Some of the symptoms of preschool abuse and daycare child abuse can help you to better understand how the abuse is oftentimes carried out. Most predators are very good at covering their tracks. Oftentimes, the process of covering their tracks involves certain types of abuse in and of itself. The predator will know how to manipulate people to get what they want. Most abusive personalities have a strong component of narcissism, and narcissists are usually very good at figuring out how to manipulate people to their own ends.
One of the advantages that an abuser generally has over their victim is fear. The victim will learn to fear the abuser to the point that they will be willing to cover for the abuser to avoid suffering any more than they already are. In addition to protecting themselves, the abuser may make threats against the victim’s family, pets or other people at the victim cares about. This places the victim in a position where the only way they feel that they can protect the people that they care about the most is to remain silent and endure the abuse.
Defeating abusers and getting their victims to talk is oftentimes a very difficult process. Understand that the victims have very good reasons to be afraid of the abuser. After all, they have already been victimized enough by the abuser that they know all too well how cruel and sadistic they can be. One of the things that counselors, the authorities and other people who will want to help the victim will try to do is to disempower the abuser in the eyes of the victim. Once victims feel safe, they are usually more likely to speak about the abuse. Part of what an abuser does is create an environment where their victims feel constantly threatened.
Coping with the fallout of daycare abuse can be a very difficult process. Oftentimes, the child who was abused and their family will need a great deal of counseling to get over the abuse. Even then, it can take many years and a lot of work for the family and, especially, for the child to learn to go on after having been victimized so horribly. Daycare abuse oftentimes goes on for a very long time. Remember that the people who prey upon children are oftentimes very good at what they do and that it takes a sharp eye and an attentive parent and daycare staff to root them out.
