  • Childhood abuse can develop into lifelong issues from insecurity to intimacy issues.

  • Depending on the severity, it can also cause a person to suffer Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

  • Along with mental health awareness, our team also wants to take a stand and educate the public on the dangerous effects of child abuse.

  • Some of the information we are about to share might be triggering.

  • So we advise our viewers to be careful.

  • If you or someone you know is being abused, we advise you to call your emergency hotline immediately for help.

  • Here are six types of child abuse.

  • One: Name-calling and other forms of verbal abuse.

  • While some people may argue and say that words will never hurt them, words can and often do hurt, especially when you're young.

  • Harsh words from a parent or guardian has even greater ability to hurt.

  • One study by Johnson, Cohen, and others suggest that verbal child abuse can increase the risk of the victim developing personality disorders.

  • Research by Teicher and colleagues also shows that verbal abuse can negatively alter the development of the brain.

  • As a result, verbal abuse can have serious physical effects on the child.

  • Two: Shaming.

  • Shaming people for something that isn't wrong is an abusive behavior parents can inflict on their kids to gain control.

  • It causes the victim to develop insecurities which parents can use to get what they want if they find that their child is disobeying them.

  • Over time, this causes the child to lose trust in their caretaker.

  • As they grow up, they may also become hesitant in developing social connections with people afraid that one day they will be betrayed or hurt.

  • Three: Extreme helicopter parenting.

  • Helicopter parenting is different from being a pushy parent.

  • Extreme helicopter parenting occurs when parents are so overbearing that children do not have any say in even minor details.

  • Parents who constantly check in on their child make it difficult for the child to learn healthy boundaries.

  • Furthermore, if children are pushed too far emotionally or physically, they can develop physical or mental scars.

  • Four: Sexual abuse.

  • Sexual abuse, however explicit or implicit, can cause long-lasting harmful effects on the child.

  • The child may suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and can close themselves off completely, afraid of getting into relationships.

  • This can cause them to fear intimacy. As a result, it's not just loneliness or alienation that they will experience growing up-- but they may never feel safe again because their caretaker took that away.

  • Five: Neglect.

  • Not providing a child with proper emotional or physical needs can lead to many problems down the road.

  • The child may become emotionally, socially, or psychologically underdeveloped.

  • But neglect of physical and security needs, such as food and proper shelter, can also cause damage to the child's physical health.

  • Depending on the severity, it can even result in immediate death.

  • Six: Physical abuse.

  • Physical abuse involves any harmful activity that causes a person to feel pain.

  • Kicking, slapping, hitting, throwing, biting, and choking are only a few to name.

  • The child may develop cuts, scars, bruises, broken bones, or even death, depending on how badly they were beaten.

  • Never allow someone to hit you or excuse the action even if they apologize.

  • Please call for help from the police before things get more out of hand.

  • Which types of child abuse have you heard about?
