Child Abuse Is Wrong

by Name Undisclosed
(USA)

My point of view for child abuse is that I think that it should be stopped for good. Not only is it the parents' fault for hitting their child, but at the same time their child has a right to tell someone.


If any child has ever been threatened by a parent to not tell anyone else about them being physically, emotionally, or sexually abused, that's just to scare them into not telling anyone else. No matter what, you should tell a teacher, a counsellor at school, or another relative that you know you can count on!! Don't let your parents hit you or take advantage of your life any longer. Stand up for yourself, and stick to it, at all times, no matter what!! If your some 9, or 10-year-old boy/girl, you can still tell someone about your parents hitting and abusing you! Tell someone and before you know it, you'll finally be free!!!

Abuse NEEDS to be reported...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Thank you for reinforcing the message that abuse needs to be disclosed if there is any hope of stopping it from happening again and again to a child.

Spot on there,whoever you are. It is a horrible thing to endure. Abusers put the frighteners on their victims because they know that what they are doing is totally wrong and they are scared of the consquences when they get found out. the sick stereotype that people who have been abused will become abusers is rather shallow. The survivors may not know how to love someone in the right manner, but it doesn't mean that they will abuse someone. It could almost be used as an excuse by perpetraotors of abuse should they get to court. "I got abused that's why I have abused"
