What will your child remember about the Texas daycare abuse that they endured? Will they carry images with them of their sexual abuser? Will they internalize the pain they felt when they were struck? Will they feel like they did something wrong – or that they deserved it?
The emotional process that your child will undergo after suffering from daycare abuse or neglect depends on many factors, including the age of your child, the severity and duration of the abuse, and the relationship your child had with the abuser. In addition, different types of children will react to abuse and neglect in different ways, with some children acting out and others turning inward. One child may simply withdraw from the world, lose interest in activities, and isolate herself. Another child under the same circumstances could lash out, display anger management issues, and engage in risky behavior.
Whatever your child’s response to abuse, it is important to understand that emotional trauma issues can take months or years to show themselves – and that your child’s reaction could change over time and even spill over into adulthood.
Here are just a few common trauma-related mental health issues that have been proven to result from child abuse and child neglect:
- Post-traumatic stress disorder.
- Anxiety & panic disorder.
- Depression & suicidal thoughts.
- Dissociation disorders.
- Reactive attachment disorder.
- Anger & rage.
- Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
All of the above mental health issues and emotional disorders can be treated and managed with therapy and medication. However, many child abuse victims who suffer from these problems face years of effort and significant medical bills in order to conquer the consequences of their abuse.
