Prevention of children abuse in family



Russian society today is characterized by fundamental changes in different spheres of life: economic, social, psychological, legal. Reformations led to a number of negative effects: sharp stratification of the population by wealth, loss of major values of social importance, including family, to the exclusion of society and the state from the responsibility for the education and moral and ethical principles formation. Negative consequences of reforms include aggression and violence growth in society, particularly, family violence, which affects mainly children as the most disadvantaged and vulnerable social group. At the same time, domestic violence growth is not only Russian, but also a global problem. Having experienced certain elements of violence, people tend to become either depressed and unable to take in active constructive position in live, or aggressive, angry at the world. Especially clearly it is seen in children, whose mechanisms of regulation and development control have not yet been formed, but only are in a formative stage.
