The Harm In Child Abuse

by Maria C
(Phoenix, Arizona)

Child Abuse Is One Of The Hardest Things A Human Being Could Go Through Or DO!!!!!! Being Abused As A Child Could Lead Up To Many Things In The Future. Such As Emotionally, Physically, And Mentally Harmed. In The Other Hand Being Abused Or Seeing Others Get Abused Can Harm You And Make You An Abuser As Well. There Are Many Sad Things We All Face During Our Lifetime. We Might Get Dumped By Our First "Love". We Might Fail A Big Test. We Might Also Fail A Grade But Nothing Is Worst Than Being Abused As A Child Or Getting Killed. "It Is Estimated That At Least Two Out Of Every Ten Girls And One Out Of Every Ten Boys Are Sexually Abused By The End Of Their 13th Year." You Can Help Stop Child Abuse By Telling Others When You See People Getting Abused Or When You See That Something Isn't Right. Another Way You Can Help Is By Simply Not Being An Abuser Yourself.....


PS. OH AND JUST FOR YOUR OUR KNOWLEDGE, CHILD ABUSE IS ALSO KNOWN FOR CAUSING MANY CHILDRENS DEATHS!!!
