Solutions for Child Abuse
Child abuse is defined as any act that endangers a child's physical or emotional health and development ("Child").
Sexual abuse is letting the child engage in or expose them to inappropriate situations (Jennings).
Physical abuse is injuries that are meant to harm the child by the caretaker (Jennings).
Neglect is when basic needs of the child are not met (Jennings).
Emotional abuse is when the caretaker yells and lowers the child's self-esteem by harsh comments and words (Jennings).
When a child is beaten and abused their self esteem is lowered drastically.
This results in exclusion from others and a growing anger towards the world.
Ultimately this could have horrible outcomes such as bullying, sexual abuse towards others, and school shootings.
