Is it considered child abuse if a father allows his 15-year-old daughter to drive alone at night and she is stopped by the police?
I don't think this is a form of child abuse but it is an act of stupidity if the father knowingly allowed his child to drive without a licensed driver. But, if the girl had said that she and an older friend who had a license were driving together somewhere then it is not the father's fault but her own. No, it would not be legally defined as child abuse, but other charges could be brought against the minor and a parent who knowingly allowed the action.

Answer . \nat 17 in most states they wont look for you unless you get into trouble after you ran away, or if you are in troble and say missed a court date... Other than that the police arent going to do much about it, im not sure if its legal for a 17 yr old to leave or not in arizona, i know in …some states it is, but guaranteed its either 17 or 18. Answer . \nThe age of majority in most states including Arizona is 18. Alabama and Nebraska it is 19, Mississippi and Pennsylvania it is 21. What actions the authorities take concerning an underage person leaving the family home depends upon what actions the parents or legal guardian take and how aggressively the state's age of majority law is enforced.

Answer . \nShe can possibly end up being a scandolous teen, or she could turn into a teen girl whose scared of all men. Either way is bad. The girl might run to boys her age thinking they will protect her and they might continuously take advantage of her. If you know a girl whose being aboused b…y her father you should really tell someone if your really her friend. (MORE)
Answer . \nNo.\n. \nChild support is an active order of the court and the obligated parent should not cease paying as ordered regardless of the change of circumstances. \n. \nTo do so would leave the obligated parent in a position to be charged with contempt of a standing court order and subje…ct to penalties including the possibility of incarceration.

