Introduction and Conclusion Checkpoint What adjectives come to mind when adults hear the word "children?" Happiness, Energetic, Optimistic, Cuteness. Unfortunately, not everybody thinks positively about children. Statistics shows that 60% of child abuse happens in the child’s own house. In most cases children are being abused in their own house by their family. Child abuse has occurred for years. Fifty-nine years ago there was not enough support to help abused children; however, today there are many organizations in every state that can help children who are being abused, and that can help prevent child abuse. Though the reasons for child abuse vary from abuser to abuser, the effects are determined over time and vary depending on the circumstances. Child abuse is considered when a person assaults a child emotionally, physically, sexually, and carelessly. Emotional abuse is anything that has to do with verbal abuse. Such as when a person aggressively calls a child by names: “fat”, “ugly”, “retard” and so on, when a person is accusing a child, blaming a child of something, and when a person is constantly criticizing a child. On the other hand, physical abuse is also known as domestic violence.
