Child Abuse Around the World
IS 278 Class 822
Child abuse is when a child is physically, mentally, and/or sexually assaulted. Child abuse can leave a kid scared and traumatized for life. When these kids grow older, they wonâ€™t be able to trust anyone. If you try to get close to them they will back away. Also when these kids get older, they may look or turn to suicide. Sources tell us that every 1in 3 girls and 1 in 5 or 6 boys are sexually assaulted before they turn 18. Those kids grow up to be troubled adults and may turn to abusing their children.
The issue of child abuse is important to us because we are also children and we can imagine ourselves living in these conditions. We also think about our friends. What if this was them? What if they try to harm themselves? Our friends deserve way better than that. They deserve a better future. We, the children ask â€œPlease stop the abuse.â€