If you pick up your daughter from work a few nights a week is this considered driving to and from work?
Depending on what state your in. I held insurance license in Texas for auto and even if you drove a few nites a week it is still considered traveling to and from work and you will be charged the higher rate. Even if you take the train and or bus and you drive to the commute station most insurance co…mpanies will still charge you the higher rate because you drive to the station everyday, although you take another mode of transportation to/from work. So if you don't want the higher rate then don't' mention it. Other companies say it has to be over 3 days a week. Depending on your state and company you will have to check and see. (MORE)
Sexual abuse is most common. This is called rapture (rape) or forced sex. Beating, slapping, and hitting is also apart of rape. Sometimes killing or murder is taken afterwards. Or sometimes it is just abuse or murder. People who rape are called rapists, sex offenders, petifiles and so on.
The best way to stop child abuse is to be informed about it, and to get help for anyone you know who is a part of it; There is help out there, and no one deserves to be stuck with the consquences of the situation the sooner help is given the better. Knowledge is a definte key thing in helping, and p…reventing though... Both the abuser and the abused need someones help in most, if not all cases. (MORE)
Yes they do. Most often they will bring in a case worker they work with on an everyday basis.
How do you stop an abusive situation at home between a father and a daughter the father is abusive and the daughter is trapped How do you free yourself and start living again.?
Now this depends upon your age. If you are school-age, then you may start with a peer councilor at school. A teacher that you trust. Call the child abuse hotline and make an "anonymous" report. No one will ask the name of the caller if you don't want to give it. Just tell them you suspect abuse at a… certain address. A social worker will do an investigation. Be honest, they can't help you if you don't ask for it.. If you are an adult, this is important .... I am in exactly the same position. My father's abusive, controlling, and aggressive behavior has alienated him from all family. He has no friends, and he never has had any friends. He loves to push people into arguments. But that's not all he pushes. He is physically and verbally abusive. I've been the only one who has stuck with him through the years -- fifty to be exact. He's now 80 years old, and his behavior simply is worsening.. I will tell you what I've finally come to admit -- he's not going to change, remove him from your life, and begin living for yourself. I'm in that process now, and it is very hard. But don't spend as much time ruining your life as I have ... end it now and begin living for yourself, your wife, and your children.. I can honestly say that my abusive father ruined my childhood, and I have allowed him to ruin my adulthood as well. I just kept thinking that, as he aged, he would mellow out and become that good father to the good daughter that I have been. Unfortunately, I see that will never happen.. So, I'm ending my relationship with my father ... I am saying no to his hittiing, pushing, shoving, punching, name-calling, stomping, insults, sarcasm, and throwing things. It will be over soon, and I will be spending the rest of my life healing and wishing I had acted sooner.. Don't wait any longer ... take a stand now, get him out of your life, start healing, and begin your life with freedom. (MORE)
There are currently no laws in California that dictates what age achild has to be to be left home alone all night. It is up to theparents to decide that.
The age of majority is 18. Until then, the person responsible for them can report them as a runaway.
The legal definition of child abuse can be complex and is determined by state law. Many states have included forms of "emotional abuse" under their definitions of child abuse, so you can imagine how tricky that interpretation can be. Note also the difficulty state legislatures have had in respecting… religious practices that rely on prayer or other alternatives to traditional medicine, particularly when the subject of the alternative approach is a sick child. For a more definitive answer to your question, find your state's statutes on the internet and do a search using the terms child abuse or neglect. (MORE)
It depends on the result of the action. If the child is injured as a result or suffers severe pain, then yes.
You mostly likely don't, because you can't. Your daughter gets to pick her own relationships, and she gets to do so in as stupid a fashion as she chooses. You may be able to help her if she decides to leave the abusive relationship and get to a safer space, but this is a decision she has to make on …her own. (MORE)
Your daughters father was paying child support for 8 years then in July he stopped paying and no one knows where he moved to not even child support what do you do?
what do I do if my child's father is no where to be found what do I do if my child's father is no where to be found
You have not given enough information about your situation foranyone to be able to even provide their opinion. Abusiverelationships are not identical, and the abuse can be done by themother, the father, or both, or brothers, sisters, other relatives,even unrelated individuals in the household. Do no…t rely on thestereotypes to educate you about who the abusive one is. Womenoften abuse in different ways to men, but it is not uncommon forthem to resort to violence. (MORE)
It may be reduced but the cold fact is that it will never be stoped altogether. Abusive relationships of all sorts go back into history as far as you would like to go. As amateur of fact we don't have to go far past our own graveyards to see the victims if these relation ships by looking at the age …of children that died during child birth. (Married children I might add) it is simply a matter of what type of abuse is fashionable at the time. The only way abuse of all kinds will be stoped is to give every one on earth a frontal lobotomy. Sexual abuse, psychological, and the physical abuse of slavery are on the increase world wide as a result of globalisation. Small pockets of society may be fighting it but they are in the minority. The Moslem religions prophet Mohammad openly first married a 6 year old and consummated the marriage when she was 9 years old. You could say this was a long time ago but the same practice is still being encouraged today. You don't have to go back far in the Christian fraternity to see the same sort of thinking. Child abuse will be stoped when there is no more sex drive.. report people, dont be a by stander (MORE)
Actually, Child abuse has been around for ever and always will. But there are laws against it now if that's what you mean.
Actually it doesnt matter if she has a baby, in the judges eyes that has nothing to do with what you are suppose to be paying for her..if she is employed and is supporting herself it can be lowered but cant be stopped because she is still under 18 and you have to pay for her needs still, but it stop…s at 18, BUT if she graduates and plans on attending college then you still have to pay child support to help pay for tuition and other fees until she graduates! (MORE)
yes she can because she had to suffer the pain she was in and her dad had no rights to put his hands her in a sexual way. Her dad is supposed to love her and only keep his hands on his wife.
yes, you can call some help lines that are able to help you through some things and overcome your fears its not ok to abuse or to be abused call 0800 its not ok. im sure they can help you through things
Because it leaves the child with physical and psychological scars that can forever hinder their happiness in life. It's not fair that someone should take a child's happiness away and leave them confused, doubtful, hurt, and remorseful for the rest of their life.
If the kids are aggressive and they're the type to fight back andif you do it for the wrong reasons and if they have a fiery, flyoff the handle temperament then heck to the frickin yeah it is, ifyou want to end up pushing your child farther and farther away fromyou and if you want your child to end …up hating you so much thatshe and/or he decide to leave you when they hit a young age like15, 16 or maybe 17 and some kids might deicide to call the copsa.k.a. the police and you end up losing your job and if you thinkits hard to get a job now when you start a police record its twiceas hard to get a job at that point so all you intense parents thinkabout it like this and you might want to think about it twicebefore you decide to do a "certain something" you might regret.

