Child Abuse Can Lead To Bullying

There are nearly three million child abuse cases reported each year but experts believe the actual number is closer to nine million, as most go unreported. So many abused children suffer silently in America with no hope. Child abuse costs this nation's tax payers approximately 100 billion dollars annually. That cost does NOT reflect the pain, suffering, or reduced quality of life which may be the largest cost component of child abuse. Quiet children in schools or seemingly troubled children on our streets might actually be victims. Imagine feeling unprotected, unloved and unsafe.

There are several signs to look for in children who are abused; some of which are but is not limited to: Burns, bites, bruises on children, changes in behavior, lack of participation in school, failure to provide food, clothing, shelter, education, medical care, or adequate supervision, or letting strangers or irresponsible persons with tendencies toward violence supervise your child.
