Joe Torre: My fear for many children during the Covid-19 pandemic

( CNN) When I was a young son, I evidenced unrelenting verbal abuse and determined the results of the physical mischief imposed on my mother, Margaret. The perpetrator was not some stranger, but my father, a New York City cop. The psychological and physical ache she suffered disfigured their own lives, and mine, too.

There were ages that I would come home from school — one region I experienced succour — and accompany my dad’s car in the driveway and top directly to a neighbor’s house instead. Or I was able to escape by getting outside, and playing baseball, video games I loved and fortunately, for me, outdid at, thanks to sciences that moved me from the ball fields of Brooklyn to the major leagues.
With the Covid-1 9 virus now consuming our lives and putting so many in harm’s way, I think back to my early life, and to the young children like me who witnessed domestic violence in their homes. As more districts are making reasonable and necessary measures to keep people inside, “stay at home” will not always translate to “safe at home” in numerous households across the country.
Survivors of family violence and child abuse can no longer rely on going to work or institution as a remission from the dangers they face at home. Safety means that is generally succeed under normal circumstances were also being tightened. Existing savagery and abuse at home are being exacerbated by high levels of stress. Children can’t reach for help because they can’t talk in front of an abusive mother. Without institution, there may not be anyone to “notice” clues of abuse and neglect and happen appropriately. An increase in runaway teens, who leave their violent homes, could to be translated into other perils, including drug abuse, trafficking and homelessness. Students seeing suicide may not know where to reach out for help.
