Abstract

Children abuse is a threat to the development of children. Emotional abuse is such a classification of children abuse which kills children’s mind silently but deeply. Although the government and non-governmental organizations are taking many steps to prevent other kinds of children abuse such as physical abuse or sexual abuse, but due to silent killing nature of emotional abuse it is quite unaddressed and un-redressed by them. In this paper I tried to discuss the aspect of emotional abuse elaborately and its impact on children’s psychology. A structured questionnaire survey was conducted to examine the level of emotional abuse among the respondents. The field survey shows that families are not conscious about their treatment of children. So my concentration was to focus on the life-long impacts of the emotional abuse on children and to recommend a strengthened children protection system including community people to prevent and protect children from emotional abuse.
