Child abuse and Prevention

Any physical, sexual or psychological maltreatment or neglect of a child by a parent or caregiver is known as child abuse or child maltreatment. Physical abuse is causing any non-accidental or intentional injury to a child. Sexual abuse is when an adult uses a child for sexual gratification or uses him for sexual acts. Emotional abuse is when a child’s mental or social development or cause severe emotional harm. Most emotional abuse is caused by a pattern of behavior and is often repetitive. Apart from the above types of abuse, neglecting a child from its basic support needed for a child’s health, safety and wellbeing such as inadequate supervision, emotional neglect, medical neglect or educational neglect come under child neglect. Since charity begins at home, the act to prevent child abuse has to start at home as well. The following steps must be followed. One should never discipline a child when you are angry. You must get to know your child’s friend and participate in your child’s activity. They must be taught to raise their voice to prevent them from abuse in their own life. If your child doesn’t want to stay with someone or go to a certain place, do not ignore this red flag. It is also important to notice sudden change in your child’s behavior since it could also be a sign of ongoing child abuse. A child must also be taught what to do in case he becomes separated from parents away from home. They must be taught correct names of their body parts. It is very important to pay attention to lookout for people who take more than normal interest in your child. The last point is the child’s school should release your child to you or someone you officially designate.
