What should one do about abuse by a father?
You should contact Child Protective Services. 1-800-4-A-CHILD®
They will probably send a social worker who is a caring, intelligent person who can and will help you. As much as you might hesitate to involve authorities in a family matter, this is important. Take him/her out of the situation as soon as possible. If you are the victim, go to someone you know that will hide or protect you until you are safe. Your teacher might have a family member that could keep you until your statements are proven. You are believed FIRST, not the father. If you are the mother of this victim, do not claim you have no where to go. Your child needs to leave the situation. Do not have the child look at you later with hate because you didn't protect them. There are jobs and homes to have a brand new start. This is not about you.
You must make a report to the proper authorities. This may be done by telephone, by letter, by e-mail or in person. A report can be made anonymously, but divulging who you are and the relationship you have with the child or youth will aid in the investigation. When a report of abuse and neglect is made, child abuse intervention dictates that the person or organization making the report must act in a way that:
* protects the child or youth
* protects other children/youth who may be involved respects the rights of alleged abuser; keeps information confidential; cooperates with Child Protection Agencies and possibly police. Child abuse intervention is everyone's responsibility, ethically, morally, and legally.
If you live in Canada, check your local phone book in the provincial blue pages under Children & Family Services for the number to call in your area to report child abuse and neglect.
Does a child have to visit a parent if their is proof of verbal physical and emotion abuse and documentation that abuse has been going on if they are not 16 years old in the state of Georgia?
Of course, as long as the father has not been deemed unfit by the court. The process should already be underway if the baby has been abused by the mother. The father should already be in contact with Child Protective Services in order to protect his child and document the abuse. He needs to file a petition for full custody. Of course, as long as the father has not been deemed unfit by the court…
The fact of being a pathological liar is not child abuse. However, if the lying results in emotional upset and stress for the child then that should be brought to court to try to modify the visitations with the father. For example, if the father repeatedly fails to show up after promising the child a visit that would expose the child to unnecessary stress and disappointment.
If your father verbally abuses you, you need to get help. Verbal abuse is one of the hardest abuses to prove because their is no bruise or mark. So if someone was abusing me I would find a voice recorder and record some of it and go to the nearest police station or hospital, and they will take care of it.
Is it abuse if a girl has been continually slapped in the face by her father over a period of 7 years sometimes while he is intoxicated?
Should one see their daughter every other weekend even when the mother and her family threatens and bashes the father in front of ones daughter?
Let me make sure I have this right, so I don't answer the wrong question. I'll use fake names. :) Should Suzie see her daughter Allie every other weekend, even though Suzie threatens and bashes Allie's father Luke. If that's what you were asking, then no, I don't think she should see her daughter that often. I think the priviledge should be taken away until the mother learns to control herself. Then she should be…
if one suspects nursing home abuse they should report it to their long term care ombudsman. They will thoroughly investigate any claims made and follow safe-guarding procedures to ensure the safety of residents. If one believes there is an immediate threat of abuse that could result in physical harm or death of a person one should call 999 immediately.
Yes. Her mother received the brunt of the abuse (both verbal and physical), but when Christina Aguilera's father, Fausto, began to abuse the children as well, Aguilera's mother filed for divorce. Songs about the abuse can be heard on Stripped on "I'm OK" and Back to Basics on "Oh Mother." Hope this helps! ;)
What does Christ imply in Mathew 23 when he says call no one father for you have but one father in heaven?

He is referring to God, and implies that nobody else should use the title "father". He is referring to God, and implies that nobody else should use the title "father".
Child abuse can break apart a family if the source of the abuse is either the father, the mother or anyone who lives at home. A family is supposed to be a tightly knit unit of the society. If a member abuses one member and this came out in the open, the family is broken down to pieces because trust, which is a basic factor in the relationship breaks down, too. Trust is something every…
If one is in charge of the welfare of an animal one should see to it that the animal has a place to live that is reasonably comfortable that the animal is fed properly and that it receives medical attention when required it is abuse if these guide lines are not followed. when a human has contact with an animal and knowingly causes it harm for any reason this is also abuse.
How can one leave their mentally abusive spouse and not have to worry about losing their 2 kids to the spouse?
If you can prove that he's been mentally abusive (statements and letters from friends or family would help) then it would be up to a judge to decide whether the children should be subjected to a mentally abusive father. By the way, there are some who believe that allowing children to witness the physical or mental abuse between parents is actually a form of child abuse.
You have not given enough information about your situation for anyone to be able to even provide their opinion. Abusive relationships are not identical, and the abuse can be done by the mother, the father, or both, or brothers, sisters, other relatives, even unrelated individuals in the household. Do not rely on the stereotypes to educate you about who the abusive one is. Women often abuse in different ways to men, but it is not…
