Around what ages do kids get abused?
Children get abused from before birth (such as a person kicking or hitting a pregnant woman in the stomach, for instance) up to adulthood.
Kids are abused because people want to have power over somebody. They don't care how. kids get abused because like the one before they feel they need the power and because the may be involved in drugs and may have a drinking problem
sexually physically mentally emotionally
It is all about the abuser. Abusers are usually very self-focused. That is, they don't think anyone is as important as they are, and they become convinced that meeting their needs is more important than anything else. The "need" may be finding someone else to blame for the abuser's own failures and inadequacies, someone who can be punished so the abuser won't punish her/himself. The "need" may be sexual gratification, even though the abuser is… Read More
a lot of people die especially children. they can die for anything, especially babies because there fragile. also they can die of cat death.
I'm guessing your talking about Dave Pelzer's Mum. No, she abused David, and when he left, she started abusing his brother Richard, although not as badly as David. She didn't abuse all five of them though.
I should think so, unless they are being held by bribes and threats from the abuser. Many kids in the US suffer from mistreatment, but are too afraid to seek help. Some are bottling it up, hiding in their rooms to seek the only peace that they are allowed. Look around. Do you see one particular kid who always has bruises and cuts, and they don't say how? It may be they are being abused… Read More
yes, often and unfortunately abusers are victims of abuse themselves. yes, because they are so use to seeing it and going threw it.
A lot usually most because they are so scared that they wont tell a soul and hide the evidence
That depends on the form of the abuse. If he is sadistic - he gets gratification. If he is a control freak - control. If he is a narcissist - he avoids intimacy and secures narcissistic supply (some narcissistic love to be feared and hated). what it most likely looks to me is that he enjoys the control. That is his way of discipline and to know that the abusee will do nothing to stop… Read More
Yes, more often than women or men think. Most men are brought up not to hit women and stick to that practice so when a man is hit, slapped, shoved, scratched or has things thrown at him or she is verbally abusive he takes it because most men feel everything is revolved around women being abused and that women are the weaker sex. Men don't realize that there are programs out there to help them and that… Read More
I do understand how you are feeling because I was in an abusive marriage at one time. It started out as verbal abuse, then got physical. It took me 3 1/2 years to shake my head and realize I did nothing wrong and it was time to leave. We are in control of our own destiny and if we want freedom bad enough we can most certainly attain it. YOU DON'T HAVE TO PAY FOR… Read More
It is rarely a child's fault when they are abused. Often the abuser is the one with phsycological problems. They may have had abusive parents also, or they drink a lot and they need someone to take their anger out on. Sometimes an abusive parent will single out one child in particular. It is usually not anything they do, or something minor, like a bad grade, that will set off the abuse. Sometimes it is… Read More
Stand and fight mom! Stay where you are and walk into any Women's Abuse Center with your children and a counselor will see you and help you out. There are Transition Houses to go too where your husband will not find you or your children. There are programs there that will help you and you will also be given a counselor to sit with you in court (generally the children ... depending on their ages… Read More
A lot of times the abused can become abusers. But I've known people who have noticed their behavior and learned to control it. Not only that but a lot of times counseling will help with that.
By being abused themselves. How an abuser becomes abusiveThis is a question of nature vs. nurture. Although abusive behavior is passed on within families, it would seem that it is more about the family dynamics of both the parents and other family members than genetic. Within the family, if abusive behavior (verbal or physical abuse) is condoned, especially by blaming the victim, it will become an acceptable way to deal with emotions. An abused child… Read More
Judging by what I've heard, quite a few. Apparantley a child dies every three seconds in the USA because of abuse.
No it isnt. it can damage their health, like astma, coughing, maybe even rare diseases. Howeve it isnt child abuse. my farther, sister and brother all smoked the same time 10 years on from 12, im perfectly fine.
depends i was abused but every since i sayed i hate you they are a lot nicer
About four or five.
Anywhere from the child being born to teenage years.
When abused, a kid practices blocking out their pain. They use this learned technique to block out the pain they inflict on others as an abuser. A few other things are occurring during a child's abuse, like the desire to never be abused again, and the mental image of abusing the abuser.
Then you should call the police. No one should abuse your kids. and don't come near them again and don't let them have custody for your kids again. That's what you should do.

