Researchers Tyler Chapple, and Bersani, (2005) observed that emotional neglect also enhances externalized behavior in children, particularly through violence and distance amongst their peers.

Child abuse has been found to have bad effects on the lives of the abused victims. Psychology shows that children who are physically abused tend to develop some aggressive behaviors towards themselves and their surroundings, and children who suffer from emotional abuse tend to build unhealthy relationship in their adulthood. Many children grow up with no proper care from parents and this can make them dangerous to themselves and the society. The purpose of this essay is to explain the problems the abused victims are faced with and how child maltreatment can be prevented. Research performed by some authors has also shown that children who are abused have the tendency of becoming abusive parents themselves.

As a result of the experience of emotional abuse, physical abuse, and sexual abuse in childhood, it has various effects for the mental health, and physical health of children. Inter-personal and social functioning during the childhood and adulthood accompanies these three types of abuses.
Parents who abuse are people who have been abused and neglected themselves as children(Long Term Consequences). There are links between neglect and abuse and later psychological, emotional, behavioral, and interpersonal disorders. The basis for this linkage is the impact that abuse and neglect have on brain development. Researchers have found important links between interpersonal experiences and neurobiological development. Children who have been sexually abused are at significant risk of developing anxiety disorders (2.0 times the average), major depressive disorders (3.4 times average), alcohol abuse (2.5 times average), drug abuse (3.8 times average), and anti-social behavior (4.3 times average)(Crouch).
In Starr and Wolfe’s book The Effects of Child Abuse and Neglect (1991), they discuss the developmental outcomes of child maltreatment in a life span. Development in a child has critical period that can be effected if traumatized in the process. Aspects of low adult psychological outcome have been shown in some studies. It was found that... ... middle of paper ... ...ects of childhood abuse on the quality of life and health of older people: Results from the Depression and Early Prevention of Suicide in General Practice Project.

Childhood depression is a mental illness that affects children's behavior and moods. If it is not treated, in years to come it may lead to school failure, use of alcohol and/or drugs, or even suicide. Depression in children is caused by a possible combination of several things. It can involve the child's environment, genes, or children with medical problems. The most common causes of depression evolve from children who have been abused, who have chaotic families or households, non-consistent parents, neglect, or other stressful events.
New research proposes that children whose parents are divorced had a difficult time adapting to the social, mental, and physical changes in their lives. Children between the ages 3 to 5 years old have a higher level of feeling insecure than those children whose parents divorced when they were older (Author Unknown, 2013). In the early stages of childhood development, kids are most inclined because of the rapid time of change and learning. Regarding the reasoning for divorce, children become emotionally, socially and physically vulnerable because the child tends to blame him or herself (Welton, 2014). These feelings of blame then lead to aggression, anger or anxiety.
Elaborating on the definition of negative emotional expressions, Schwartz et al. (2012) differentiated between submissive (unhappy) and dominant (combative) expressions because they are conveyed differently and; therefore, could predict distinctive symptomatology. It is essential to gain insight into the development of these symptoms in adolescence because raised levels of internalizing symptoms over time have been found to substantially increase the possibility of developing depression and anxiety disorders (Klein, Shankman, Lewinsohn, & Seeley, 2009; Pine, Cohen, Cohen, & Brook, 1999). Aggression is thought to induce fear and compliance in others (Keltner & Kring, 1998). Therefore, extended exposure to aggression from the parent can produce anxiety and/or depression symptoms in adolescence (Rodriguez, 2003).

How does domestic violence between parents and parental figures affect the children who witness it? This is a question often asked by Sociologists and Psychologists alike. There have been studies that prove that children who witness domestic inter-parental violence experience mental health problems, issues with gender roles, substance abuse, the committing of crimes and suicide/suicide attempts later in their lives. This paper will explore all five of these 'effects' of domestic violence on children and show that there is evidence of a clear relationship in which increasing parental violence is associated with increasing outcome risks (Fergusson & Horwood, 1998, p.8). When a child witnesses domestic abuse it can have many different effects on the child.
