Child abuse is one of the most serious social problems and dramatic damage to our society. It is true the child abuse can be defined like social problem that manifests itself in all social strata; this is due to the lack of concern of our institutions by failing to ensure respect for children's rights. The child abuse it’s not good for them because many children has the same problem because their parents have to stop the violence or the abused it can be affect those children can have trauma and psychologically because their parents are guilty cause the children are abuse. At this point the child abuse is happening in everywhere that’s why now we have to protect our children and care about them. They need love and everything that they didn’t
There are many things in today’s society that go overlooked, and child abuse is one of those things. Child abuse, in my opinion is any mistreatment or neglect of a child that results in non-accidental injury, harm or death that cannot be logically explained. Some children go weeks, months, years being abused. They have no way out and are scared to confide in the people around them for
They will also lack people to confide in or go to for advice Child neglect, often overlooked, is the most common form of child maltreatment. This has a major impact on a child’s development. Most perpetrators of child neglect are the parents themselves. The physical, emotional and cognitive developmental impacts from child neglect in any childhood can be detrimental as the effects from neglect can carry on into adulthood. By the time a child reaches the age of six if he / she has experienced neglect his/her chances of having overall poor physical health increases .Infants can develop poor physical health if neglect starts even before the child I born.
This physical trauma has scarred many, as well as creating distraught in the children’s minds of growing up not knowing their family nor true identity (Burns 2008). However, it is not just the individual child who was impacted, the families of the Stolen Generation suffered enormously. A report of ‘National Sorry Day’ showed a
Vulnerable is defined as being without adequate protection, being susceptible or open to physical or emotional harm physically or psychologically weak, unable to resist illness, debility, or failure. Vulnerable mothers and children usually live in poverty stricken areas and deal with abuse at some point in their lives. To tackle the issue of vulnerable mothers and children we must first turn to our community and address the issue. In 2008, more than 14 million children under 18 years of age lived in households with incomes below 100 percent of the U.S. Census Bureau’s poverty threshold of $22,025 for a family of

The death of a parent could possibly be the most traumatizing event during a child’s life. “The death of a parent is a shattering event for a child….it stuns, shocks, bewilders, overwhelms, and frightens the child” (Parry & Thornwall, 1992, p. 126). It can cause cognitive difficulties, denial, depression, fear that remaining parent may die, feelings of abandonment, guilt, and inability to trust (Becvar). I didn’t express all of these symptoms but a lot of them I have felt at sometime during my life. When my father died I was too young to grasp the concept of death, so it didn’t effect me mentally until I was around ten.
I find it outrageous that we have spent millions of dollars for the well being of these children and to have mental care for them to not even do their job. In the 1970’s, mental illness and emotional disturbance in children was understood to be their form of disobedience. They thought that this behavior behavior was to be treated harshly with brutal and unjust punishment. At Gatesville in Texas, They were so worried about keeping the towns money in that they kept children for this purpose. It’s irrational of them to keep all of the staff when over half of the institutions populations were released just so that they can keep their jobs.
Child abuse is a complex phenomenon with multiple causes. Understanding the causes of abuse is crucial to addressing the problem of child abuse. Parents who physically abuse their spouses are more likely than others to physically abuse their children (Garbarino, & Garbarino, 1994). Many physically abusive parents and caregivers insist that their actions are simply forms of discipline—ways to make children learn to behave. But there is a big difference between using physical punishment to discipline and physical abuse.
