The Impact Of Childhood Neglect

The Impact Of Childhood Neglect

Neglect is defined as the persistent failure to meet a child's basic physical and/or psychological needs, which can seriously interfere with their health and development. At Jenny Seale Coaching, we help survivors of complex developmental trauma such as neglect find a path to healing from abuse.

Disrupted Attachment

One of the most significant impacts of childhood neglect is a disruption to the attachment process. This can lead to difficulties in forming and maintaining close relationships later in life. When a child does not receive the love and attention they need from their caretakers, they may come to believe that they are unworthy of love.


Emotional Struggles

Children who have experienced neglect are also more likely to experience emotional difficulties later in life. They may have trouble regulating their emotions, which can lead to problems with anxiety, depression, and anger. They may also struggle with trust issues and have difficulty forming healthy attachments.


Behavioral Struggles

Children who were neglected are also more likely to have behavioral problems in adulthood. They may act out in aggressive or destructive ways, or they may withdraw and isolate themselves from others. They may also engage in risky behaviors, such as substance abuse, as a way to cope with the pain of their childhood experiences.


Poor Risk Management

When children are neglected, they may also learn poor risk management skills. They may be more likely to take risks without considering the consequences, or they may engage in risky behaviors as a way to cope with their feelings of pain and isolation. This can lead to problems in every area of life, from personal relationships to financial stability.
