Child abuse is something that will carry and haunt kids later when they're grown up. Child abuse occurs when a parent or care giver neglects emotional or sexual abuse. The things children have to go through because of situations they were put in as younger people may cause them to act the same way to their own children. Maybe it can even disturb their personal life and dating people or coming in contact with people in the real world.
"Poor social and living conditions are only one category of risk factors that can lead to child abuse. Parents or guardians who suffer from a range of personal problems also are more likely to abuse their children." Child abuse isn't something a child might know that they're going through it. The harm that physical or emotional abuse does to children can really cause them to think low of themselves and who they are.
I think Macy says this because of all the things she's had to go through as a teenager .
"I am disturbed"
in 2013, nearly 679,000 children were victims of abuse and neglect. Of these, about 80 percent suffered neglect, 18 percent suffered physical abuse, and 9 percent suffered sexual abuse.
people would argue that child abuse couldn't be the parents fault but the child's because of how they act .
Child abuse is only the parents fault. The way the parent was treated as a child could be a factor as to why they could abuse the kid and why the kid might have to be put through physical or emotional abuse.
Adults need to be more careful with what they say and do to kids. Neglection in a home or sexual abuse to a child can affect their life later on and how they are towards their own kids.
