These types of insecurities will severely affect the children and their by lead to mental health issues to them. Both internal as well as external issues will affect them through mental stress, lack of confidence, feeling insecure etc. when a child has been sexually affected, the stakeholders and parents, with in the external as well as internal environmental will starts behaving in an indifferent manner that may induce a feeling in the mind of the child that, I have been affected with something and I am not the same person as before.
