The Impact Of Child Sexual Abuse
Children are not emotionally equipped to deal with most things adults deal with. This has to do with both emotional and physical maturity. Issues an adult faces after a childhood injury or traumatic event can impact their lives on different levels. As childhood sexual abuse is one of the most traumatizing things a child can endure it stands to reason that issues after the fact can be:
- Drop in grades
- Decrease in church and or religious activities
- Advanced knowledge of sexual activities or sex in general
- An inability trust others
- Trouble sitting or walking
As you can see there are many different signs and symptoms of childhood sexual abuse. Some are present now and others are deeper and may not manifest for some time well into adulthood.
