Does child abuse lead to emotional attachment problems in kids?

It often does: Child abuse in implys that the people trusted to care for a child also inflict physical, emotional or sexual abuse.The fact that these perpetrators are supposed to create the strongest bonds of trust with the victim, often makes the victum leary of any close relationship. When their bonded abuser can be both loving & supportive & cruel & hateful, kids may distrust everyone.Therapy can help in time.
