Recognizing the Signs of Child Abuse

The Casey Anthony story grabbed headlines around the world. It tore at people’s emotions, and brought up the topic of child abuse once again. Though there are hundreds of thousands of cases of child abuse, most don’t make the headlines. The children simply suffer in silence.
Child abuse is much more than bruises and broken bones. No caring person would want to let a child suffer, yet many people are either scared to interfere, aren’t sure what to do, or they don’t recognize the signs of child abuse.

While physical abuse is shocking due to the scars it leaves, not all child abuse is as obvious. Ignoring children’s needs, putting them in unsupervised, dangerous situations, or making a child feel worthless or stupid are also child abuse. Regardless of the type of child abuse, the result is serious emotional harm.

You are welcome, pi-girl. I think it is an excellent article.

So many folks associate child abuse with bruises or physical injury.

During the Daniel Ehlrick trial, several folks testifed how withdrawn little Robert Manwill had become.

"It won’t make a difference what I have to say" - If you have a gut feeling that something is wrong, it is better to be safe than sorry. Even if you don’t see the whole picture, others may have noticed as well, and a pattern can help identify child abuse that might have otherwise slipped through the cracks.



This last paragraph speaks volumes - If you have to question it, call!
