EMOTIONAL AND PHYSICAL ABUSE
 EDUCATIONAL BOOKS AND VIDEOS

Child abuse is a harmful action on a child or the neglect of a child. Child abuse can be emotional, physical, sexual, or neglect. Most abused children suffer emotional rather than physical damage. Many abused or neglected children will grow up to become an abusive parent themselves. Whether the abuse is emotional, physical, sexual, or neglect the scars can be devastating and last a lifetime. Child abuse is a serious problem. If you suspect a child is being abused or neglected, you should call the police or your local child welfare agency immediately.

Emotional abuse includes verbal abuse. An emotionally abused child may show symptoms of aggression or withdrawal, may be afraid to go home, or may shy away from parents, caregivers, or other adults.

Physical abuse can include striking, shaking, pushing, throwing, pinching, choking or biting a child. A physically abused child may show symptoms of unexplained or repeated injuries such as bruises, burns or welts, unreasonable explanation of injuries, and fearful behavior. Many physically abusive parents and caregivers insist that their actions are simply forms of discipline.

Sexual abuse can be physical, such as inappropriate fondling, touching and actual sexual penetration. It can also be emotionally abusive such as forcing a child is to undress or exposing a child to adult sexual content. A sexually abused child may show symptoms such as the child claiming he/she was sexually mistreated, bruises on genital or rectal area, difficulty eating and sleeping, or excessive crying or sadness. Sexually abused children and their families need immediate professional intervention and treatment.
