Child Abuse is a Bad Thing for Society

by Adriana

Child abuse is a crime being done and nobody is doing anything to stop it. Children are growing with the thought of abuse being a good thing or thinking that it's normal to be abuse and be treated like a piece of land or an object.

I couldn't agree more; child abuse IS a bad thing for society. But there are people who are trying to do something about child abuse. It's a very complex issue. Laws put children at risk when they don't offer protection that is afforded adults. Adults put children at risk when they refuse to accept that children should have rights equal to that of adults. Society puts children at risk when they turn a blind eye and when programs designed to help parents and children alike are either cut or not given an opportunity to thrive. I hope that you, Adriana, along with others, will not turn a blind eye and will not live with the status quo and will do what needs to be done to protect our most vulnerable and innocent in society. Children are not possessions, but as long as we treat them as such, they will continue to be abused. You are the future, Adriana; and that future can determine the future of the most precious of all things: our children. Thank you for sharing your thoughts about child abuse with my visitors and me.
