Mental Abuse
Psychological abuse, also referred to as emotional abuse or mental abuse, is a form of abuse characterized by a person subjecting or exposing another to behavior that may result in psychological trauma.
Emotional abuse of a child is commonly defined as a pattern of behavior by parents or caregivers that can seriously interfere with a child’s cognitive, emotional, psychological or social development.**
Some parents may emotionally and psychologically harm their children because of
This abuse may include educational neglect, where a parent or caregiver fails or refuses to provide the child with necessary educational services; mental health neglect, where the parent or caregiver denies or ignores a child’s need for treatment for psychological problems; or medical neglect, where a parent or caregiver denies or ignores a child’s need for treatment for medical problems
Either physically or psychologically, the parent or caregiver is not present to respond to the child. He or she may not look at the child and may not call the child by name

Alcoholism and Fathers
Alcoholism in parents including fathers can have adverse effects on the children, such as the following
Guilt -The child may see himself or herself as the main cause of the mother's or father's drinking.

Anxiety - The child may worry constantly about the situation at home. He or she may fear the alcoholic parent will become sick or injured, and may also fear fights and violence between the parents.

Embarrassment - Parents may give the child the message that there is a terrible
secret at home. The ashamed child does not invite friends home and is afraid to ask anyone for help.

Inability to have close relationships because the child has been disappointed by the drinking parent many times, he or she often does not trust others.

Confusion - The alcoholic parent will change suddenly from being loving to angry, regardless of the child's behavior. A regular daily schedule, which is very important for a child, does not exist because bedtimes and meal
times are constantly changing.

Anger - The child feels anger at the alcoholic parent for drinking, and may be
angry at the non alcoholic parent for lack of support and protection.

Depression - The child feels lonely and helpless to change the situation.

Transiency and its Effects on Children
Transiency in families with children can have severe effects on said children as a result of not having a permanent home
43% of children of travelling school age children were not in school
As many as 400,000 children in the US may have a homeless parent
Development is delayed in children as a result of the stress of being homeless
1 in 5 of the children cited had spent the previous night in a bus, train station, or vehicle
It is nearly impossible to give aid to transient families because they have no fixed address

Mental illness can cause mild to severe disturbances in thought and behaviors and can result in an inability to cope with life's ordinary demands and cause significant impact on family stability.
Children whose parents have a mental illness are at risk of developing social, emotional and/or behavioral problems.
Children sometimes blame themselves for their parents' difficulties, and experience anger, anxiety or guilt. They may become isolated from their peers and other community members.
Despite these challenges, many children of parents with mental illness are resilient and are able to thrive in spite of genetic and environmental vulnerability.
