Parents and caregivers who abuse their children, do not usually do so in a vacuum. There are normally some personal or situational factors that drive them to abuse the children who are in their care. Below are some of the reasons why parents/caregivers abuse their children.

They were abused or deprived as children
Lack of parenting knowledge
Expecting too much from children, and not understanding the developmental stages and needs of children
Financial problems and unemployment, which create frustration and stress, which are then transmitted to the child
Insecurity and immaturity, particularly among teenaged parents
Alcohol or drug problems, or other forms of addiction, such as gambling
Inability to manage children single handedly in the case of single parents
Their self-image is defective
They see physical punishment as a means of disciplining child
