Types of abuse a child can suffer

Emotional Abuse

This is the most common form of abuse in children where a child can be subject to emotional anger from their parents or another adult. It is common knowledge that a parent can be abusive without being physical, such as aggressive shouting towards their children and also intimidation is another form of emotional of mental abuse in children.

Neglect

Where a parent or guardian fails to provide for the child’s needs. This can be in many forms, such as clothing, food and shelter, through love and caring and support, by lack of knowledge and guidance, by neglecting to care for them when they need medical attention, and through lack of control and supervision of the child.

Physical Abuse

Any harmful physical abuse against a defenceless child is a sin committed by adults in order to try and control their children, but in some instances it is deemed as okay by law, such as slapping or hitting a child when they are naughty. However, some parents or guardians take it too far and use violence against children such as punching and breaking bones, burning with cigarettes and shaking a baby (shaken baby syndrome). Physical abuse is an act of impulse that can usually be brought on by the bad habits of the harmer such as alcoholism, drug abuse or by being the subject of child abuse themselves.

Family Violence

A term used when all of the family are the subject of violence from one person who tries to control. It is also referred to as domestic violence. A scenario that could take place is the mother gets physically abused by the father and the child steps in to protect his/ her mother, in which case they are then the substitute for that violence.

Sexual Abuse

Where an adult will groom the child into a sexual act to satisfy their own sexual needs. This is a cruel act of abuse in children where child cannot protect themselves from the abuse. An adult could use threatening behaviour or they could even lead the child on to believe what is happening is the right thing to do (groomed) as the adult will use manipulation against the child.

What are the effects of child abuse?

The abuse of children can have many different impacts on the mental health of the child. Severe and repeated trauma during childhood may lead the child down a long and lonely path to adulthood. A child may grow up aloof and untrustworthy of others around them. Poor physical health, unhappiness and depression and a poor mental health are other more common effects of long term abuse. An adult that has suffered is also at the risk of diseases, reacting poorly in relationships, social isolation & disconnection and may witness behaviour defects from long term child abuse.
