Child abuse comes in many forms, including sexual, physical, emotional, mental, and neglect. Anytime a child is subjected to physicallly, emotionally, or mentally harmful behavior, it is child abuse. It is also child abuse when a child's physical and emotional needs are not provided for. These in…clude proper food, shelter, clothing, medical care, affection, protection from others who are harming them (when the parent or guardian is aware of it). However, if the parent or guardian is aware of someone else abusing the child and they don't do anything to stop it, that makes them guilty of child abuse, too, by not protecting the child from their abuser; it comes under the form of abuse by neglect.

personally i was abused as a child. seek therapy. if you cant afford it get a sponsor. talk to someone about it you will feel way better about yourself. dont quit therapy. as you continue to sort out problems pieces of your life will fall into place. make sure to find someone you trust.
The child can be affraid of the gender of the abuser they can develop mental illnesses and so much more. They will go on their life thinking that they are inappropriate, or not as good as other people, not to mention the build up of anger. There is really no safe zone. I can recall some incidents w…hen a person I now know was sick, routinely doled out ( Knuckle Soup) in something essentially non-violent- a music class. I had no respect for that teacher. This was hazing ( no pun intended) of a hazy sort- as private instruction or practice was normative and There were no witnesses , say classmates- there might be members of the class practicing in other, semi-sound-proofed rooms- stop and think Knuckle soup for playing, say Jingle Bells incorrectly- is surely misguided.

You should ask your child about it. Tell him/her that its not their faults and try to get it out of them if their Mother/Father/Friend/Another person in the Family has hurt them physically or mentally.
some types of abuse are mental, physical, emotional, and verbal. none of these are good. they all hurt very bad.
Usually the parent is mental and often takes their stress out on the child, so I believe (in most cases) they enjoy it. :o
No. Absolutely not. If you are a child and are being abused, there is help available for you. I feel for you in your situation, I was also abused as a child and I understand the pain. Please see the Related Links for some places to get help.
Anyone who hits, hurts physically, emotionally or sexually abuses a child. Whether it is a sibling, parent, other relative or friend, or even a stranger causing the abuse. You should always report any abuse to someone you can trust, like a teacher, police officer or on one of the charity telephone l…ines that are set up for this. (MORE)
Mentally, emotionally, sexually, verbally, physically, and even legally if the system is used to abuse the child (eg visiting rights)
You don't. NEVER DO THAT'S THE STUPIDEST QUESTION IVE EVER HEARD U SICK INDIVIDUAL YOU SHOULD LOVE AND CHERISH YOUR CHILD AND SMOTHER THEM WITH KISSES AND HUGS ALL THE TIME!!!!!!!! -- Your duty as a parent is to love the child, and help them develop into the person they need to be not to abuse… them in any way.

it can do alot of things to a child like develope low self esteem, get really sick or worse...die.also not only hurts the child but also the people who love the child. stop child abuse!!!
There are evil people in this world. Some people won't accept that, but in order to be safe you have to except that there are bad people. So, evil people do evil things.
some abusers, don't really feel anything or even care about the other person. it does nothing to their life, or their relationships. but... other abusers, may feel guilty, or excited, or disapppointed with themselves. which could affect their lives, and the people around them. if they feel guilty,… they may hurt themselves or other people because of frustration. if they are excited they may do it again for pleasure. and if dissappointed they may start to grow relationships with people before they attack so the person is more likely to forgive them. so.. abuse could cause internal conflict in the abuser. (not saying abuse is right.) (MORE)
Well the term animal abuse getting better is kind of ambiguous, but i dont think any politician will be punished for supporting animal rights.
i am not sure but i know my dad was abused now sometimes he takes it out on me and his dad was abused so it is probably genes
They can both be bad.Its like chewing tobacco and smoking tabcco, They both cause cancer one just does it quicker and in a different part of the body.Death can occur from either abuse, physical abuse just causes it faster.
Mental/Emotional, Physical, and sexual abuse all have very negative effects on a person and it depends on how you personally are able to deal with the type of abuse. Nobody reacts the same to every situation.
the abuser goes to prison depending on how long and sever the abuse is The worst Punishment for a child abuser is guilt. I know first hand what is is like. Do I consider myself a child abuser, NO. My son Jason had an episode a few months back and I struck him in the face. A downstairs neighbor ha…d called the police about two minutes before I did this because of the loud tone that I had and was moving things around the apartment. She said I was throwing the kids (Jason and his little brother Johnny) into was and beating them. (She can see through walls). Anyways, the older one had tried to leave the house and after time and time of putting him in timeout and butt taps, i hit his face a couple times. 8( I was not doing anything but discipline I told myself. The police showed up and asked to see my children. I assured them that everything was fine and proceeded to the room where Jason had fallen asleep. They confirmed that everything was OK and that there would be no further issues. About 20 minutes later, My girlfriend, the mom, came home with my oldest son. She was quickly informed of the situation by the frantic neighbor and then came upstairs. I was questioned and told her that nothing had happened. She looked at the boys and nothing was out of place. She continued questioning and I lied still, fearing what might happen if she found out. About an hour later Jason woke up and that's when it showed up. there was a mark on his neck, his cheek was red, and he had a bruise on his ear. I couldn't stop apologizing to everyone for what I had done. I felt so awful about the state that I allowed myself to get into, that I turned myself into the police for a psychological evaluation. I was later arrested and charged with assault and battery and reckless endangerment of a minor, served 28 days in jail, and am no longer allowed to reside with my three sons. If DSS acknowledges that I have been to the house, they will take the boys away. I am a loving father who grew up without one. I do not hate my children, I want them to be orderly with respect and have a conscience that things are gone a certain way. I never meant to hurt him, but I did. And most of all , I hurt myself.

