To raise awareness and awareness activities.
To raise awareness about the importance of emotional neglect, to embody and explain this abstract and invisible concept, to support the emotional empowerment and awareness of women and children in order to touch the future.
To ensure effective dissemination through collaborations.
We argue that the issue of Emotional Neglect in Childhood, which underlies the development of social, emotional and cognitive skills, should be made an integral part of the early childhood education process. For this purpose, we are working to reach more people in cooperation with government institutions, MEB, universities and NGOs.
To lead scientific studies.
When we examine the studies in the international arena, we saw that 78% of child maltreatment cases are neglect, 17% physical abuse, 9% sexual abuse, 8% psychological abuse. When we look at our country, although there is an increase in studies on child neglect and abuse, there are hardly any studies focusing on the issue of emotional neglect in childhood. Our aim is to lead more research and studies on this subject and to develop literature.
OUR TOPIC EMOTIONAL NEGLIGENCE IN CHILDHOOD
The child is the creature that needs the longest care, protection and love among all living things. The progress and development of a society is possible with the healthy physical, mental and social development of children who grow up in that society.
Creating a family environment where the emotional needs of the child are satisfied
It is a “right” as well as a requirement to reduce negative emotions. Children who do not have enough emotional support and who experience emotional hunger as a result are more likely to become selfish, demanding and uninterested adults (Dhall, 2008).
The Convention on the Rights of the Child, to which our country is a party, aiming to secure the basic conditions required for the healthy development of children and a happy start to life at the international level, was ratified by 197 member states of the United Nations on 20 November 1989.
States Parties shall make every effort to recognize the principle that parents bear joint responsibility for the upbringing and development of every child. Parents can support their children's development, show love and interest, give them the opportunity to experience different experiences, guide their child and accept him as a different individual; It is their responsibility to make appropriate guidance for their feelings, abilities and interests.
On the other hand, as a result of the rapid change in society, there are changes in the lives and roles of parents, traditional support systems are destroyed and parents may need professional support. Parents, who have such an important place in the child's life, need to develop their knowledge and skills in both parenting and child care and education.
The issue of emotional neglect should also attract attention as an issue that should raise awareness, inform and support positive communication for families, especially everyone who takes a primary role in the care of the child.
