Physical Daycare Abuse
While children certainly have a lot of energy and boundless curiosity, they are also quite fragile. Children can sometimes sustain a terrible injury at the hands of abusive and neglective childcare workers. The most simple form of abuse that these children can undergo is physical abuse which despite its simplicity is no less damaging. There are a number of occasions where daycare workers have struck children sometimes even with blunt objects. Physical abuse can also mean malnourishment and also restraints used against children.
Sexual Abuse of Children at Daycare
There are people that specifically try to work at daycares because they predate on small children sexually. Children that are exposed to this abuse can be psychologically scarred for life. Sexual abuse of a child at daycare can be perpetuated by workers at the daycare and even non-employees. The emotional and mental trauma of being violated as a child has long-reaching implications and sexual abuse can also include physical injuries to the child since it can also include physical abuse as well as the transmission of sexually transmitted infections.
