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.
