  Child Abuse


Child neglect, child emotional abuse, child sexual abuse, and child physical abuse are happening right now as you read this paragraph. Report child abuse.

Child Abuse Facts

Recent statistics from child protective agencies report almost 1,000,000 children each year are victims of substantiated abuse or neglect.

  • 58% of the victims were neglected
  • 21% suffered physical abuse
  • About 11% were sexually abused

An estimated 1,400 deaths resulted from abuse, with 86% of these fatalities in children under age 6.

 Parents take Care

If your child ever reports of any incident that is likely to trigger suspicion, you must not feel embarrassed to discuss about it and must raise your voice. Your child will appreciate that and it will enable him/her to trust you more often.”

Child Abuse in a rampant problem glaring in our faces. It is our children we happen to be talking about and we need to protect them. We need to make sure that the laws in our country are implemented and we mustn’t let the criminal walk away as this will only encourage him.   

  • Listen to your child and believe him.
  • Never scold your child if he approaches you with a problem
  • Tell him to raise his voice if he feels uncomfortable around a stranger/relative/person
  • Never leave your children with neighbors, friends, relatives, servants, and drivers
  • Spend quality time with your children
  • Remember that your child is your responsibility and any particular action can destroy or build the faith
  • Never make the child feel guilty for something he/she is not responsible for
  • If your child behaves strangely due to some reason discuss it with him
  • If your child suddenly stops socializing, talk to him
  • If he/she refuses to go near a specific person, do not force him

Child abuse can destroy a life. The person may go away but the scars are left behind forever. It is impossible to erase them from the victim’s memory. It often becomes a lifelong saga.


Recognize the Warning Signs:The behavior of children may signal abuse or neglect long before any change in physical appearance. Some of the signs may include:
-Nervousness around adults
-Aggression toward adults or other children
-Inability to stay awake or to concentrate for extended periods -Sudden, dramatic changes in personality or activities
-Unnatural interest in sex
-Frequent or unexplained bruises or injuries
-Low self-esteem
-Poor hygiene



None of us would want our precious little ones to grow up troubled and unable to trust anyone.

  1. I am a parent of a four year old child. Before my son went to Jr. Kg. He had learnt all the nursery rhymes and all alphabets. Upon joining school he was a very happy but mischevious child. He often complained at home that teacher beats him daily. I also came to know from a teacher that the Jr. Kg. teacher often has a habit of making the children stand on the desk and put their self-esteem low. Now my son refuses to want to go to school and also he has unlearnt all that he had learnt before he went to school. The school is the only school in our area and we are compelled to keep him in the same school. I am worried about my child’s future. He is no more concentrating on studies and often withdraws. Is there a remedy for this. Has the child any protection against physical abuse from teachers and trauma from others at school?

  4. A child should never be allowed to stay in a situation that is abusive. I realize that this is the only school in your area, however you need to think about what is best for your child. It would be much better to get your son into a school where he feels safe and where he feels that he can learn without having low self-esteem and abuse. It sounds to me like you want to do the right thing. I don’t really know the policy for the schools in your area, but teachers are not allowed to abuse children…ever. If your child is being abused you need to tell the proper authorities and have the situation taken care of. Removing your son from the situation will benefit not only your son but also your peace of mind. Keep in mind that abuse is very damaging and can last a lifetime if the child is not helped. Your son needs to be able to talk to you about the issue and you need to be available to listen. I think that you should watch
    maybe this will help you with your choice. I will pray for you and your son and I am sorry that he has gone through this. I know what it is like. I have been through the same thing.

  7. you absolutely have to get your child out of that enviroment, there is nothing worse than having your child abused in a place where maybe most of the time he dos’nt even want to be. Its only gonna get worse since the older they get the more they hate school and if this continues he’s gonna graduate into grade school and not make any friends. Sooner or later, he will drop out of school maybe even before high school, so the best thing to do is to take him out of that school, get him to see a professsional counselor and take him to a place where he won’t be afraid and he’ll be able to socialize.

  8. I think that people should be beaten senseless, the ones that abuse children. Maybe they had a hard life when they were growing up but that does not mean that they have to do the same actions to their children. I mean have a little common sense. If your child is telling you that he or she is being hurt you need to stand up and say something to someone, because thats your baby, and you have to protect them.

  10. That’s very sad to here i literally hate child abusers.. it’s childish and so uncivilized if u ask me– I really wish i could just help and take all abused children away from their abusers….ithink that all sick minded people like that should be locked away for life..icant see how parents or anybody in that matter could look at their-selves everyday…I could see if they spanked or whooped children on their bottom’s…but that’s just cruel to hit a child in their face or even hit them to leave a bruse…
