Childhood trauma is something that can affect your child his or her entire life for the time he is able to recover or even sometimes still their death.
You see the mind of a child is quite simple. Children are simple creatures. They like something they take it without knowledge as to the obstacles or the risks involved in it. Whereas an adult you become rational thinkers.
But you see the mind of a child is very sensitive to events, happenings, and people.
Now childhood trauma is something that can haunt the child forever and may affect their decision-making skills as well and not to mention the fact that they become mentally tortured.
You need to be very careful of the world you are exposing to your child and you need to be careful regarding every moment they experience because if they do god forbid bear witness to something horrific or irregular or are collateral damage in something else then they cannot come back from. That is why often children are mentally disturbed from broken families because they might have experienced the separation of their
parents at a quiet and early age. Or the fact that why is their family broken.
Being careful is key to securing their future, try to present the situation slowly and effectively or try to help them through the trauma at that age instead of ignoring it and let it rise until that finally blows away.
