Child Abuse Kylia Ballard Arkansas State University Child Abuse Child abuse is when a parent or caregiver, whether it is through action or not acting, causes injury, death, and can cause emotional harm. There are many forms of child abuse, including neglect, physical abuse, sexual abuse, and emotional abuse. Physical abuse of a child is when the parent or caregiver causes non-accidental physical injuries. The child could have been beaten, burned, or any other physical harm like broken bones. Sexual abuse is when an adult uses a child for sexual purposes or when a child is in a sexual act. It includes the child not being able to give consonant. Studies show that one in four girls and one in eight boys are sexually abused, and one in 20 children are physical abused each year. (Child Abuse/ Emotional abuse is when the parent or caregiver keeps telling the child they are no good, or keepings talking down to them. Emotional abuse can cause damage, overall, because that child knows that parent thinks nothing of them never has anything nice to say. Child neglect is when the parent or caregiver does not care for the child, no supervision, no affection. Not there for the child’s health, safety, and well-being. They act like the child is not even there. They will just let the child cry and cry and just let the child cry its self to sleep. Parents and caregivers that abuse their child or someone else’s child are heartless. The purpose of the is paper is to show how bad child abuse really is. Literature Review Because child abuse is so bad concluders at schools will notice that there is something wrong with the child. They will try to get answers out of them so hopefully they can help them. Based on Finnish report survey (2013), three per cent of 9th graders reported being slapped by the parent the past 12 months, and 21% reported experience of mild physical abuse. There are more children in schools that are being abused at home then we know of. Not all children will come out and say that their parent is harming them The Researchers has suggested several risk factors for child abuse, which can be divided into child, parent- nd family related risk factors. The child may have a disability, behavioral problems. The parents may include of substance abuse. The translated version of the abuse risk scale has also been proven to be reliable and valid. (Milner, et al.,1986). The scale is usually done on the parent, and the numbers are based on how happy the person is, If the person ever feels alone, If the person feels lonely inside. There are many more they base it on. Child abuse in the united states is high. In 2016, 4.1 million children referred to US protective service agencies (Burea, et al., 2016) Most of these referrals are 65% were by professionals met the child victims. Child abuse is critical for a consoler, because they know that they are mandated reports. The parent is going to end up finding out that someone reported the incidents and the abuse could just get worse. The passage of the child abuse prevention and treatment act (CAPTA; Pub.L. No 93-247) In 1974 brought child abuse in spotlight. Child abuse needs to be put back in the spot light. Child abuse has not gotten better the statistic for child abuse has changed a lot. People do not realize how bad child abuse really is. There are many kids different ages getting abused daily. By 1986, most states had mandated teachers, Nurses, Social works, and mental health professionals. (Fraser21). Today everyone is considering a mandated reporter. We say, “You see something, say something.” You do not have to be a teacher, nurse, or a social worker to say something. Prior to our study, there was no law about child abuse related to consulters and their role as mandated reporters. Most professionals if they do see signs that a child has been abused, they are going to report. Child abuse prevention can be by the parent or caregiver not raging their anger when the child did something wrong. The parent or caregiver could also go to the child’s school activities and get to now their friends. Just pay attention to the child because that is all the child wants from there parents. There is a current study that supports child neglect the patient had to read from a list of common actions impactable with child neglect, this action was based off a three-point scale. For each item to be always never or sometimes experienced, the actions were child abuse. (Appleton, et al..,2012). There are about 1,720 children died from child abuse. There are so many more children that were victims of child abuse. There has been a study that there are one and four children have been abused by there parent or caregiver. Children’s lives are shaped by their experiences by what happens in their environment and the type of relationship they have with there parent or caregiver. The children that due show signs that they were abused will have a negative effect on things. Professionals can try and find a way for the parents to have a better life style. The parent could be mentally sick to where they feel like they must go off on there child to feel better. we believe CM approaches can address child neglect by focusing on its antecedent stimuli, and using rewards that are culturally and environmentally proper, salient. For instance, a baby’s rash may be prevented by teaching a significant other to contingently reward caregiver efforts to check diapers every few hours by cooking dinner, or a child’s illness may be prevented by contingently providing backrubs to a caregiver for her efforts to assure children are seeing a medical doctor regularly, wearing coats, eating healthy meals and so on. (Kirby, et al..,2006). Help stop child abuse by becoming some child’s foster parent so that child can grow up in a loving home. Become a child’s mentor so they will not like all people are bad and that some one is here to listen, to play, and to show that child love. There are so many families that get reported for child abuse and it really needs toReferencesThe use of the Brief Child Abuse Potential Inventory in the general population in Finland.
