The Perseverance of Thiago's parents.

According to the Peruvian newspaper Gestión, complaints of family and gender violence increased by 130% during the quarantine period decreed to contain the arrival of the COVID 19 pandemic. At Wasi Esperanza we can state that the problem of family violence is recurrent among our beneficiaries and that at the national level it is a very worrying issue that lacks proper monitoring.
Family violence is a very complex issue that needs a comprehensive look and a transversal intervention, we know that it is not possible to have results in the short term. For this reason, Wasi Esperanza has designed a multidisciplinary intervention plan between the Psychology and Social Care services.
Family support is very important to ensure that children develop their capacities and abilities, not only because they have to reinforce the work of the therapists at home, but also because they must provide a safe environment for the child to grow up.
Despite how harmful family violence is, perseverance and determination can improve the situation for children, as is the case with Tiago.
Tiago's family is made up of very young parents who abused each other in many ways, however, they did everything possible to find a diagnosis for their child since his psychomotor and cognitive development did not go hand in hand with his age.
In Ayacucho there is no specialized center in the care of children with autism, but, it began to suspect that Tiago could be within the autism spectrum, he began with physical therapies to stimulate their motor development, at the same time, the parents received individual and group care in a psychological office. They are currently separated, but despite all the problems they had as a couple, they continued to take Tiago to his therapies.
Today Thiago is 05 years old and lives with his mother, recently his communication has begun to include words, to show signs of affection to his mother and to follow directions. His parents have worked with him since he was two years old and every time there was a crisis they noticed how little Thiago would regress or start with unwanted behaviors.
Thiago's mother reinforces the sessions that she does with the psychologist every day. On an emotional level, the mother is calmer and is reflected in the child's improvements, she knows that it is not a linear process but the emotional support that she has in the psychological office strengthens her to face future challenges.
Like Thiago's family, there are many others who face similar situations and psychological support can be a turning point in finding a healthy way out, but the first step is to recognize that there is a problem and have the desire to improve.
