Why do People Abuse?

 

There is no easy or acceptable answer to this question. It is impossible to understand how people can treat children in this way, particularly when the abuser is a parent. Sometimes the perpetrators are aware that their behaviour is wrong and their behaviour causes them deep distress. But some believe there is nothing wrong with their behaviour and refuse to accept the damage they cause. Often the abuser has come from an abusive background themselves and this is known as continuing the cycle of abuse. However the majority of survivors do not become abusers. There is no excuse for their behaviour - ever.

Sometimes those who abuse do acknowledge the destructiveness of their behaviour and enter treatment. However, the majority deny what they have done which can cause further distress to the survivor who decides to confront their abuser.
