The children of our nation are precious and they are, the future of our world; therefore, we have to learn to take care of them and educate them very well, so that they can handle the charge, which the generation before them, will one day give them.
In today’s article, we are going to talk about child abuse, which goes unnoticed, because we are not really paying attention, to our children.
When a parent or caregiver, whether through action or failing to act, causes a child to be injured or the child ends up dead, this is known as child abuse.
Emotional harm and risk of serious harm to a child, is also considered a form of child abuse.
In the United States of America, there are three million reports of child abuse made, and these reports are in many forms of child maltreatment, including neglect, physical abuse, sexual abuse, exploitation and emotional abuse.
Any cultural, ethnic or income group, can have a widespread problem, of child abuse.
One of the most difficult parts of child abuse, is the fact that the child, does not show symptoms of child abuse; therefore, it is often difficult to recognize, when a child is going through abuse at their home.
One of the reasons a child does not say anything about an abuser, is because the child is afraid of their abusers.
Children believe that no one will believe them, so they don’t see a point in accusing their abusers.
Child abusers are usually people who are close to the child, and want to protect the child; therefore, parents are not able to see the signs of child abuse with their child.
Children who have suffered from child abuse, often grow up to have problems in life as an adult.
Some of the problems a child, who has been abused, may manifest as an adult are: social isolation of families, alcohol and drug abuse, prostitution and mental disabilities or mental retardation.
Children who have suffered from child abuse, need help immediately, they should be taken to a professional who knows how to handle, these types of cases.
Steps should be taken immediately, to report child abuse, whatever the nature of the abuse.
When child abuse is not reported immediately, the chances of full recovery by the child, decreases.
Our society has a serious problem, because children suffer great emotional and physical damage, when they are being abused and they may become depressed.
Once people are depressed, they may become suicidal too, and become violent, as well as becoming runaways and a problem to society.
We don’t understand that the more we abuse our children, or allow our children to continuously be abused; the more we raise up, monsters.
The children we raise up to be monsters, due to child abuse, are a problem to us, because they will become a problem to society, when that child grows up to be an adult.
A safe childhood and a life free from violence, should be experienced, by our children, all over the world.
When we fail to provide our children a proper upbringing, we are teaching our children to destroy the world, we would leave behind for them.
When children are abused, they hate the society for the most part, and become a liability to society instead of an asset.
