One of the most devastating and tragic events that happens every day in our country is the abuse of children. Child abuse can leave innocent victims scarred for life, both physically and emotionally. It is vital for these children to understand that they are not alone, and the abuse is not their fault.
These cases can be very difficult, which is why it is important to get the help of an experienced attorney to guide you through the process.
WHAT CONSTITUTES CHILD ABUSE?
Child abuse is defined as anything that puts a child’s emotional and/or physical health and development in danger. The abuse can be anything from physical or emotional abuse to sexual abuse and neglect.
Physical abuse is anything that results in a non-accidental injury to the child, such as:
- Any other type of bodily harm
Emotional child abuse occurs when the abuser exhibits a behavior or attitude that will interfere with the mental health or social development of that child. This can include:
- Vulgar language, whether it’s directed towards the child or not
- Shouting or yelling at the child
- Name calling
- Making fun of, belittling or degrading the child
Neglect occurs when the caretaker fails to provide the children with the proper items for their development or physical needs. This includes:
- Improper supervision
- Unsafe housing
- Inadequate food or clothing
- Negligent medical care
- Poor hygiene
