Child abuse

 According to the previous researches of development of psychology, there are many evidences demonstrating that the case of child abused increased with other personality disorders and influence the their later lives of developing other abnormal behavior disorders, so I think it is necessary to discuss the child abused in this last post of this semester. Firstly, psychologists give the completely different definition of physical punishment compared with abuse. Physical punishment was defined as such condition that slap with an open hand on extremities that does not cause physical injury to the child who usually is between 2 and 6 years old. On the other hand, child abuse includes these many aggressive behaviors such as hitting with a closed fist, kicking, punishing, burning and any inappropriate physical restraints.

      Although there are no significant evidences to support that the childhood abuse was cause factors leading the any psychological disorder in later life or adulthood, the correlation between child abuse and psychological disorder is obviously exist. In the last decade, we can easily find affluent case of developing mood disorder such as major depression disorder, anxiety disorder and antisocial disorder for children who suffer abuse in their childhood. Consequently, caregiver of children who suffer abuse often likely to use physic abuse to their own children so such this negative circulation will continue and put more and more children in high risk of developing any kinds of psychological disorder. Indeed, many children suffering physical abuse were dead for consequence of daily physical abuse by their parents or caregivers. Fortunately, the government of America set up many institutions to prevent the child abused from their caregivers. For example, the hot phone line that any one can report people who take physical abuse to their children.

  1. Sadly to say that the cycle of physical and sexual abuse is repeated among those who were abused. This subject has been sort of a personal one since i’ve known a couple of friends and neighbors who were abused by either a parent or foster parent in the past. It’s terrible that something so ugly happens in this day and age.

  2. How sad it to see that parents will go so far as to abuse their children. It is also much more depressing to see these children develop psychological disorders from something they couldn’t prevent. It is interesting to me that there is a cycle, as I would hope the abused children would grow up and not abuse their children. I hope we can do more to prevent child abuse in the future.
