Childhood Sexual Abuse: How it can effect your child as an adult

Childhood sexual abuse hasn’t been studied a whole lot till more recently in the past few decades. It’s also something a lot of people are unaware of inside their own household or environment. When a child has been exposed to beatings, emotional abuse, such as foul language, or even sexual trauma to name a few it can have a huge effect on them greatly. Take a look at beating your child to start off. When your child goes to school and they show up with bruises, scars, or even serious injuries, it can raise concern from a teachers perspective. Then as an adult, they can inflict that same pain to their own children if they have any because that’s how they were raised as a child. Everything has a cause and an effect. As a parent you can potentially get your children taken away without even knowing it. You may think you’re doing the right thing but in reality you’re causing more harm than doing good. Sexually abuses your child is definitely a topic a lot of parents or anyone wants to talk about, but it is something that needs to be addressed. Abusing your child like that, especially at such a young age can make them feel so insecure about themselves and can leave ever lasting scars. It can effect the way they’re able to build relationships with other people especially friends or even a potentially spouse. They may never feel comfortable ever having sex as an adult ever again because of the trauma they had lived through and experienced. As a child, they don’t talk about those kinds of things because there is a fear of getting harmed from that parent, when they return from wherever they were at, like school or sports practice. There is a great risk of developing anxiety of any kind and even depression. Lastly, abusive language can leave a mark on your child and can reflect on how they develop as an adult. Abusive language can lead to your child abusing others with language because they don’t know anything else. Their social skills and development has been greatly impacted because it reflects back onto how they were raised. These three things are also things that can lead to crimes of any kind. We need to be aware of our actions as humans because it can leave impacts good or bad.
