Child abuse: the bomb in the brain

This excellent scholarly video shows in great detail the devastating effects child abuse has on a child’s brain.   It also outlines that over 67% of child abusers are parents – as appalling and grim as this number may be.  And the statistics detailed in this video are broken down by the number of  “adverse childhood experiences”.  Even one single of these experience – and it includes verbal and physical abuse – yields incredibly striking results 50 years down the line as children grow into adults.

A powerful research result video that will,  hopefully, open people’s eyes about this serious problem.  The next time you want to retort to spanking – think of this.   At which point does one experience becomes an “adverse childhood experience” ?  Why take that risk?

You can also watch the following video for the detail of the brain functions affected by child abuse:
