Child abuse

"A major area of debate is whether abuse must involve physical harm. Some people argue that shoving or slapping a child even without causing injury should be considered abuse. People also struggle to define psychological abuse, debating such questions as whether abusive behavior includes humiliating a child or failing to provide emotional support"

"The law defined child abuse as “the physical and mental injury, sexual abuse, negligent treatment or maltreatment of a child under the age of 18 by a person who is responsible for the child’s welfare under circumstances which indicate that the child’s heath and welfare is threatened or harmed"
