Keeping the Apple of Your Eye Safe

The mind of a child is like an open notebook where anything written stays with him for the rest of his life. The childhood period is considered by experts as one of the most critical periods in an individual life. Whatever he learns here and experience he gets, have a direct impact in molding his character for years to come. Therefore, it is the duty of parents and teachers to provide him with the best possible healthy surroundings full of love and security.

Identify the causes

Although every family tries to give a happy childhood to their child, yet millions of children around the globe children are living a life of abuse both mentally as well as physically. For understanding childhood violence and prevention efforts it is essential to know that the abuse of a child is not restricted to his home. A child can be abused in school, on the streets, playgrounds and even in the school. Therefore, it is important to identify the problem areas and then get the best strategy to make the place safe for the child.

If the abuse is happening in the home, then identify the source. It could be alcohol related or economic. If the problem is alcohol-related then social services should talk to the parents and tell them about the long-term effect their abusive behaviour will incur on child. It would be better if the parents are put through family therapy sessions to sort out any disputes they may have amongst themselves. On the other hand, if the cause of tension is economic, then it is wise to improve the overall financial security of the family by having an extra job if so required.

Mobilize the society for a change

Lawmakers should also chip in finding a solution to this enormous problem by passing laws to ban corporal punishments in school as well as in the house. The massive public campaign to educate people about child rights and the harmful effects of child abuse will go a long way in changing long held belief of disciplining children. NGOs dealing with the problem of children can also do their bit by visiting families who are expecting a child and giving tips on how to raise their children.

It is important that childhood violence prevention effort is treated as a collective enterprise of the society as a whole. Because, a child that grows up in an abusive environment is more likely to gravitate towards antisocial activities than the one that grows up in a happy family. Besides, abusive childhood also lead to problems of cognitive disorders that will make the child withdrawn and lacking in concentration. If not treated early, such a child will become a burden to the society. A healthy childhood is the birthright of every child and as a civilised society, it is incumbent on us to provide them with it so that they grow as fine upstanding individuals.

Don’t hit your children, make them understand things, they are not mature like you. Apologize when you're at fault.



Connect to your neighbour

How Domestic Violence Affects Children

Millions of children across the globe face domestic violence which casts a negative effect on their mind and affects their future badly. Child abuse is a common problem in every country, yet there are limited measures to tackle this issue. It includes physical violence, emotional torture, neglect etc. As per studies, around 4 million children from age 3 to 17 are exposed to domestic violence each year.

It is not difficult to spot a victim child, people often witness cases of child abuse in their neighborhood, but they don’t interfere thinking it a personal matter. A physically abused child can be recognized by bruises, torn clothes, blood, etc. Children living  in such environment go through psychological trauma and deep mental agony. Children who witness domestic violence at home develop fear and anxiety. It affects their growth and behaviour. They don’t perform in studies and remain isolated. Effect of domestic violence on Children is long lasting, it remains deep in their mind.

Kids who grow up watching domestic violence are forced to keep the matter secret. They don't  talk about it unless someone takes them into confidence. These children may look fine to the outside world, yet they carry pain in their heart and mind. Feeling of inferiority, lack of confidence and self-blame are some of the common traits in such children.  They take themselves responsible  for the misuse thinking that if they had not done or said a specific thing, the misuse would not have happened.

Children of abusive home develop disrespect for their mothers for not being able to protect her and themselves. They experience various negative emotions such as fear, anger, guilt, embarrassment, etc. They absorb several wrong notions about relationships and the society. They become irritative, offensive and self-centered.

Long-term effect of domestic violence

Regardless of a child being abused are not, he undergoes emotional trauma when he looks his mother being beaten by the father. Kids lack the love and safety of the family as the mother herself is suffering and the father has a bad temperament. Family is the first school for children, a child learns from his home, he imitates his parents. Most social experts accept that kids who are brought up in an abusive homes discover that violence is a successful approach to deal with differences and issues and they also use the same tactics in their intimate relationships. An abusive child often gets into bad company and learns to smoke and drink. Many of them become antisocial and criminal.

To conclude, a child needs love and safety from his parents to grow in his life and become a good human being. Unfortunately, childhood violence sows the seed of evil in the mind of children and they also become abusive. We need to raise our voice against the domestic violence against child abuse to form a peaceful and crime-free society.
