Child abuse is an important pediatric health problem. But during my daily medical practice for more than 30 years, I have a question; Does child abuse is a practice with some degree of acceptance and appreciation in some communities? There are many definitions for child abuse, but the simplest one is, it is any intentional action from side of the person who is caring the child that lead to real or potential harms to a child. The person who endanger the life of the child may be one of his parents.
