Stuff happens. But when it happens to a child whose brain is not yet quite developed for all the great ugliness that may visit them, then there’s a risk of forming Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or “PTSD”. It happens to adults too. But for children, matters become more complex and adulthood can be consequently tainted, sometimes seriously so. Thankfully there are therapies available to treat the symptoms of PTSD so that torment in childhood does not need to carry forward as torment in Adulthood.
