You should contact Child Protective Services. 1-800-4-A-CHILD®

(1-800-422-4453)

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.

If it is disciplining children then it is generally the mother because she is the one who is either home raising the children or has responsibility of disciplining her children when she gets home from work. Often the mother will threaten the children with 'wait until your father gets home.' This threat is generally warranted when the children will not listen to her. If it is sexual abuse then the highest percentage is sexual abuse by the father, but there are a few cases where mothers can also sexually abuse. If it is physical abuse and not sexual abuse it is the mother that may abuse the child or children.

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.

Any form of spouse abuse is major, abuse is abuse and no one has any rite to abuse any one or anything.

Definitely not! No living thing should ever be abused. Just imagine how you would feel if you were abused. You would feel horrible. Animals can't even stand up for themselves as well as humans can, so DO NOT abuse animals. It is also against the law. One should never abuse any one or any thing.

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.

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.
