The psychological trauma that affects children because of war leaves them scarred for life. Children often witness horrendous acts of violence, including the death of a parent or the rape of a mother or sister.
The psychological trauma in children manifests in many ways, including children who are withdrawn, children who can no longer speak, children who can't trust adults or authority, or children who develop illusions of revenge for their family. War can indoctrinate an entire generation with war and violence, making it difficult to break the cycle.
