and bring about a semblance of normalcy in their lives, while others continue to suffer from the severe effects of the act(s and can never be the same again. Our findings generally are consistent with other studies that have examined childhood antisocial behavior as both a consequence of child abuse and predictor of later (adult) criminal behavior (e.g., ; Topitzes., 2011 ). It is the duty of the parents to talk freely about this evil to their children, and make them aware of it, so that they can understand what they are going through if they are ever subjected to it in the future, thus enabling them. As illustrated in, emotional abuse was both directly related to crime (.27,.05) and also indirectly related to this outcome through childhood antisocial behavior, when examined for the full analysis sample. That is, physical and emotional abuse predicted childhood antisocial behavior (.16.01 and.13.05, respectively which, in turn, predicted later adult crime (.57,.001). It is a pity that a large number of such cases go unreported every year, as many children who undergo this trauma are either scared to tell the elders or are not taken seriously. In contrast, there was no evidence of a higher risk of adult crime among those who were chronically emotionally abused.
One of the most visible and apparent physical signs of neglect is the skinny or bloated appearance of a child, which is a result of undernourishment. The correlations are consistent with those in models of abuse presence and available upon request. They leave a permanent impact on the mind of an abused child, who is likely to grow up into an individual with many psychological problems (abandonment issues, anti-social tendencies).
It can take several forms, and cause long-lasting scars on the body of the child, as well as the mind. Whichever the case may be, child abuse kills the child in a kid. This, then becomes the duty of the elders, especially the parents, who need to educate the child in this regard. The coefficient for the path between physical abuse and childhood antisocial behavior was.17 (.001) and that for childhood antisocial behavior to adult crime was.62 (.001). Coefficients were.12 (.10) for chronicity of physical abuse on childhood antisocial behavior and.60 (.001) for childhood antisocial behavior to adulthood crime. It is to prevent this, that treatment in the form of counseling and support becomes an absolute necessity). Sexual Abuse: This is when an older person uses the body of a child for his sexual satisfaction.
