Abused children and childhood trauma

publicity prevents abuse, secrecy encourages it

The position of a mentally or physically abused child is difficult. It's often difficult to be heard or taken seriously. Some cultures even accept the rejection of an unmarried child as a normal legal act. And then the child who is innocent for these events will have to pay the consequences inhis or her adulthood. Unemployment and mental problems are much more common in adults that are mistreated in childhood. They get a strong competitive disadvantage for the beginning of their own life. When my own father rejected me he just told that I don't belong to his life and that no one would believe me if I try to tell the truth. And he was right. There was no social media in the 1990s. I had to wait over 20 years to tell my story without censorship
I encourage all abused children or already adults who were mistreted as a child to share their stories. This makes the life of the abuser more difficult and perhaps even prevents these things to happen.

The Body Keeps the Score

Trauma is a fact of life. Veterans and their families deal with the painful aftermath of combat; one in five Americans has been molested; one in four grew up with alcoholics; one in three couples have engaged in physical violence—the body keeps the score. That’s how Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, one of the world’s leading experts on developmental trauma, explains how our long-term health and happiness can be compromised by prior exposure to violence, emotional abuse, and other forms of traumatic stress.
