Holding Hands

Hands that should comfort may be regarded as a dangerous extension.  It takes a long time, much patience for a person battered by hands as a child to trust again, and most likely they never will heal.

If you say to a child, "Give me your hand" or "Lets hold hands" she or he may instantly pull away as if burned or violently reject the idea.  Children traumatized by hands, may not view the offer as friendly, if in their past someones offered hand dealt pain.  It depends on the age of the child and their vocabulary, along with their ability to strings words together to form complex sentences just how much they can tell you as to why they fear an offered hand..

Remember, the foundation for all violence begins at birth through 13 years old.  Hands that are supposed to love and comfort may be instruments of harm to many children.  When family, friends or acquaintances pull away, it may not be you they resist but possibly a strong memory from their past.  If a child physically reacts (ducks from hand movement close to their face) it is a strong indication that the child was hit frequently enough for this to be a natural reaction.  The dodge or duck response is carried over into adulthood and can be very noticeable when there is any rapid or unexpected movement is close to the face.
