Early Childhood Psychological Impacts of Family Violence
The child is a gift that must be treated and protected. A child certainly needs special care, not only physical and psychological protection but also by law. The recent reality, violence against children is increasingly prevalent. It is usually done by the closest person of the child. Violence occurring within the family environment occupies the largest share in cases of violence affecting children in the age range 3-6 years. Of course the impact of violence experienced by children not only physically, but also psychologically. Violence is defined as behavior that can cause the state of feeling or body (physical) to be uncomfortable. If this is missed by the attention of educators, parents and observers of children, the impact will be sustained until the child reaches adulthood. But in reality, families, especially parents, do not function properly, so children who should be protected and treated become displaced and even isolated. Surely this has a psychological impact is quite heavy. The psychological impact that arises, among other things, children who are often scolded by their parents, especially if followed by torture, tend to replicate the behavior (coping mechanism), such as bulimia nervosa (spewing food back), dietary divergence, fear of fat (anorexsia) addicted to alcohol and drugs, and have a tendency to commit suicide.
