Abuse, unfortunately, affects people from all walks of life, and leaves an aftermath that can be hard to talk about: PTSD, suicide, addictions, DID, you name it.
However, pretending it isn't there doesn't make it go away.
This page might be hard to read, as some people subject their children to torture, as defined in The United Nations Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment.
However, avoiding this topic doesn't work, because survivors of this type of abuse often end up unsure what to call their experience, whether it's OK to talk about it, and whether it ever happened to anyone else....
Whatever brought you here - child abuse, rape, domestic violence, religious abuse - we want you to know you're not alone.
First, children are completely dependent on their abusers (legally, financially, physically, and psychologically); they can't divorce their parents and move out, which leaves them no option but to suffer the abuse until someone rescues them.
Second, children aren't fully developed physically; their bodies are more fragile because they are still growing, so a light smack on the back of a head, which would be of no consequence to an adult, can cause traumatic brain injury and death to a child.
It's by far the most common (and the most lethal) form of child abuse, yet the least spoken about.
Many people struggle placing "child abuser" label on a parent who didn't mean to harm their child, who struggles with various hardships and failed to do their job as well as they should have.
Talking of these feelings is hard, and even the most supportive friends can't listen 24/7. It allows you to express your thoughts, feelings, desires, plans, hopes - free of judgment or limitations.
