In brief: Sexual Abuse

Sexual abuse can be very devastating to a child.
Early sexual abuse can create emotional lability, negative or even suicidal thoughts, repressed sexuality or uninhibited sexuality. When a child is sexually abused, the sexual boundaries are violated and the child doesn't know how to process the intense emotional and sexual feelings. Typically this leads to negative feelings and behaviors.
