From Negligence to Intimidation, what Constitutes Child Abuse? A Series of NoBullying Articles in the Spotlight Today

Child Abuse

Child Abuse

Not abusing children emotionally and physically is each parent’s responsibility.

In a world where children and teens possibly go out each day to a world of harassment and bullying, living in an atmosphere of child abuse at home is the last thing any child needs. From Negligence to Intimidation, child abuse has so many faces and forms, all are in a series of NoBullying articles, in the spotlight today.

Children can be neglected emotionally, financially or medically at home, especially with the current economic situations worldwide. Parents and caregivers may feel that putting a hot meal on the table every night is perfect parenting, NoBullying argues that that is, simply, not true.

Children facing negligence can aspire to find solace and attention elsewhere, which would mean they could potentially resort to the “Wrong type of friends” or delve into drug abuse, alcohol abuse and various forms of promiscuity.
Parents who intimidate their children, while getting what they want out of their child’s behavior, run the risk of turning their children into humans who intimidate others to gain what they want regardless of the method used or the outcome.

Parental Responsibility, in NoBullying’s opinion, entails feeding, bathing, educating, teaching, disciplining and also, loving children in a peaceful safe setting that creates fully developed characters instead of creating bullies, harassers or even what society deems “killer kids”.

NoBullying asserts the fact that intimidation and negligence are two factors in creating several defense mechanisms for children. Children who are abused in their home will most likely resort to either disappearing in the background or not reaching their full potential so that they escape unwanted attention or, worse, become abusers themselves at a much later stage in life.

Some might even argue that children and teens, who come from abusive homes, will have severe mood swings, and sometimes those mood swings can be so intense to a level beyond anyone’s control. However, when a child consistently responds inappropriately in emotional situations, or has trouble controlling the duration and intensity of his emotions, that child could suffer from Emotional Dysregulation, one of the least common signs of growing up in an abusive home. That particular issue could make dealing with the child or disciplining them a lot harder especially for teachers and caregivers outside the home.

Ciaran Connolly, Co Founder of NoBullying says “When it comes to parenting, it is no longer just feeding children, keeping them healthy and taking them to school, not abusing children emotionally and physically is each parent’s responsibility.”

He added that parents and teachers should make a point to educate the younger generations about the sad outcome of neglecting online safety and photos safety. According to Connolly, it is quite imperative to press for more firm laws condemning all acts of bullying and harassment. features many pages dedicated to parents, teens, teachers, health professionals as well as posts related to cyber safety and the latest news about law making concerning curbing Bullying worldwide as well as inspirational Bullying Poems and famous Bullying Quotes.

The website regularly updates its bullying statistics and cyber bullying statistics as it is essential to understand how widespread the bullying epidemic is. It also regularly runs cyber bullying surveys and questionnaires to get recent updated statistics on everything related to cyberbullying.

He also added that anyone suffering from bullying in any form or way can always find advice and help on the NoBullying website – and if anyone is suffering from severe consequences of bullying or harassment such as depression or suicidal thoughts, the best thing is to talk to someone locally – a parent, teacher or local organization that has been set up to help with specialized councilors to deal with this topic.
