The consequences of Texas daycare child abuse or neglect depend largely on the extent of the abuse and the age of the child at the time of the incident. However, many child abuse and neglect victims do suffer both physical and mental health issues in the immediate wake of their abuse and in the years that follow.
Aside from physical scars, children may feel the lasting effects of damage to their developing brain or trauma from remembered experiences. While some children may display signs of post-traumatic stress syndrome soon after abuse or neglect, others may not show signs of emotional trauma until years later when issues surface through struggles with depression, anxiety, eating disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, or other mental illnesses.
If your child is a victim of daycare abuse or neglect, it is important to seek the appropriate treatment immediately after the abuse is discovered. Your child may need medical treatment as well as therapy in order to manage their trauma.
