“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.

Why treat one with violence, which will eventually lead to one maneuvering their way when treating his parents to avoid the violence against him or her. Not only that, but also one will also use violence against his parents when one grows up to protect oneself from their parents’ violence. Parents Violence against children lead to many negative effects in their children’s life and even leads to crimes. People might think that violence discipline the kids and prevent them from arguing with their parents and following their orders without even asking. I agree that it does discipline the kids only when they are young but as they start to grow up it all turns upon the parents who should have known that a turning point in his or her life would come where they treat their parents the same way they treated him when he or she was young.
When a parent or both of the parents are depressed, they don’t want to do anything, which includes raising a child. When a child receives no parenting, he will grow up with bad manners, or even worse physical or emotional problems. Some people with depression will constantly ask their children for help, like bring thing them this and bringing them that. Children will grow up to not respect their parents, and maybe even hate them. Another factor that can diminish the quality of parenting is parents arguing, as shown in “The Little knife”.
While many adults would argue that hitting people is wrong, spanking children continues to be used as an acceptable form of discipline. Many parents think spanking will teach children not to do things that are forbidden, stop them quickly when they are being irritating, and encourage them to do what they should. So what do children learn from being spanked? The hitting itself doesn’t teach them anything. How contradictory is it for you to say that your child cannot hit or hurt anyone else—but that you can hurt him whenever you think it's appropriate?
Parents who are physically abusive may believe that their children need to fear them in order to behave, so they use physical abuse to keep their child in line. However, what children are really learning is how to avoid being hit, not how to behave or grow as individuals, (Child Abuse and Neglect Recognizing and Preventing Child Abuse). Parents may think that by beating a child they are managing the child’s behavior. They are wrong. If they think what their parents did to them worked, they are wrong.
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. This not only delay the maturation of their children but also provoke situations of isolation and
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.
The reason morality falls into play is because the child may feel that strict parenting is because the parents “hate” the child. Growing up, most children rebel against their authoritative parents while their brains are still developing. The only thing the parent can do is demonstrate to their children that their actions have repercussions. This may result in physical discipline for the child, or verbal discipline for the child. Typically a parent would not endure in such actions, but it varies from parent to parent.
What can parents do? First of all parents feel that the children are theirs, and they can spank them when they misbehave. There are many factors that lead to physical punishment: parents were to young and not ready for children, parents are going trough a divorce and need to take out their anger on something or someone, or parents do not know another way to punish their children. These children grow up to be aggressive and often abusive towards others. Although parents think this is the only way of educating their children there are many other alternatives.
