Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Nowadays, cases of violence against children (child abuse) are increasingly happening. Often times, these actions don't come from strangers, but rather the caregivers, relatives, or even the parents themselves are taking care of the child. This violence can take many forms, from neglect, physical violence, sexual violence, emotional violence, and verbal abuse. Each of these types of violence can have a negative impact on the child in the future.
Some of the conditions that can result from physical violence against children include:
Affects the brain's stress response, so that the child becomes more reactive and less adaptive Cause mental disorders, such as depression, anxiety disorders, dissociation (withdrawal), post traumatic stress disorder, difficulty concentrating, difficulty remembering, eating disorders, the tendency to injure themselves (self harm) ), or even suicide Interferes with children's cognitive development Triggers an imbalance between children's social, emotional and cognitive abilities Inhibits language skills Increases the risk of chronic diseases in the long term, for example heart disease, hypertension, atherosclerosis, high cholesterol, etc. Causes physical injury, including bruises, wounds, fractures, and even death. Preventing and overcoming physical violence against children is the responsibility of all components of society, not only family members, but also neighbors, community leaders, doctors, teachers, and so on. Therefore, if you become aware of acts of physical violence against children, immediately report it to the party authorized to handle it, namely the Ministry of Women's Empowerment and Child Protection (KPPA).