It depends on the amount of time they are left alone. If the child has all necesities then I would say, no, it is not abuse.. A: . A 17-year-old is no longer a child so it is not child abuse. They should be getting a job or going to higher education.
Child abuse is NOT allowed and is NOT legal. If you are being harmed by an adult in your home, PLEASE tell a responsible adult, such as a teacher or police officer.
Probably not. If they are at least 16 maybe they could be. But any younger isn't too safe. At least if it's overnight. edit: but i think that if they are 14 it's okay even thirteen is okay but under 12 is not okay well yeha i do that to my kids all the time but that's cause i work. edit: we…ll i don't think it's good to leave your kids overnight when they're 13 or 14, maybe 15 is fine but not even. But it really depends on how mature the kid is and the situation. (MORE)
I am not an expert but anyone can help stop child abuse. If you are 14 and being abused or know someone who is, you should definitely report it. You can tell anyone, a teacher, a parent of a friend, a relative. No one deserves to be hurt like that no matter what they did. Especially not a child! Ple…ase report to someone if you know that someone is in a bad situation. (MORE)
Call the police, put the kid in a car home, or run away. I would get a court injunction filed against the father, which doesn't allow him to come within a certain distance from the child without being arrested. dump his sorry A** and run your guys's HAPPY butts away
Child abuse should be stopped because children have no control over their own lives and their little voices are often never heard, so it is up to parents or even adults without children to come down heavily on those that make an innocent child's life miserable by physical or cruel verbal abuse.
If child abuse is suspected, you should report it to help the child! You can call your local Child Protective Services(CPS). The call is confidential.
If you mean that he abused her in the past, she should certainly be with another adult if she visits him, and the other adult should keep a close eye on her during the entire visit.
Why does the court allow a father to have visitation rights with a child that is being abused by him?
You have not provided any detail whatsoever to enable anyone to make an honest attempt at an answer to your query, either about the nature of the abuse or what actions were taken by the authorities. Here are some facts that may result in the abuse not being taken seriously: . The care and reso…urces devoted to child abuse claims in your jurisdictions. They vary widely across the United States. Resources, or lack thereof, of the investigating authority and of course, the desire to investigate fully may affect the outcome of a complaint. . The emotional reactions of the authority to whom the abuse is reported can affect their reasoning and judgment. The personal biases of the people involved in deciding how the case will be investigated and determining the outcome of the case. . The lack of substantial evidence. Statistics on child abuse are controversial because there is so much abuse that is never reported. Statistics are human creations, can be easily manipulated to suit the user and often are. All statistics and reports of prevalence of child abuse are disputed by some experts. Huge numbers of children who are abused are never in a position to have the abuse reported. It is often kept secret by the family for fear of publicity. It is often kept secret by the child for fear of harm if they report it. Lastly, only recently has child abuse come to be viewed as a major social problem at all. Child abuse occurs across all cultural, gender, racial, economic and social lines. It is committed most often by the caretaker of the child. People who abuse their children lack the necessary abilities needed to parent properly, to nurture and to form a consistent, stable relationship with their child. Children with special needs are sometimes at more risk because of the stress of parenting the child and the lack of understanding by the parent that the child's behavior is caused by their disability. People who abuse are frequently self-centered, lack coping skills and have little understanding of normal child development. They often have unreasonably high expectations of what constitutes normal behavior in a child. They have anger management issues. They are people who put other things first ahead of their child's needs: work, money, sleep, their own entertainment, their partner, their friends, their own needs. They frequently have substance abuse problems. (MORE)
yes of course. you are intentionally trying to hurt your child. but just in a mental way. i say it's worse then physical.
Certainly not! That is much too young for them to be left alone. Most states say that it is considered acceptable to leave a 12 -13 year old for a couple of hours during the DAY.
Is it a crime if your four year old step daughter walks in and sees you and your wife having sex her father claims it is Child Abuse or Endangerment?
No. Child abuse is sexually exploiting the child, that is not happening here - she is just being exposed to it. Because she was not forced to watch it happen, she just walked in, it is not a case of either child abuse or endangerment.
of course because then the 16 yr old will be to shy to talk especcially if her/his mother abused her/him!
I personally think there is a way to stop child abuse..but the thing is is its reallly up to tht person like they need to talk to somebody about it like a pastor or a friend or just somebody they can trust an tht could help them but tha only think tht can stop it is a miracle from god..and a talk wi…th someone tht can help them...an i hope tht kind of answered ur question for you..

