It is very painful for a girl child to suffer abuse. There are various forms of abuse a girl can be a subjected to, that is emotional, physical and social abuse. I am going to talk about emotional abuse under the form of forced marriage.Child marriage is when a girl is married at a young age to someone who she does not want for various reasons. The reasons why children are going in marriages are poverty and lack of parental guidance. Parental guidance lacks when parents are divorced or when parents are working outside the country. The children are left with care giver .The care giver does not give the children proper guidance .That is why children are going in child marriages. Poverty is caused when the parents are not working. The children will think of getting married so that the parents get money .In a child marriage you are forced to have a baby at the wrong time. The children must be educated in schools, churches and at home so that they do not think of getting married. Parents should avoid getting divorced so that they will stay with their children.
