This is due to their previous experience with adults who abused or molested them. A child who has been sexually assaulted will feel insecure in the society and feel that everyone is going to hurt them. They will have a little self-possession, feel lonely and irritated. Moreover, the child can sense helpless, fear losing control and lack of respect and trust in authority. It is impossible for them to trust anyone that easily because of the past experiences that they had.
Another most common is sexual assault. So these cases of wrongdoings have been decreased by arranging seminars and public development programs targeting children were carried out and are still working. Lots of offenders get imprisoned, orders are sent for better monitoring of aggressors in the community, offenders treatment programs are also working. All of these together made this decline
Physical and emotional abuse, including social ostracism, has short-term and long-term consequences for the mental and physical health of individuals who are the victims of it. The experience of abuse makes a child more likely to be affected by stressful environment and leads to a number of physical problems. In addition to this, child abuse negatively influences children 's cognitive skills, their ability to concentrate and participate in social situations. Some people might, however, believe that the hardship that an individual might overcome in his or her childhood might, in fact, positively influence his or her assertiveness and inner strength. The experience of abuse will not make a child stronger or more resistant to external social influences.
ii. Family Dysfunction Theory This theory explains that the family’s interactions may lead to abuse and often abuse occurs in broken relationships. Some reasons why children are confined to violence by a parent is because they are considered as a way of ‘getting at’ the other parent or that he/she may be a ‘scapegoat’, the unacceptable in the family and the cause for all the family’s ills. Kempe and Kempe (1978) suggested that sometimes child sexual abuse may help in keeping the families together; a teenage girl who is being sexually abused by his father who himself is in need of emotional and physical pleasure because such relations have been broken with his wife.

Infant abuse is more common than people think it to be. People should care because this is a serious situation and if we care then we can help the infants who were at one point abused by an adult and give them the right help they deserve.

They themselves are victims, who suffer the stigma attached to their parents. Social workers and policy makers should take responsibility for the proper rearing as well as education of children in their homes or foster care centers or inside prison.

In this paper, I will argue and show parents how spanking and physically disciplining our children can have negative and detrimental consequences because it causes psychological damage, a lack of trust between child and parent, and when it is not done in the right mind set it can lead to more serious matters such as child abuse. “In 2012, a national survey showed more than half of women and three-quarters of men in the United States believe a child sometimes needs a "good hard spanking." ” Some may argue that spanking helps the child realize that their behavior is wrong and needs to be fixed, when parents discipline physically it might be a quick fix to stop the behavior, but as time goes on it does not only harm them physically but mentally and socially. While I agree that when a child’s behavior is wrong, we need to help them fix it, but I disagree that it should be done by physical punishment. Studies show that when kids are spanked or physically punished they tend to act out in the same way and choose to be aggressive like their parents.
