Why do people abuse children or any one?

Report as

Cupcake, as a daughter of abusive and neglectful parents I can only say that they lack empathy. One of mine is a true narcissist and isn't capable of thinking of children as people. They are no more significant than creatures. The other is mentally ill but like you I feel there is evil there.

My parents seem so normal and charming on the surface it's scary. They were just awful with their children. One parent can only now start to face the issue a bit. The other just blames us kids. Very sad. I'm a grandma, so I've had years to process this and forgive (not forget).

They may have emotional problems or they have been treated poorly and need to take their pain out on someone else

Adults abuse adults to feel power over another person. Adults abuse children to feel power over their own life and because they think the child is an extension of themselves rather than a unique individual.

The adults abusing adults part may be true but abusing children takes a certain kind of evil. Don't make excuses please!

I'm sorry, what did I say that sounded like an excuse? Could you point to specific words or terms that constitute an excuse or a justification rather than just an explanation?

they do it because of how they were raise and because they dont know whats right from wrong if they parents teached them nothing but to do something wrong i feel some people don't realize how abuse harms a person until there in the hospital or about to lose there life it sucks it takes a person ending in the hospital to get people to care or realize there mistakes some people don't think about there actions before they do it they just do it out of stress or madness or issues by someone else that made them trigger to abuse there love one but i wish people would realize there crimes can effect alot in there life and change everything for the one being abuse .

I only take a bit of issue with this. My siblings and I were raised about as badly as you could be, yet my sisters managed to be good parents and wives in long lasting marriages (me too). I doesn't always follow that abusers come from abusive families or that if you come from an abusive family you will abuse your spouse or kids. We didn't come out unscathed. I spent years in therapy. My brother was a lifelong addict and he eventually died of complications. But my point is that being an abuse victim doesn't mean you will be a perpetrator. You can survive and thrive.

thats true i did and i feel alot of people can but some people tell that its because of how there parents raised them in the past idk why people abuse people but its hard to get over and overcome but the people that do are really strong to have dealt with all that i didnt mean anything badly from what i said either way the subject is still bad and needs to be put to a stop