Child abuse in the long run has many bad emotional effects. Such effects as homosexuality, problems in relationships and problems dealing with relatively normal issues.
Because animals are defenseless and very literally do not have a voice to alert anyone of authority. Its the same as abusing a child. They kind of depend and look up to the abuser as their caretaker, food source, shelter source and "love." Its a lot harder for animals (and children alike) to escape …such a life. (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.
child abuse affects the child because it hurts their childhood. itmakes them depressed. some of them end up dying, or killingthemselves.
I believe, it should all be the same. Child abuse should be permanently prohibited anywhere and everywhere in the world. No one has a right to hit another human being. Regardless if you're the parent or not. Whoever it is, should NEVER abuse a child or/and any living person.
No. Child abuse has always existed but laws did not exist to make it illegal, and therefore trackable.
Yes, she was molested by by her cousin, her uncle, and a family friend, starting when she was nine years old.
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..

As of 2013, a rate of 12.2 children per 1,000 were victims ofabuse/neglect in Oklahoma, a 16.8% increase from 2012. In the early2000s, Oklahoma was reported to be in the top 5 states for worsechild abuse rates. However, they are reportedly doing better morerecently. In 2012, Oklahoma ranked 31 in a …"best to worst placesfor children to live" ranking of the states. Currently, it isconsidered in the top 10 best states for low child abuse/neglectrates. So I would say a few years ago, Oklahoma had much more childabuse (at least statistic-wise) than it does today. (MORE)
The sad truth is that the abusive person is almost always the abused child's parent, guardian, or friend. Often the child get the idea that he or she deserves to be abused and that the abuser is trying to help him/her. Luckily, therapy and foster or adoptive parents know how to help the healing proc…ess. Of course, before any healing can begin the child needs to be removed from danger immediately. (MORE)
Everything! These questions are like, asked by morons, and by seeing your question, I get it, you abuse a child, and you should be reported to the Police, thank you for reading this.
To serious abuse report them to the police, do not abuse them back it will get you nowhere. If you feel regret talk to a counselor
More than meets the eye. Many women abuse children. often there are (mothers) in name only who use their kids as whipping boys ( or girls) for their hated ex-spouse, boyfriend, etc. I heard from a woman who was once a security officer at a prison ( a prison guard, so to speak)- most of the women in …Hard Custory- that is, for serious crimes, are involved in some sort of form of Child abuse. Minor crimes like Shoplifting are often committed by females- but the heavy-duty stuff is usually child abuse. DRAGNET dramatized this in one case where the assault weapon making the welts on the victim's back turned out to be a length of electrical extension cord! It is one of the few Violent crimes routinely commited by women. (MORE)
Believe it or not NONE at the federal level, maybe there are some five-ten man squads on the F.B,I. but not to my knowledge. there is no Federal Child Abuse agency. Back when H.E.W. was under one roof ( and Mr. Califano had the Conn) it might have been more conceivable to have a federal agency direc…tly aimed against child abuse. There isn"t any- say, comparable to the FDA, EPA, FBI, etc. (MORE)
Initially, it affects only the child and the abuser, but in the long run it may affect any number of people.
The term abuse implies unjustified mistreatment; it would not be accurate to describe as abuse some parental discipline which was actually necessary due to the actions of the child being disciplined. But beyond that, let's say the question is, can parents be justified in treating their children hars…hly? And the answer is, yes, in some cases. Parents can be cruel and tyrannical, but children can also be irresponsible and destructive. There is no guarantee that in a conflict between parents and children it is always the parents who are to blame. Sometimes the parents are to blame, sometimes the children are to blame, and sometimes they are both to blame. I would have to look at specific circumstances to come up with some moral judgment about parents who are harshly disciplining their children.A bit more: If it's actual abuse, then no. A child cannot, and should not, be blamed for the actions of the parents - ever. If a child is descructive, the parents should never be "cruel and tyrannical"; this will only result in the child's behavior becoming even more destructive. When a child's behavior does become destructive and the parents can't control it through normal discipline (i.e. 'normal' spankings, time out, taking away privileges, etc.), then they need to seek professional help to rule out any physical or psychological disorders the child may have. If the child is found to have no disorders, the parents and the child need to go to counseling together to determine the cause of the child's behavior, and to learn how to deal with it in the most positive and productive way possible. Often, when parents are too strict or if they are overly critical of the child, or if they never show the child affection or praise, the child will become destructive and disorderly as an outlet for their feelings of rejection, feeling unloved, etc. And then the parents see it as a matter of a 'bad' child, and they will become abusive towards the child. And then the child becomes even more destructive and unruly, resulting in a vicious cycle, with the parents becoming even more abusive in their efforts to control the child.This doesn't necessarily make them bad parents, it sometimes just means they don't know what else to do. But it also doesn't necessarily make the child bad, either; it just means the child is crying out for love, attention, and help. And this is where counseling can pay off in huge rewards, for the child and the parents. They will learn what the child's needs are and, once the child's needs are met, the destructive behavior will begin to decrease. (MORE)
All western and Euproperan countries! what with young girls and boys abused by their own sick family members resulting in God forbidden and universal taboo Incest!
Animal and child abuse are issues to be taken very seriously. They both have different forms of abuse such as neglect and physical abuse. Both are happening all around the world, and many are trying to help those being abused. Please tell someone you trust if you know someone who is being abused or …you are being abused. (MORE)
If that parent doesn't abuse their children, then that is all we can expect. If they join groups which work to prevent or repair the effects of the abuse, then that is even better.
It depends on the nature of the disablement. Sadly, most of the abuse is not by parents but by peers- Kids have it seems l0l derisive nicknames for eyeglass wearers, On the other hand I cannot recall any Teachers poking fun of this condition. ( I have worn specs over 45 years) The same is true of ot…her handicaps. Typically shallow, bigots will ( hit) visible targets such as spectacles-for some odd reason hearing-impaired youth are not targeted- there is no slang expression like ( Four eyes , or Eight-Ball) for a hearing-impaired person- either child or adult. Folks with speech impediments are bucking for ( Donald Duck) it is really tragic that kids do most of the abusing here. Maybe deafness is rare among kids- but then, it doesn"t photograph. so it goes.

