Child Abuse

Child abuse and child neglect can come from a child's parents, guardians, teachers, health providers or other adults who have access to the child.  Child abuse can be either physical, such as hitting, slapping, sexual acts, malnutrition or burning, or it can be psychological, such as sexual contact, confinement, ignoring or bullying.

Child neglect is a form of child abuse resulting from a neglecting the normal and necessary needs of a child.  Child neglect can include not providing needed medical attention or medication, not providing proper nourishment, not allowing for normal child development, not providing a sanitary environment, not providing an adequate education, not providing for normal needs, not providing any special needs the child may have, etc.

Abuse or neglect is not confined just to poor families or single parents. It occurs across all classes of society and can happen in the nicest of homes.  A child who is subjected to abuse is more likely to abuse his or her children as an adult.
