What are possible signs a child may be the victim of abuse?

Abuse is typically physical, emotional, or sexual in nature and can include neglect. There are many possible signs that a child may be the victim of varying kinds of abuse, and many of these signs can also be signs that other things are wrong besides abuse. Using lists of possible warning signs should be treated with caution. For example, speaking of sexual abuse only, some of the signs can include:BedwettingEmotional/behavioral changesInappropriately touching other children or adultsKnowledge of sexual acts beyond one's age rangeUsing sexual language beyond one's age rangeBehaving sexually in public (ie, masturbating, undressing)Many of these things can be signs of other issues or problems completely unrelated to being sexually abused, so consulting an expert in the suspected variety of abuse can be helpful.While many signs of abuse, sexual and otherwise, can be signs of other things, you can consult a child advocacy center in your area or find a prevention organization specific to the variety of abuse you are concerned about.Googling, for example, "emotional child abuse advocacy" can find some organizations. For sexual abuse, Stop It Now! can be a great starting point, as can Darkness to Light, state-specific CASA (Coalition Against Sexual Assault/Abuse) organizations, and The Mama Bear Effect can be good resources.
