Speaking to ANGOP on the World Day of Child Victims of Aggression, being marked on June 4, the expert considers that child plays a major role in society, which is why it is necessary to avoid experiencing harmful problems.

The living quality of a child derives from the consequences experienced in the past, said Quintas Sempieca, explaining that physical and psychological aggressions have a negative impact on the psychosocial and emotional development of the child.

He pointed out that the frequent aggression to children can cause depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, antipathy, irritability, distrust, fear, school failure, social isolation and a tendency to reproduce aggressive behavior of which he/she is victim.

The development of family psychotherapy sessions, group dynamics, affective follow up, creation of spaces where the child can be heard in a loving way and freely express his/her feelings, desires, are among the actions that contribute to the alleviation of the effects of aggression against the child.

For the psychologist, for a child to have a promising future it is necessary that the child finds the first support, with the permanent presence of the parents.
