*OVERVIEW*• Child abuse leaves children with either visible or non visible scars. Physical, emotional or sexual abuse can occur.• Child abuse can make the child not trust anyone or feel ashamed of themselves sometimes even leading to later on abuse to their child.• Children are like wet cement, what ever falls on them makes an impression..

*LOCATION*• Child abuse happens in all 50 states of the U.S.A and almost every country or continent!! One in four children being victimized? Thats about seven children in every classroom. Thats a significant proportion of the population.
*WORST AFFECTED AREAS*• The worst affected areas in a child caused by child abuse is the stomach/abdomen (physical abuse) but the most the child can feel is within their heart.

*PERSONAL CONNECTION*• The personal connection I have with this problem is that some of my friends have been put through child abuse and I can’t stand the fact that it goes on without people noticing.
*MY SOLUTION*• I think that some people should be watched more carefully because of child abuse and maybe even cameras should be put in house holds.. • Child abuse is a memory that lasts forever

*BEFORE/AFTER COMPARISON*• Child abuse has been less brutal but in some cases more than ever before. Life for an abused child earlier might have included work without pay, forcing children to do something they shouldn’t (illegal sometimes) and even limited affection.
*FREE CHOICE/ MISCELLANEOUS INFORMATION*• Children who are abused have less trust in people and sometimes feel worthless, useless or no good. Life as an abused child can be brutal.
*CONCLUSION*• Child abuse is a brutal thing for a child, I believe no child should be out through abuse. Child abuse makes no sense at all… WHAT’S THE PURPOSE OF CHILD ABUSE??
What Is child abuse?• Child abuse is the physical, Emotional or sexual mistreatment of a child.
When does child abuse occur?• Child abuse occurs normally when the parent or abuser feels that it will teach them a lesson or if they had a bad day. A child is normally abused by someone the child or family knows.
Different types of child abuse.• Emotional abuse• Physical abuse• And Sexual abuse
Emotional Abuse• Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me? Constant belittling, shaming, and humiliating a child. Calling names and making negative comparisons to others. Telling a child he or she is “no good," "worthless," "bad," or "a mistake." Frequent yelling, threatening, or bullying. Ignoring or rejecting a child as punishment, giving him or her the silent treatment. Limited physical contact with the child—no hugs, kisses, or other signs of affection.Exposing the child to violence or the abuse of others, whether it be the abuse of a parent, a sibling, or even a pet.
Physical abuse• Physical abuse involves physical harm or injury to the child. It may be the result of a deliberate attempt to hurt the child, but not always. It can also result from severe discipline, such as using a belt on a child, or physical punishment that is inappropriate to the child’s age or physical condition.• 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. The point of disciplining children is to teach them right from wrong, not to make them live in fear.
Sexual abuse• Child sexual abuse is an especially complicated form of abuse because of its layers of guilt and shame. Its important to recognize that sexual abuse doesnt always involve body contact. Exposing a child to sexual situations or material is sexually abusive, whether or not touching is involved.• While news stories of sexual predators are scary, what is even more frightening is that sexual abuse usually occurs at the hands of someone the child knows and should be able to trust—most often close relatives. And contrary to what many believe, it’s not just girls who are at risk. Boys and girls both suffer from sexual abuse. In fact, sexual abuse of boys may be underreported due to shame and stigma.
