If victims of child abuse are not healed, they can be scarred for life.
“Nationally,” according to a January article in the Boston Globe, “702,208 children were reported to have been abused and neglected during scal 2014.”
Kids who are abused can face many issues going forward, experts say. They may experience trauma because of bad memories and from being afraid that it will happen again. They can behave aggressively, not only with family members
but also within their communities. They might be fearful of physical touch and be unable
to form normal relationships.
Children are our future. Aren’t we supposed to love and protect them? Why are they being mistreated?
