Child Recruitment During Armed Conflict

Militant armies are the most important part to sustain from a war, most of them are adult with range from 18 to 35 years old. Being an army is not easy even for the trained person, they have to be prepare themselves from their inner heart. There are so much stress will happen from the beginning join the army until they retired. The retired army that ever experienced war before most likely have PTSD. 

PTSD is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, the symptoms may include nightmares or flashbacks, avoidance of situation that bring back the trauma, heightened reactivity to stimuli, anxiety or depressed mood. This stress usually happen when they experienced a serious life threatens like they will die on that day. So when they're get retired most of the retirees will experiences it.

Then, Can you imagine a kid suffers this stress? Being shadowed by death everyday? How can they survived? How will they lived for the next day? 

Recruiting a child to reinforce the army's strength is one of the part of child abuse, even thought they or those kids that recruited enjoy it.  

Invitation for recruitment will reach its peak when the militant adult having a bad times and they need reinforcement for their military flees as soon as possible.

As a person that never experienced or having a war, i think they have to stop this abuse and set the kids free to the shelter. Most of the kids forced to became a soldier at their young age by millitant.

Where is the parent's role on this case? 

Their parent allowed cause they're involved either directly or not. That makes them have to accept the militant recruitment for their child, because they have considered their present situation, and how they will survived for the next day or the next 12 hours or the next 3 hours. That's  why they gave their child especially their son. 

We know that child is the future for the family and the country, they will replace our place in future to lead and run the country, so if most of them died during the conflict ? Who will do that job ? old man can do that anymore, they even can't see a word clearly. So if  military child recruitment increased, the chances for the country to survive in future will decrease significantly, because the absence of the future generations. 

Author not saying that he's support the war, but this recruitment has to stop. The militant has to strengthen their forces, so they're not using child for reinforcement anymore. The other option is they have to train the kids before involve to the war, to increase the likelihood of survival during war.

The most important things are never let your child to join the military before they reach the proper age, and most importantly they have to stop this conflict. This conflict cause so much problem from economy, resources, and environment sides.