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)
Well first of all they shouldn't be abused because your just going to make them into a dangerous person that's not cool at all. And second, why even hit your child? There like a gift from god that you praised to have, right? And I think that parents should really think of other ways to make their ch…ild learn a lesson? DUH? UGH. come on you guys really? (MORE)

A child that has been effected by child abuse would either put in a orphanage to wait for an adopter or would be put into a foster home. most foster homes are temporally until the next family wants them
any. I would say the worse would be verbal. There are so many different kinds of abuse.
It"s like high pressure steam and an air compressor on the same piston rod, one drives the other and the pressures increase. Things can go over the RED Line very easily.
About 10%, or perhaps as many as 40%, of abusive parents were themselves physically abused as children, but most abused children do not grow up to be abusive parents.
Child abuse is a broad term and goes all the gamut from minor punitive sanctions that by the way, we would never inflict on an adult ( for example Knuckle Soup) which was widely practiced by some teachers. the teachers were crafty about weapons used so the penalty shot or swat would be painful but n…ot leave telltale scars, welts etc. still it was widely used. Imagine a traffic cop doing the same- no way. In a related vein there is a widespread practice of having kids on gang-leashes, which resemble harnessing for draft animals- and then say 20-odd toddlers being marched about like draft animals. I don"t recall anything remotely like this as a kid, and it does not seem to be a punitive tactic, but one uniformly applied. Day Care centers do this all the time. then, bottom of the gutter, reckless assaults and even murders such as Jon Bent Ramsey and others, ALL CHILD ABUSE IS WRONG! (MORE)
Hitting, slapping, or spanking a child anywhere on their body is known as "Physical Child Abuse." But it depends on where you live, the reason you hit them, and how much force is applied. Slapping them on the buttocks is a different matter than slapping them in the face.
Sure, it"s the bully cycle. Doesn"t always turn out that way, victim may internalize the violence rather than retaliate or take it out on , say younger kids. If a child lives with violence as a constant background, he or she cannot help but be affected.
If it takes place at a hazardous job site- say a srip mine, it is also endangering the welfare of a minor. this is one reason why you don"t see many kids in risky Carnival stunts. one fall, bad for business!
