2 CHILD ABUSE AND PREVENTION Child abuse consists of anyone under the age of 18 that is exposed to abuse by a parent, caregiver, or a person in a custodial role such as a teacher, coach, etc. The four common types of child abuse are Physical, Sexual, Emotional, and Neglect. (CDC, March 2020) Physical abuse is the use of physical force such as hitting, kicking, shaking, burning and other shows of force. Using a belt or wooden spoon to hit your child is abuse. Sexual abuse includes fondling, penetration and exposing a child to sexual acts by pressure or force. Emotional abuse harms a child’s emotional wellbeing and their self-worth. These include such things as name calling, shaming, rejection, withholding love, and threats. Last is Neglect. This is a failure to meet a child’s basic physical and emotional needs such as, but not limited to housing, food, clothing, education and medical care. Approximately one in seven children have experience child abuse and/or neglect in the past year, and this is likely to be and understatement according to the CDC, due to many cases never being reported. (CDC, March 2020). It is five times more likely in families with low socio-economic status.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
