Suppose a primary caretaker has a negative attitude toward their child, it increases the risk that their child will grow up hostile towards others. Aggresion is not the only factor toward others that result from child abuse; a large amount of children raised by abusive parents also harm themselves. The reason for this negative behavior is because the children don’t learn appropriate techniques for handling life’s disappointments. Without coping skills, you’re much too likely to act inappropriately than if you have developed more reasonable approaches. The effect of poor parenting as reported by Dr. Geoffrey Dahmer in, “The Bully Papers,” is that everyone gets the child they deserve.
