Do children who have been abused have problems with getting in trouble at school?

Not necessarily. Children who are abused many times will have a number of social difficulties because of the horrible circumstances that they have been in. However in a supportive environment and with proper counseling they can thrive. Child abuse is preventable- if you or your child are being abused (physical, emotional or sexual) please get out and get help.
Abuse. Children have trouble identifying their emotions and knowing how to deal with them. Acting out is often a sign of that. Counseling is the best way to help that. .
