Transcript of Why Child abuse should be STOPPED!

why child abuse should be stopped! about child abuse child abuse is wrong! it is the the physical, sexual
or emotional mistreatment
or neglect of a child.
There are four major categories
of child abuse. physical abuse Physical abuse involves physical aggression
directed at a child by an adult. Bruises, scratches, burns, broken bones,
lacerations, as well as repeated “mishaps,”
and rough treatment that could cause physical
injury, are the results of physical abuse, all
done purposely. sexual abuse arguably the worst type of child abuse. Child sexual abuse is a form of child
abuse in which an adult or older
adolescent abuses a child for
sexual stimulation. some things you may not know were Forms of CSA include asking or pressuring a child to engage in sexual activities (regardless of the outcome), indecent exposure of the genitals to a child, displaying pornography to a child, actual sexual contact with a child, physical contact with the child's genitals, viewing of the child's genitalia without physical contact, or using a child to produce child pornography. Emotional abuse is defined as the production of psychological and social deficits in the growth of a child as a result of behavior suchas loud yelling, coarse and rude attitude, inattention, harsh criticism, and denigration of the child's personality. Emotional abuse Victims of emotional abuse may react by distancing themselves from the abuser, using the abusive words, or fighting back by insulting the abuser. this could lead to self harm or even suicide. Neglect Child neglect is the failure of a parent or
other person with responsibility for the child
to provide needed food, clothing, shelter, medical care, or supervision to the degree that the child's health, safety, and well-being
are threatened with harm. Neglected children may experience delays in physical
and psychosocial development, things like processing
speed, language, memory and social skills. worldwide child abuse A study conducted by members from several Baltic and Eastern European countries, together with specialists from the United States, examined the causes of child abuse in the countries of Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia and Moldova. In these countries, respectively, 33, 42, 18 and 43 of children reported at least one type of child abuse. Worldwide, approximately 40 million children below the age of 15 are subjected to child abuse each year. At least 106 countries do not prohibit the use of corporal punishment in schools, 147 countries do not prohibit it within alternative care settings, and as yet only 16 countries have prohibited its use in the home. other info Sexual abuse statistics vary between countries and reports, but are
consistently alarming: Research indicates that up to 36% of girls and
29% of boys have suffered child sexual abuse; up to 46% girls and 20% boys
have experienced sexual coercion. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fsDMYeBYrZg by the aaron johnston
