In terms of emotions, the child may be on the “baseline of unease, intermediate states of anxiety or extreme panic, fury and despair” (108). This may be because of an unsteady attachment in childhood due to the fact that most child abuse happen in a family-like environment. Herman mentions that the emotional and behavioral impact of chronic child abuse go hand in hand. People who experience chronic child abuse or neglect believe that the only way to end the emotional state that they are in is through self injury (109).

It depends on how a child is able to control such aggressive impulses.

As World Health Organization said in their report in 1992 " that 97% of children abuse cases are caused by an addicted person". Then effects can affect children for long-terms, because when the abuse stop, the impact of child abuse does not end.
Living in different environments will affect the types of behaviours developed by children. As an example, if a child is living in an unhealthy environment (e.g. constant family/marital conflict), the likelihood of the child developing negative behaviours is higher than a child living in a healthy environment.
