Children don’t know how to act when they are being mistreated by their authority. It can confuse the child when the person that is supposed to care for them and love them says just the opposite. The more negative comments the child hears, the more they believe them to be true and the more the child is damaged. Some parents may display more acts leaning towards active emotional abuse and some may lean more towards passive but none of the parents fully understand what affect they are really having on their
Maltreatment of a child can come in many different forms. Personally I think that physical child abuse is the worse because some children get hit for unnecessary reasons. Majority of children being abused would not tell since they are scared of their abuser. Children are more likely scared of their abuser when the abuser randomly decides to spank them just to relieve some stress that the child is causing at that moment. Signs of physical abuse in children could be bruises on covered body parts, hand print bruises, burn marks, fractures, and history of consistent
Whether it’s biological or environmental, personality disorders including depression, narcissism, and anxiety in parents directly affect their children. Everyone has someone they looked up to as a kid; children look to their parent to see how they should behave in society. When a parent has a psychological disorder, they have an inconsistent parenting style that can confuse the child as to how adults want them to act; a depressed parent can express anger one day, urging their child to get away from them, and sadness the next, looking to their child for comfort. Other symptoms are withdrawal, and a sudden lack of interest in things they used to enjoy. Depressed mothers view their surroundings negatively, which causes them to see negative characteristics in their child, making their parenting style cold, detached, and inconsistent.
The consequences of a child getting mistreated young may endure long after the neglect occurs. People having children and not ready to be parents. Scaring the child for life because they decided that is was fun to beat on their child and abuse them mentally, and some even sexually. The effects can appear in all aspects of life, rather it is psychological or behavioral. There are three main effects of neglect and abuse that can range from minor physical injuries, not getting along with others, or can become aggressive and affect them later on in life.
Some narcissistic parents are emotionally and mentally abusive to their children, this can often make the child question their worthiness. Since some parents are dependent on their child and form a dependency bond between them, it affects and strips the child from having a normal childhood. Most who suffer from narcissistic parenting are left wondering why their experiences are much different than their friends. Some parents would also pretend to be sick or unhealthy in order for the child to continue taking care of them; this cripples the child from developing their own independence. The effects of this tactic can last through adulthood, taking away the individual’s ability to move forward and starting their own life.
And those are caused some negative attitudes of many parents of teenage children imposition and authoritarianism, misunderstanding, disrespect, intolerance, impatience, distrust, fear to be "out of hand" are parents instead of helping the children; exercise new skills like; reflection, critical thinking, reasoning, moral autonomy, privacy, openness to friendship, etc. the parents are engaged with the best intentions to stop them.

Sometimes children get hit, though it may or may not hurt them they still cry because their feelings are mentally hurt at the fact that the adult figure finds it okay to put their hands on them. Surprised almost, that the idea of causing pain on you came from someone that should be nurturing and protecting them. Almost saying it is okay to have any sort of physical harm come from them from themselves as well as anyone else, let alone a stranger. Child abuse is one of many problems in this world and has been not fully looked at as a whole for it to be changed. Child abuse is a very sensitive issue and can be reduced if recognized the correct way.
Spanking can cause a child’s perception to become confusing. They start to recognize adults as violent, and get scared of them, making them questionable of family, teachers, and other adults. They see their parents hitting them, so they think that it’s okay to hurt others, and they think it’s okay to put their anger on someone else. Spanking teaches a child fear, teaching them that they have to lie so they don’t get struck, causing them to continually lie throughout their life. It’s not right to hit your child, while teaching them not to hurt others, it can often confuse them, and that’s when they start to make up their own rules.
In many homes parents fail to see the warning signs leading children to become a bully or be a victim of being bullied. Feeling bullied must feel horrible! Having a similar person being hurtful to the other. For a child who was not brought up in a bad environment it is extremely difficult to understand why another child his age is being hurtful. They wont understand they are being bullied and become afraid.
They may think that when they are punishing the child for doing something wrong, when they are physically abusing a child.
