Children can become depressed, suicidal and even lose their appetite, making them become anorexic. Children are faced with choices they never thought they would be faced with, pain they are not use to, and long lasting grief they were not prepared for. The problems that a lot of young children have to face today are beyond horrendous. There are several ways people can help children cope with these issues without stepping over their boundaries. In order for that to happen friends and family have to get down on their level and show sympathy and compassion in a way that they understand.
The children also suffer because they are now separated from one parent and no longer have both parents in the home. This devastation causes psychiatric trauma to the child’s state of mind.

The most common hardship that married couples experience when a divorce takes place is caring for any children involved. One of the hardest things for a child to go through when they are young is divorce. It effects them in so many ways that they do not have control over. Sometimes these children have more difficulty in school, more behavior problems, more negative self-concepts, more problems with peers, and more trouble getting along with their parents. The parental support needed during these times is often lacking, because parents are so wrapped up in their own problems during a divorce that their ability to function as parents diminishes (Wallerstein and Blakeslee 125).
“Emotional abuse can involve deliberately trying to scare or humiliate a child or isolating or ignoring them.” (http://www.nspcc.org.uk) One of the simple things that can hurt a kid the most ignoring them. Kids need their parents attention every minute of their life if they don 't get that attention most likely they think that their parents are mad at them. Emotional abuse can be humiliating in front of your friends, other people controlling their every day move. pushing a child so much in things that they don 't want to do, not allowing them to have friends or even choosing their friends for them. A child needs to feel safe having his friends that they can trust not friends that they choice for them.
When money is an issue panic can set in causing the parent or guardian to lash out on the child. Money problems can also lead to child neglect if the parent is incapable of providing the basic needs of the child. Sudden tragedies in a home that can lead to abuse are unexpected deaths or medical emergencies such as an expensive operation or high maintenance care, others include a parent leaving the home, the loss of a job, or even of a child is mentally or physically handicapped.

Without good counselling a child that has been sexually harmed will often have a severe negative body image of themselves, leading to them to distrust people and cover themselves up as much as they can, or they feel the need to seek approval of their image and may go the entire opposite way; looking for attention and doing whatever it takes to obtain it.
The issue of child abuse and neglect is something that happens every day to children and ruins their childhood and makes a big impact on them for rest of their life. Having children requires a lot of attention, time, love, and money among other things to raise them properly. There are some parents who are not willing to put forth this much effort in raising a child. That is sometimes where neglect and abuse start, the parent or parents decides that they really don’t want the child after all. They end up not having enough money like they once had, and the love and affection for their child is lost.
The effects of this tactic can last through adulthood, taking away the individual’s ability to move forward and starting their own life. On the other hand, some children can become extremely dependent on their parent because they are manipulated into thinking they are unable to care of themselves. Parents who have an effect on their children like this are extremely controlling but very affectionate. Their relationship of dependency with their parents can up to their adult years. Therefore, these children who are victims will remain naïve in their adult years because they were incapable of gain life skills.
As such, they will not be able to make future judgments on their own without the input from and the consent of their parents. Secondly, the excessive interference of parents into their children’s daily lives over time makes children completely unable to handle their own responsibility. It creates a feeling of lack of control and low self-esteem from the fear of failure, resulting in them resisting any kind of responsibility. For instance, children lose all sense of self-management as they grow up, since they were always instructed what to do with their time. (Scottsdale).
Also, the mother is giving her full attention to her husband because of jealously. Children may lose or lack of knowledge about parenting and child development or may feel overwhelmed by life’s other problems. Uninvolved parents tend to have little knowledge of what their children are doing. For me this parenting is very worst.
They try to grab their parents’ attention in any way possible in order to at least make it known that they feel neglected. With less attachment to parents, the child does not experience a proper way to be raised, nor do they understand their limits and restrictions when it comes to the law. Since they have no one to guide them throughout the early stages of their life, they are left to succumb to abominable habits, such as early drinking, smoking, and a rebellious attitude. In some cases, although a child has both parents, they might learn and attain criminal behavior by watching their parents’ actions (McCord). Parents that have a negative influence on their child with their own reckless behavior should be held accountable for raising them in such a toxic environment.
