The impact of neglect on children’s social relationships
Neglect can have a significant impact on children’s social relationships.
Children who have experienced neglect may have difficulty forming and maintaining healthy relationships with their peers and adults due to their lack of trust in others and their difficulties with emotional regulation.
They may also have difficulty with social skills, such as knowing how to take turns, share, and engage in give-and-take conversations.
Children who have experienced neglect may also be more prone to feeling isolated and lonely, which can further affect their social relationships.
If you are concerned about the impact of neglect on a child’s social relationships, it is important to seek help and support.
This may include seeking the guidance of a mental health professional or connecting with supportive resources in your community.
