April is Child Abuse Awareness and Prevention Month
(The following article includes sensitive material)
Most schools do an excellent job educating their students about bullying. The standard operating procedures usually include telling a trusted adult. But what if the child’s parent is the bully? Although the common perception of child abuse is one of rarity, it is prevalent in our country. In the United States, a case of child abuse is reported every ten seconds. These reports number 3.6 million each year. Because cases are under-reported no-one knows for sure how many children are abused or neglected in our nation; in Texas, at least 185 children will be abused today. As it stands, between four and seven children lose their lives to child abuse each day. It is the patriotic duty of every citizen to rid our country of this scourge. Suspected child abuse must be reported. If you are a victim of abuse, or if you notice the following signs in a friend or relative please report it.
Burns, bruises, black eyes
Unkempt or dirty appearance
Inadequate medical or dental care
Sexually Transmitted Diseases, Urinary Tract Infections
Wetting and soiling accidents not related to toilet training
Discoloration or scarring of the genital area
Difficulty walking or sitting that may indicate injury to the genital area
Pain during urination and /or bowel movements
Fear or anxiety about a particular person or place
Being passive and withdrawn, or aggressive and disruptive
Sudden changes in behavior
The abrupt change in eating habits
A major change in school performance
Nightmares or other sleep problems
Sudden mood swings
Frequent absence from school, reluctance to go home
Unusual knowledge of body parts or sexual language
Acting out sexual behavior with toys or other children
Drug and alcohol abuse
