Sadly enough, Doctors believe that the stresses of COVID-19 for parents are linked to the increase cases of severe child abuse. People have a lot of stress right now and many don’t know how they will be able to provide for their families. Any little thing can trigger them due to this stress.
Unfortunately, some take their anger out on their children. Stress is not an excuse to abuse your child. It is hopeful that caregivers see what causes them the most stress and find other non-abusive ways to cope with it. As we continue to navigate this rapidly evolving situation, it is essential to stay informed on the latest news, updates and resources around the virus and its effect on children.
