CHILD ABUSE AND NEGLECT2Child Abuse and NelgectThis writing is of focus on the topic of child abuse and nelgect. Mainly, focusing on the causes and effects it has on the children as they develop and grow into adults. As someone who works with children from the age of infancy to adolescence that have experienced some type of abuse or neglect which is one reason this topic is very important to me.There are many types of child abuse and they all have one thing in common which is the mistreatment of children from a parent and/or caregiver. Childhelp.org defines abuse by Physical,Sexual, and Emotional abuse; Physical abuse is when a child is hit, whipped, or any form of physical injury that intentional. Emotional abuse is harm to a child’s mental and social development. Sexual abuse is area type of sexual act or acts that are being forced against a children( Childhelp, 2019). Child neglect is failing to provide the needed physical, emotional, educational, medical including dental, and/or lack of supervision(Mayo Clinic Staff,2018). According to Joyful Heart Foundation statistices show that every 10 seconds a child abuse report is made and 91 precent of reports involve abuse by the parents; In the United States only four to five children die daily involving child abuse or neglect (Joyful Heart Foundation,2019). What causes a parent or parents to become abusive? Most commonly there is a history ofabuse in their own childhood, mental illness, family issues/crisis, lack of education by parents about child development, addiction to drugs/alcohol, or a combination or any of these factors(Mayo Clinic Staff, 2018).
