  • Childhood abuse in all its forms, is minimized these days due due to the lack of funding and knowledge of the true effect it has on a child’s development. The difficulty of educating parents to what is considered child abuse and what is not is not to simple as others think. Parents sometimes don’t ‘plan’ to hurt their child but consciously do. That is still considered child abuse. Arguably, it is an social problem that effects every single person.

    Google Harville Hendrix as he has some very interesting books on why we need to overcome our childhood issues to find true happiness.

    There are also many blogs out there where you can follow people blogging about living with childhood abuse and the effects on their life. One interesting one I’ve stumbled across is http://suchislifeablog.blogspot.com.au
