms may include changes in eating or sleeping habits, nightmares, anger, unreasonable fear, hallucinations, etc.
Children with childhood abuse face trouble in regulating regular tasks and control their emotions. They may become afraid of new situations and new people, may have negative thoughts, become difficult to console, and may become aggressive at small things. There is why you see hell in the eyes of the devil, who have nothing but anger to touch an innocent soul. Which causes our world to come to an end. Like ones said before “One believes things because one has been conditioned to believe them.” (Huxley) Child abuse in our society is not only physical violence; it can cause emotional abuse and neglect. The children will grow up in a state of fear, without clearing the limits they will need, healthy psychological and social development.
There is a lot of families that neglect their children in different ways. Physical abuse is the most painful out of all the above. Children can get abuse more than just bruises or broken bones, physical abuse does not only leave a scar physically but mentally as well. Child abuse consists of different factors such as making the child feel worthless or stupid, be put into dangerous situation, ignoring the child’s needs and many more. Many parents like to physically abusive because they think that their actions are simply forms of discipline, ways to make their children learn to behave, but there is a big difference between teaching children how to behave using physical punishment to discipline and physical abuse. In that point of discipline teaching those children from right and wrong and not try to make them live in fear. Another part of child abuse is emotional abuse, which can easily damage a child’s social development or mental health.
Emotional abuse is like brain washing in that it systematically wears away at the victim’s self-confidence, sense of self-worth, trust in their own perceptions, and self-concept. The worst type of abuse that a child can faced is sexual abuse which is the most complicated form of abuse, because it causes guilt and shame. Sexual abuse is not only for girls, it’s also for boys too who are at risk as well.
