United states: Abuse

In 2010, in the United States there was an estimate of 6.2 million children were suspected of having experienced abuse and or neglect. (Kindschi, 2017) In United States, there is an average between 4 to 7 children that die every day due to being a victim or abuse and or neglect.

Why knowing is important?


I think that being aware of child abuse is important because this is something that does underreported often. Children who experience abuse and neglect, often can exhibit emotional, cognitive, and or behavioral problems. Being able to see the signs of a child going through neglect or abuse can help you safe a child’s life.
