Legal Protection for Child Abuse Victims (Psychological Abuse)
In today's world, the borders of states are being erased and global priorities are increasingly taking the place of national interests. These changes affected not only political and economic factors, but also the most important thing in society - the family. If earlier marriages were concluded mainly between citizens of the same country, representatives of the same race and adherents of the same religion, now interethnic and interracial family relations are developing more and more in the world. These global processes did not bypass the United States either. In these phenomena, he draws special attention to the fact that in the process of both officially registered relations and in a civil marriage, a large number of children are born, in order to protect the interests of which it is necessary to use the norms of international family law. Statistics show that there are many cases when children are subjected to psychological abuse. So, according to statistics, only in the countries of the European Union, 26% - make increased demands, mock, humiliate children. In addition, in interethnic families, the role of various traditions in the upbringing of children is great. What is right in one system is strictly forbidden in another. Also, parents can take out their anger on their children for any of their personal, career or financial failures. Mental abuse often takes its toll on children, even as they become adults, leaving an unhealed emotional wound. What is right in one system is strictly forbidden in another.
