Abuse and neglect occur most often in families who are under pressure and lack support. In this picture it looks like the dad or some man figure in her life is yelling at her for no reason or something simple. Sometimes this causes sadness or bruises to body.

  • There are many signs/symptoms of child abuse but most children will have bruises and scares for were the parents or guardians beat them , some signs can be the child not talking about stuff at home or the child crying repeatedly . Many symptoms can be the child feeling confused or ashamed , and scared to talk about it and its depends on the type of the abuse the parents do to the child.

who tries to help ? what do they do?

Its kind or weird but the people at he or she school might help the student get through the problems , but most kids probably wont open up to the adult because they don't want to get in trouble when the get back home . cause they might get beat maybe even worse.Friends, neighbors and other community members can help to protect child by  being aware and working together.Some people in specific professions are called mandated reporters—people DC law  requires to report whenever they know or suspect a child is experiencing abuse  or neglect

why is this topic important?

its important for people to know about this because the might come across this issues when they see a child being abuse or even crying because of this . Also a child is getting hurt repeatedly but some one whom the love.  they are attributes that serve as buffers, helping parents who might otherwise be at risk of abusing their children to find resources because there parents stress sign, and these can really hurt that child.

what do I think about my topic?

my opinion on my topic is anybody that abuse there child should get locked up for many years , and I do not a prove for any child to get abused. Because many child gets hurt for no reason and they might not deserve what the parent is giving them , do you think its right for a parent to beat there child?
