How to Recognize EMOTIONAL ABUSE
By Tristan Galdo
what is Emotional Abuse?
do your part and become aware
how to prevent it!
-make sure the public is aware about emotional abuse and try to educate those who don't know,
-help parents or caretakers learn how to strengthen their bond with their child and express their love
-encourage families to form relationships with support services, such as parent support groups and early childhood education, if any available,
-help the public learn about the stages of child development so they know the appropriate expectations of certain aged children,
-LEARN to recognize parent or caretaker behavior that : ignores a child, is verbally assaulting, over-pressuring, bullying, rejecting, and keeps the child isolated from friends and social interactions.
-MOST IMPORTANTLY- REPORT ABUSE WHEN YOU SUSPECT IT !

if you see it, stop it.
what happens behind closed doors might not always leave a visible wound.
How often does it happen? more then you think!
