How Sexual Abuse Negatively Affects a Child


Sexual abuse is seriously traumatizing and damaging to a child’s physical, sexual, psychological, and emotional well-being, particularly if it was perpetrated by someone they know and trust.

Children who have been sexually abused are at risk of developing various problems such as:

  • Depression and anxiety that can result in a withdrawn behavior, suicidal tendencies, and sudden outbursts of emotions
  • Difficulty sleeping due to increased nightmares of relieving the repeated sexual abuse
  • Post-traumatic disorder and inability to trust adults

The daycare center or school where children spend the majority of their time must be a safe environment to avoid any occurrence of sexual abuse.

A To Z Fun Care Preschool & Child Care Center is a trusted preschool in Potomac, Maryland where we provide a secure learning place for children, free from any kind of abuse and negative influences.

As a provider of reliable child care in Maryland,we give our young students high-quality programs that will help them grow up to be upstanding members of society and that they are prepared to face different challenges that may come their way.
