It can involve a major change for people who have worked in full time and then suddenly stop working. It can affect their self-esteem and self concept with the time. People may lose of income when they have to live on the state pension. They may also lose their work friends and routine when they retire. Some elderly people move to their children and help them with their life and children. They have more time to spend with family and close friends.

Abuse is a serious social and cultural problem affecting everyone whether as a victim of abuse, a friend or confidant of an abused person looking for ways to be helpful, or simply as someone who is angered by inequality and wants to work for positive change. It is damaging to an individual's development because it can cause loss of self confidence, withdrawal symptoms, depression and anxiety. Abuse can also cause children to have difficulty forming relationships with people, which damages their social skills. ?? ?? ?? ?? 1 ...read more.
