Child Abuse

Physical Abuse is defined as non-accidental trauma or physical injury caused by slapping, punching, beating, kicking, biting, burning or otherwise harming a child.

Physical abuse is the most visible form of child mistreatment.

Many times, physical abuse results from inappropriate or excessive physical discipline.
A parent in anger may be unaware of the magnitude of the force with which he or she strikes the child.

Other factors that can contribute to child abuse include parents’ irresponsibility, lack of parenting skills, poor childhood experiences and social isolation, drug or alcohol problems and domestic violence.