I'd be very surprised if kids aren't already sick of hearing about child abuse! Kids being abused probably feel like "all this talk" about child abuse isn't doing them a bit of good.
more than 300,000
I have worked in foster care for years, and unfortunately, many children still want a relationship with their abuser, especially if it is a close family member. Because of their deep desire to have a positive relationship, they often "fanatsize" that it was a one time occurrance or did not even happen at all. They can blame themselves instead of the abuser. The emotions and relationships are very complicated and it is not easily answered… Read More
Answer I have been abused by my husband and I have a wonderful support system. Although, we have been separated/divorced for almost 2 years now...I still think about going back and I'm not sure why. I think it has to do with the fact that I hope and wonder if he will change because I still do love him. My best advice to you is just to continue to "be there" for your friend/loved one… Read More
Yes! Yes! Yes! I am answering this from personal experience. I am a grown adult (in my 30s) who is also a single mom. My father has been abusive towards me my entire life (physically and emotionally). Sporadically I have stood up to him throughout my adult years and as a result of reading him the riot act or telling him off he and his mother have called and filed false CPS reports against me… Read More
Every year more than 3 million reports of child abuse are made in the United States involving more than 6 million children (a report can include multiple children). The United States has one of the worst records among industrialized nations - losing on average between four and seven children every day to child abuse and neglect.
so many reasons why somebody may make things up, maybe too hurt somebody, maybe for attention, obviously they want something or want someone to feel something for them, example .. Janet was accusing Alfred of rape .. Janet was just upset with Alfred for cheating on him and wanted revenge you need to look at why the person is saying this, do they have a grudge against the person they are accusing, obviously there is… Read More
YA! People don't want children to be abused. Wouldn't you want to get out of abuse?<><><>Agree. Where there is a TRUE situation of abuse or neglect, the courts may order children removed to a place of safety. PS- Child abuse is NOT that your parents would not buy you a Wii or a cell phone, or made you do your homework.
There are MANY ways to get involved in helping victims of child abuse (which I think is what you are asking). You can volunteer at local shelters or short term living facilities for abused children. You can volunteer at schools that hold child abuse workshops or group sessions for abused children. You can volunteer as a CASA if you SERIOUSLY want to be involved with the nitty gritty and sometimes nasty. A CASA is a… Read More
call local womens shelter, they will help you out alot
Answer If you are being abused you can recognise this because the abuser will go out of his/her way to make your life as miserable as possible. Nothing you will do will be good enough. There maybe constant fights over nothing and the worst of them all, is embarrassing you in public. No one deserves that kind of treatment so if that is what's happening to you, I'd look at moving on in life.
Because they're sick! They were often abused too, and they tend to be hurting.
I can only speak for myself. I was verbally and emotionally abused and it left me with years of low self-esteem and shyness to try to get over. After years of trying to build up my self-esteem, I still revert to feeling bad about myself, on occasions. I look back over my life and always wonder what it would have been like if my childhood would have been different. Would I still be married? How… Read More

Some parents grew up in abusive homes and abuse gets passed on from one generation to another. Some people abuse children for monetary reasons, such as kidnapping children and selling them or using them in the pornogrophy industry. For many, it is not how they get the nerve to abuse kids; it's either what they have learned, or they just do not have the ability to care and to love as other people do.
Mark McGwire did, but I'm not sure if he still does.
Yes some of them go ahead to thrive in school. But after getting help to overcome such emotions.
You remove everything that reminds you of the abuser, burn some of the stuff safely, they say that helps empower you. Dont have any contact with the abuser, even people that you know through them. Change your surroundings, color, scheme, etc. Stear clear of anyone that has similar attributes as the abuser. Know that you did not do anything to make this weak individual try to control you, they do so out of fear, their… Read More
AbuseMany people who abuse children were themselves abused. Sometimes, they just don't know any other way of handling child rearing. We do learn parenting skills from our parents. Other times it appears to be "payback", as the abuser is no longer small, scared and helpless, but now can be in charge.Often times the abuser has been abused by someone when they were young. they probably want to let their anger out.Though there are many explanations… Read More
we stop child abuse by... 1.doing something!
If you are being verbally and mentally abused can you go somewhere to get help if you are under the age of 16?
You should go talk to your school counselor and see if she knows someone but talk to her in confidence and ask her for somewhere you can go to get help and maybe she can help you The above is a good source, but you can also go to Mental Health for help. I had an anger problem in my teens (fought like a boy) and like you realized it was my problem and needed… Read More
Is it abuse when an abuser sees this or other webpages on abuse and gets a sarcastic tone to his voice as he reads the questions?
This is not particularly abuse or something to be labeled. The action just is really great evidence that he doesn't get the concept and has another agenda. He is talking AT you, not WITH you. No, that's not abuse, that's LOVE. Re-read what you wrote -- "Is it abuse when an ABUSER ......" You already know the answer to this one. He's probably an abuser even when he sleeps. ~ T Stalkers and the Borderline… Read More
Not all children do that but some sadly do end up abusing their children.
* Not all of them. * The percentages are getting higher, but, there are no specific percentages given because many children who are abused can't report it or, relatives or neighbors don't report the abuse if they know it is going on. Some children go through abuse until they get the chance to run away from home so it's not documented and thus, the true percentage is never correct.
Is telling a teenager to get off their lazy buttocks and do what they are supposed to do considered abuse?
no. it is frowned on as a negative comment and may cause rebellion. many child psycologists believe that you should use positive reinforcments but they do agree that it sometimes does not work. you are allowed to use force, intimidation, and threats even manhandling as long as you do not leave a mark. here's what you do. Instead of yelling and cussing at them which will NOT get there attention. Take something away. my husband… Read More
