Destructing oneself by using different substance abuse is the worst thing an individual could do to himself.
Consumption of alcohol, cigarettes, and drugs are increasing among youngsters day-by-day.
It happens because of the family problem, divorce, fight with friends, feeling of rejection and solitude faced by an individual.
Children who see their parents as Alcoholic from their very childhood phase become one of that when they grow up. Parents should be more aware while taking care of their child.
What you show them, they become one of them.
The treatment of foster parents and adopted parents also leads an individual into destruction. The love and compassion a child gets from their own parents can’t be compared to the adopted or foster parents; caring and understanding may be different, child may not feel comfortable the way he gets from her own parents, which leads an individual to the point of Self-Destruction.
There are other factors also leading an individual to Self-Destruction-:
PHYSICAL ABUSE AND NEGLECT
Physical abuse is an inappropriate use of physical force against a child such as pushing, shoving, smacking, hitting, whipping, slapping, pinching, burning or beating.
Physical neglect occurs when the parents provide the child with adequate food, clothing, shelter, or medical attention or when they leave the child alone for long stretches of time.
VERBAL AND EMOTIONAL ABUSE
Like physical abuse, verbal and emotional abuse is a form of violence and self-destruction leading.
Emotional abuse includes-
- Constant criticism, judgment
- Yelling, screaming
- Humiliating the child
- Threatening the child
- Lying to the child
- Comparing the child to another
Finally, let us remember that the effect of abuse is deep and pernicious.
