Abandonded child syndrome is the behavioural or psychological attributes that a child develops as a result of one or both parents disappearing from their lives. It is very similar in nature to posttraumatic stress disorder, and symptoms include:

Children tend to relieve the shocking event by way of games or play because the role of imagination is much greater for young people. Typically, abandoned children become increasingly quiet or aggressive, out or control, or hard to handle.

Many children suffering from abandoned child syndrome have left home of their own accord, or were forced out of their homes because the rejection, neglect, or abuse was so great.
