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.
Physical abuse means any intentional action taken to cause injury, trauma, bodily harm or suffering. 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. However, feminist theorists, Hall and Lloyd (1992), criticized the family dysfunction theory because they lack focus on the power relations within the family.
So, after it being overlooked she just had to deal with the mental abuse, and she felt helpless. Suicide has been an influence by mental health because one feels degraded. In “Child suicide , family environment, and economic crisis” explains that “compared to other age groups, the prevalence of suicide in children is more likely to be underestimated”, and this is because many overlook the fact that younger kids could have bad mental
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. If an infant is abused by an adult they know, how will that experience affect them as they grow older? If an infant is abused by an adult they know, that experience can affect their mental illness as they grow older.
Children of parents with histories of incarceration are also treated as criminals in such tender ages when they don’t even know the meaning of crime. 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. Family therapy and counseling can be very helpful in improving family environment which will reduce the chances of further exploitation and help the smooth reintegration of prisoners in the society and saving the family system from further
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.
"In the eighteenth Century America, juveniles as young as age seven could be tried and sentence in criminal courts". The sentencing of juvenile/young offenders is a harsh process because they are being treated as adults. Youthful Offenders are imperiled when treated as adults because it decreases their risk of safety to be put in adult prison facilities. Cause and Effect Many of the causes that puts young children to be in future danger are abuse, neglect, domestic violence, and poverty. Without the correct resources to help these young offenders are affected to suffer, fall into misery, struggle, and hopelessness.
These assaults often start small, a shove or grabbing your wrist, but over time it will become worst. Most likely with other abusive behaviors, like emotional and verbal abuse Psychological, emotional, and mental abuse which are linked together, the abuser uses emotional abuse to wither away their partners self-esteem and reduce their confidence to increase their reliant on the abuser. Tactics such as criticism, intimidation, isolating them from their family and friends to gain control over them(Lwa,2018). The last country, I chose is Saudi Arabia. Women were the victims in 45 % of domestic violence cases filed in the last year with the Ministry of Justice.
