Parents usually drop off children at daycare centers because of work responsibilities. Daycare abuse is not something most parents want to think about during their work duties. Daycare abuse has many areas that can mentally affect young children. The State of Connecticut’s Department of Children and Families says emotional abuse at daycare is the consequence when the daycare staff:
- Make cruel or uncaring remarks to the child
- Use threat as a weapon to hurt the child
- Abandons or ignores a child
- Allows a child to be surrounded by unsafe conditions that will affect their emotional state
- Denies a child the proper care and attention needed to efficiently supervise children
Examples how children can suffer emotional abuse at daycare. Children can be placed in situations parents may not dream can happen. Here are some more-specific ways children can be emotionally abused at daycare.
- Belittle/Coldness – Scoffing will make children become unappreciative of their personal potential and deprive them of the possibilities of learning and exploring comfortably.
- Harassment – Scaring a child to do certain things will create stress and fear in a child’s upbringings.
- Isolation – Separating a child from others will prevent them from establishing friendships and generally leads to depression.
- Rejection – This can lead to a child not having a healthy self-image and can lead towards disturbing behaviors as the child develops.
