Child abuse occurs when a parent or other caregiver causes or neglects to prevent physical or emotional harm or sexual abuse.
Neglect is by far the most frequent type of reported abuse. Neglect of a child refers to the failure to meet his or her need to be fed, clothed, and kept from harm.
Go away I do not need it right now.
Go to your room I will be in there soon.
An adult who has imposed any type of sexual act upon a person younger than 18 years of age has engaged in sexual abuse. In a 2012 maltreatment report, of the victims who were sexually abused, 26% were in the age group of 12–14 years and 34% were younger than 9 years.
Physical abuse is any intentional act causing injury or trauma to another person or animal by way of bodily contact. Some examples are hitting, beating, hitting with an object such as a belt or stick, kicking a child, or holding a child underwater.
Dad stop that hurts.
Oh be quiet.
Emotional abuse is a person subjecting, or exposing, another person to behavior that may result in psychological trauma, including anxiety, chronic depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder. It involves name calling, ridicule and humiliation, destroying property, and sometimes harming or killing pets.
Dad, do not hurt Buster he is just a dog.
I will do whatever I want.
Every child who has experienced abuse or neglect will have their own response to the trauma. While some children have long-lasting effects, including eating disorder and self harm, others are able to recover quicker and with ease. There is not a right or wrong way for a child to manage effects of the abuse and neglect they have suffered
