Social campaign against emotional abuse in Ukraine

One of the most common type of child abuse experts consider the psychological (emotional) abuse. And professionals single out verbal abuse separately as a permanent source of trauma for children. How often parents lower child's self-esteem simply by words "stupid", "goof", "botcher". After some time such words undermine sole of a child, he or she starts to think about herself or himself "I'm bad", "I'm not smart", "Nobody can't like me"...
During March-September 2013 Child Well-Being Fund Ukraine conducts the campaign "Words hurt for life" under patronage of the Ministry of Social Policy of Ukraine. Earlier the campaign was conducted by Nobody's Children Foundation in Poland.
