  12. 12. Understanding child abuse and neglect Mohammed abd almonaem
  13. 13. Child abuse is more than bruises or broken bones. While physical abuse is shocking due to the scars it leaves, not all child abuse is as obvious. Ignoring children’s needs, putting them in unsupervised, dangerous situations, or making a child feel worthless or stupid are also child abuse. Regardless of the type of child abuse, the result is serious emotional harm.
  14. 14. Myths and facts about child abuse and neglect
  15. 15. MYTH #1: It's only abuse if it's violent.
  16. 16. Fact: Physical abuse is just one type of child abuse. Neglect and emotional abuse can be just as damaging, and since they are more subtle, others are less likely to intervene.
  17. 17. MYTH #2: Only bad people abuse their children.
  18. 18. Fact: While it's easy to say that only "bad people" abuse their children, it's not always so black and white. Not all abusers are intentionally harming their children. Many have been victims of abuse themselves, and don’t know any other way to parent. Others may be struggling with mental health issues or a substance abuse problem.
  19. 19. MYTH #3: Child abuse doesn't happen in “good” families.
  20. 20. Fact: Child abuse doesn't only happen in poor families or bad neighborhoods. It crosses all racial, economic, and cultural lines. Sometimes, families who seem to have it all from the outside are hiding a different story behind closed doors.
  21. 21. MYTH #4: Most child abusers are strangers.
  22. 22. Fact: While abuse by strangers does happen, most abusers are family members or others close to the family.
  23. 23. MYTH #5: Abused children always grow up to be abusers.
  24. 24. Fact: It is true that abused children are more likely to repeat the cycle as adults, unconsciously repeating what they experienced as children. On the other hand, many adult survivors of child abuse have a strong motivation to protect their children against what they went through and become excellent parents.
  25. 25. Fathia fareed ibrahim

  28. 28. 1/ Physical abuse Many physically abusive parents insist that their actions are simply forms of ways to make children learn to behave, But there is a big difference between using physical punishment to discipline and physical abuse. The point of disciplining children is to teach them right from wrong, not to make them live in fear.
  29. 29. 1/ Physical abuse Physical abuse may involve hitting, shaking, throwing, poisoning, burning or scalding, drowning, suffocating or otherwise causing physical harm to a child. It may also be caused when a parent or carer fabricates symptoms of, or induces illness in a child.

  32. 32. 5/Limited physical contact with the child—no hugs, kisses, or other signs of affection. 6/Exposing the child to violence or the abuse of others, whether it be the abuse of a parent, a sibling, or even a ppet. These will Causing a child to feel frightened or in danger

Child neglect is not always easy to spot.
  34. 34. Sometimes, a parent might become physically or mentally unable to care for a child, such as with a serious injury, untreated depression, or anxiety. Other times, alcohol or drug abuse may seriously complicate the problem Older children might not show outward signs of neglect, becoming used to presenting a competent face to the outside world, and even taking on the role of the parent. But at the end of the day, neglected children are not getting their physical and emotional needs met.

  42. 42. Risk factors of child abuse and neglect Fatima awad
  43. 43. Risk factors for child abuse and neglect:While child abuse and neglect occurs in all types of families — even in those that look happy from the outside — children are at a much greater risk in certain situations.
  44. 44. Domestic violence:- Domestic violence is fearful to children and emotionally abusive, Even if the mother does her best to protect her children and keeps them from being physically abused, the situation is still extremely damaging.
  45. 45. Alcohol and drug abuse:Living with an alcoholic or addict is very difficult for children and can easily lead to abuse and neglect. Parents who are drunk or high are unable to care for their children, make good parenting decisions, and control often-dangerous impulses. Substance abuse also commonly leads to physical abuse or serious illness.
  46. 46. Untreated mental illness:- Parents who suffering from depression, an anxiety disorder, bipolar disorder, or another mental illness have trouble taking care of themselves, much less their children. A mentally ill or traumatized parent may be distant and withdrawn from his or her children, or quick to anger without understanding why. Treatment for the caregiver means better care for the children.
  47. 47. Lack of parenting skills:- Some caregivers never learned the skills necessary for good parenting. Teen parents, for example, might have unrealistic expectations about how much care babies and small children need. Or parents who were themselves victims of child abuse may only know how to raise their children the way they were raised. In such cases, parenting classes, therapy, and caregiver support groups are great resources for learning better parenting skills.
  48. 48. Stress and lack of support:- Parenting can be a very time-intensive, difficult job, especially if you’re raising children without support from family, friends, or the community or financial difficulties. Caring for a child with a disability, special needs, or difficult behaviors is also a challenge. It’s important to get the support you need, so you are emotionally and physically able to support your child.
  49. 49. Warning signs of child abuse and neglect Fardous babeker
  50. 50. • The earlier child abuse is caught, the better the chance of recovery and appropriate treatment for the child. Child abuse is not always obvious. By learning some of the common warning signs of child abuse and neglect, you can catch the problem as early as possible and get both the child and the abuser the help that they need.
  51. 51. • Of course, just because you see a warning sign doesn’t automatically mean a child is being abused. It’s important to dig deeper, looking for a pattern of abusive behavior and warning signs, if you notice something off.
  52. 52. Warning signs of emotional abuse in children • Excessively withdrawn, fearful, or anxious about doing something wrong. • Shows extremes in behavior (extremely compliant or extremely demanding; extremely passive or extremely aggressive). • Doesn’t seem to be attached to the parent or caregiver. • Acts either inappropriately adult (taking care of other children) or inappropriately infantile (rocking, thumb-sucking, throwing tantrums).

