How To Spot An Abused Child
How To Spot An Abused Child

Child abuse is any harm done to a child by someone responsible for that child. It can take place anywhere, from a child's home, day care or playground an abuser can be anyone from a parent or other family member, a child care provider, teacher or any other adult that the child is in the care of or other children.

There are different forms of abuse, physical, emotional, physiological, mental, verbal and many more, usually children don’t talk about abuse because they sometimes don’t know when they are being abused and some are afraid to talk because the abusers threatens to kill or beat them if they tell, we equip you with a few signs that might appear in a child if they he/she is being abused.

Abused children often keep to themselves they don’t talk to anyone, including other children. If they attend school they don’t get involved in the playing and other activities that other peers get into.

They appear depressed and show no emotions, if they act on their emotions they over react and they are constantly angry, get upset over little things, cry easily and some are violent.

Physically abused children have scars, marks and bruises on their bodies. These scares come from the beating they get from their abusers. Some children are trained to cover up by coming up with excuses if someone ask them about the scars.

Other form of child abuse that most people don’t pay attention to is negligence, when the child is neglected at home that is abuse, you can tell that the child is neglected by the kind of clothes that he/she wears, lack of dental and oral care. The child sometimes can be deprived of food and well nutrition.

It is important to note that children suffer abuse from home, playground and schools so both parents and teachers should always watch out for these signs and act on them. Child abuse is a crime and should be reported to the authorities, a person who fails to report child abuse is as guilty as the abuser.
