Family rejection of children

Visualization of narrower problems
In Germany there is a word for "child unfriendly" -- [kinderunfreundlich].
Family and community today fail to provide a receptive climate for the adolescent's needs. In human relationships, both inside and outside the family, there is little genuine loving. There is no easy, spontaneous show of warmth and tenderness; no cherished touch. Family members fear and mistrust closeness and any open show of emotion. The competitive strivings of the parents are communicated to the children and to the relationships with the children.

Parental rejection of a young boy may contribute to his becoming a violent criminal.