Parental favoritism is considered child abuse because it leaves lasting psychological scars on a child/teenager that carry with them through to their adult lives. Most children who were not the favored one suffer from feelings of inadequacy, depression, suicidal ideation, and just a general sense of… not being able to live up to anyone's standards. It can also destroy sibling bonds as the child who wasn't favored ends up resenting the child who was, and there is also a lot of anger and resentment towards the parents as well as in life. Just like other forms of abuse, it can actually cycle and go through generations as the abused child tries to work through their own feelings and goes as far as to project it on to their own children or even co-workers, friends, and other people outside the family dynamic. Unfavored children also tend to be more negative in life and VERY critical of others. (MORE)
This depends on how old your daughter is, which state you are in and the reason your daughter is being interviewed. Some states don't permit a juvenile to be questioned unless a parent or guardian is present. There are exceptions to this, as in when the parent or guardian is a suspect in a crime aga…inst the juvenile; even then, there may be a requirement to have an adult advocate present to protect the juvenile's interests. Other states have no such requirements. If your daughter is no longer a juvenile, you probably have no say as to whether she is questioned at all. (MORE)

To stop an abusive Father--Daughter relationship depends on the age of the daughter. If she is a child, you call HRS and keep calling. The only hope is to get hold of the idiot's boss there and get her out of that situation. If she is a teen, she can take some steps herself. There are guidance cou…ncilors she can discuss her problems with, at least in the United States. There are steps she can take to escape from that relationship. She can follow legal steps. If she is an adult, there are support groups. Many women have been abused by their fathers and are still being abused by their fathers. It does not end even if their fathers have died. Support groups with other women have helped a number of them get through this hell. Just because skin has grown over deep wounds does not mean the wounds have healed. The support groups can help in the healing process. (MORE)
yes In some cases it could be classed as verbal abuse though it would have to be particularly persistent and voluble to be classed as abuse. Many countries do not have specific legislation against it.
They need only to have reasonable SUSPICION in order to detain you on the street. ANSWER They may also stop you at checkpoints without reasonable suspicion. An example would be a sobriety checkpoint where everyone is stopped or a random pattern such as every other vehicle, or every 3rd vehicle is …stopped. (MORE)
You should stop child abuse because it is scaring the kids. Think of how scared they are of their own parent's. Think about how much pain they are in because of child abuser's, imagine being in her or his footsteps for just a day, i would imagine that you wouldn't like it. Treat others the way you w…ant to be treated. If you are abusive i would just stop taking your anger on the child. And just try to be a normal person. If you aren't an abuser than than a way you can stop child abuse is fight against it. Put signs on doors, hand out papers to everyone you see. And donate to children that have been abused. Another way is if you notice that some one else's kid or just a kid has a lot of bruises and scars on them, you should talk to their parent's. And after you leave come back the next day and see if the child has any new scars, because the parents or guardian can get mad if you figure out that they were abusive. (MORE)
Is an 18 year old with a child considered emancipated in Utah and when can the father stop paying child support?
Yes she is emancipated by turning 18 and child support is paid until she is 21 if she goes to college.
Yes. The non-custodial parent pay child support to the custodial parent regardless whether he is with her every night or not. The money is for providing for the child so as long as he does that you have to. Keeping the money is not helping the child. If you wish to change custody or child support, y…ou have to go back to court. A 16yo is after all old enough to stay home by herself and most 16yo looks forward to get their parents out of the house. It's a part of growing up. (MORE)
There's no age limit. It depends on the child's personality andmaturity. She might want to share a bedroom with her parents untilshe's 12 due to nightmares, phobias, fears, etc.

Not abuse, depending whether he emotionally or physically harmsyou. It is just called homophobia. The best thing to do is give himtime.