  86. 86. Right to Health Right to Food Right to Education Right to life Right to protection
  87. 87. Right to Health Every child has the right to health care, clean water, nutritious food and a safe environment so they can be as healthy as possible.
  88. 88. Health Medical resources are very limited and are drained still further by the country’s internal conflicts. In Darfur, for example, a large majority of hospitals are currently under reconstruction.
  89. 89. Health There is a desperate lack of medical supplies and facilities, and existing facilities are illequipped to deal with the vast numbers of children, principally newborns who are suffering serious illnesses often caused by malnutrition and dehydration.
  90. 90. Right to Food The conflicts which have ravaged Sudan over decades, combined with harsh climatic conditions such as floods and droughts, have led to severe food shortages. Unable to rely wholly on their own crops, the Sudanese people are still largely dependent on food aid.
  91. 91. Right to Food safe drinking water is limited in Sudan. According to UNICEF statistics, 40% of the population has no access to safe drinking water.
  92. 92. Food problems Children are particularly at risk from food shortages, and the rate of infant mortality is especially high as 30% of babies are underweight at birth.
  93. 93. Right to Education Almost half of Sudan’s children are not in school. Although education in Sudan is in theory compulsory, the reality is quite different. Children fail to attend or finish school usually due to poverty, instability and lack of security.
  94. 94. Right to Education Girls, in particular, face many obstacles preventing them access to education, including child marriage in some areas and a lack of community awareness about the importance of educating girls.
  95. 95. Education problems In order to reduce school dropout rates, the Ministry of Education and the World Food Programme have joined forces to provide lunches to all pupils. Parents are now more willing to send their children to school, knowing that they will be fed.
  96. 96. Right to life The right to life is a moral principle based on the belief that a human being has the right to live and, in particular, should not to be unjustly killed by another human being. The concept of a right to life is central to debates on the issues of abortion, self defense and the morality of war.
  97. 97. Right to protection UNICEF uses the term ‘child protection’ to refer to preventing and responding to violence, exploitation and abuse against children – including commercial sexual exploitation, trafficking, child labour and harmful traditional practices, such as female genital mutilation/cutting and child marriage.
  98. 98. Child marriage In Sudan, 12.4% of girls are forced to marry before the age of 15. Marriage is governed by a Sharia-based law introduced in 1991.
  99. 99. Child marriage The practice of child marriages is very harmful to young girls and their health. At such a young age, girls’ bodies are not fully developed and are therefore not equipped for pregnancy or labour.
  100. 100. Female Genital Mutilations Sudan ranks second for the number of female genital mutilations in Africa. 90% of female Sudanese have their genitals mutilated before they reach the age of ten.
  101. 101. Female Genital Mutilations Sudan practises the most severe form of FGM: infibulation, which involves the complete removal of the clitoris and the cutting away and stitching of the labia.
  102. 102. Female Genital Mutilations The practice of FGM is extremely painful as it is performed without anaesthetic, is a risk to health and to life, and represents a terrible violation of the girls’ rights. It runs risks for the girls’ health and their lives as they can easily develop infections.
  103. 103. Main problems faced by children in Sudan:
  104. 104. Poverty Sudan is one of the world’s poorest countries. 40% of its population live below the poverty line and the majority of Sudanese are destitute and living in terrible conditions.
  105. 105. Poverty A harsh climate and a lack of natural resources are primarily responsible for the prevailing poverty, but political instability and internal conflict have aggravated the situation. Denying them even their basic needs, extreme poverty is robbing Sudanese children of their childhoods.
  106. 106. Child soldiers Sudan, like South Sudan, has recruited many children to its armed forces. According to UNICEF, there are about 6,000 child soldiers in Darfur alone.
  107. 107. Child soldiers Official reports show that the youngest soldiers are only 11 years of age and that girl soldiers are often the victims of sexual abuse against which they receive no protection.
  108. 108. Child soldiers In Sudan, two long civil wars have left millions dead, internally displaced persons and refugees.
  109. 109. Child soldiers For the children of Sudan, the primary victims of the conflict, there have been drastic consequences for their education, health and wellbeing.
  110. 110. Displaced and refugee children Sudan has the largest number of internally displaced people in the world. In the face of violence because of the conflict, many families are forced to flee their homes to escape a gloomy fate.
  111. 111. Displaced and refugee children The journey to camps can be long and perilous and many fail to make the journey alive.
  112. 112. Displaced and refugee children Once having reached the camps, food, health and physical security are still not assured. Armed groups are known to target civilian areas to amplify the effects of their attacks and living conditions within the camps are poor.
  113. 113. Displaced and refugee children Humanitarian organisations concerned to help the refugees are not always able assist as they are at times unable to reach the camps.
