Why members of a family abuse the child

It is hard to believe that a member of a family can abuse a child of their own. To some of the culture, this can bring a lot of misfortune in someone’s life. Abuse of a child by a family member has become a common thing in today’s life.

We have heard mothers and fathers killing their own children. Others abuse them physically, emotionally and even sexually. Some relatives such as uncles, aunts brothers and sisters have turned to be monsters to the children they are supposed to care for.

But the question is, why do these members abuse the child? Though this should not give a justification to child abuse, some factors contributed to it. Some of them are:

  • Stress
  • Frustrations
  • Poverty
  • Unemployment
  • Illiteracy
  • Mental health problems
  • Use of harmful substances such as drugs

Let’s all try and manage stress as this contribute more to child abuse. Families should protect the children and give them the support they need. If one feel the frustrations are too much, just visit a specialist instead of taking it out to children.

Importance of Child’s Safety

As the children are still at home in Kenya, very few bother the risks they are exposed to. Some don’t care about the safety precautions on Covid 19. Others hangout out with people who may pose danger to their lives. As parents are busy to support these children’s needs, let them too be cautious on what the children do when they are away. Sometimes they can land you as a parent to trouble that you couldn’t expect.

As much as we must work, let’s not lose our children too. Parents, try all you can to study your child. It may not be easy but when the child realizes that you are concerned, he or she will change some of bad behaviours. Parents, let’s play our part.
