Kristen Simon English 101 Could you imagine being scared to do almost anything because of the way your father or mother might react? I had a friend whose father would beat him almost on a regular basis. His mother knew about it, she would get hit sometimes too, but neither of them ever said anything. If someone you loved was abusing you, what would you do? Would you be strong enough to get help? Or would you fall into the trap of the word “love”? Abuse can be mental and physical, and they can both hurt just as much as the other. It can also be done by someone you never thought could hurt you. Domestic abuse is seen all over the news, with the most common form being child abuse. Child abuse is one of the best kept secrets lately; everyone knows about it, but no one likes to talk about it. Kids are always scared to get help when it comes to things like child abuse, they can’t ever really get over the fact that their parents are hurting them. There are a lot of causes for child abuse.
