Abandoned child syndrome is a behavioral or psychological condition that results from the loss of one or both parents. Abandonment may be physical (the parent is not present in the child's life) or emotional (the parent withholds affection, nurturing, or stimulation)

Symptoms may be physical and/or mental, and may extend into adulthood and perhaps throughout a person's life.

    * Alienation from the environment - withdrawal from social activities, resistance towards others.

    * Guilt - the child believes that he/she did something wrong that caused the abandonment (often associated with depression)

    * Fear and uncertainty - clinginess, insecurities 

    * Sleep and eating disorders - malnutrition, starvation, disturbed sleep, nightmares

    * Physical ailments - fatigue, depression, lack of energy and creativity, anger, grief
