IT HURTS (From a Child's Perspective) (Paperback)
Abused and neglected children still love their parents and family. However, regardless of their age, many have wondered and asked the question, "Why?" A typical response from any traumatic event, incident, or memories of those painful moments. Every child deserves to be heard and to have their basic needs met by their loved ones. When a child encounters a bad moment in their life, it can sometimes lead to trauma and have more of a negative impact on a child's development and emotional state. Any child maltreatment, abuse, and neglect can have enduring physical, intellectual, and psychological repercussions into adolescence and adulthood. This book covers some of these feelings, such as hurt, shame, sadness, or thoughts that a child would or would not say verbally. Yet we can all agree that every child is deserving of a safe, healthy, and protective environment that displays the positivity of family and love.
