However those reports can be made for multiple children in a home with more than one child. In 2007 approximately 5.8 million children were involved in child abuse.

Look on You tube if you really want to and see the stories of child abuses. Kelsey Briggs in one of them, she was 2 about to be 3, her step-dad killed her. A couple of days before her birth daddy was coming home from over seas. The day he got home he had to burry his little girl. She was a beautiful little girl, people suspected child abuse and she ended up with her grandmother, but her mom got her back. According to one page at the end it was like she knew she was dying. I bet you her dad regrets ever joining the Military, or regrets not being able to come home sooner. She was his pride and joy, she loved him she was daddy's little solider. Read up on that story if you want to maybe that can help make a difference. She ended up breaking both of her legs and was in a cast. You might get sad and if you do then that's good! It shows that you care about it!
Please don't blow this off and not do anything about it. Please do something about this and help out the millions of children. The abuser shouldn't have to take out their anger issues or problems on their children but they do and it's not fair. I know life isn't fair but we shouldn't be playing this as that. Children are our future and do you really want them to be child abuse victims? For all of us non-child abuse victims aren't you lucky your parents or parent loved you enough not to abuse you? Do you show them how lucky you are? I mean you don't have to worry about if tonight or today is the day you're going to be killed. We're very fortunate people if we can honestly say I have never been abused by anybody. Sure maybe I honestly can't say that. But I can honestly say my parents have never abused me, and I'm pretty sure you can too? We can help make many more people be able to say that and not be lying.
If you get affected by this, or any other way of people trying to raise awareness then it shows that you care. And since you care you should do something about it. A parent should have thought it through before having kids instead of taking it out on the children; they didn't ask to be born into the family to get abused. The parent should have just abortion the baby instead of abusing it and ends up killing the poor kid. We shouldn't have to listen to it, not when we're able to help spread the awareness and do something about it. If you see it happening pick up the phone and call somebody, if you just blow it off you are no better than the abuser in this case. You're just helping the abuser not the child(s) and the child(s) is way more important the abuser by not reporting it so do something if you see it!
Child abuse is so wrong, it shouldn't have to be something that happens daily. We need to be able to stop it and help the child(s) because sure we didn't do anything. But can you honestly tell me you would be able to sleep with yourself if you knew about a child(s) being abused and did nothing about it? I know I couldn't be able to. Child abuse is just showing that the adult or abuser has major anger issues and takes it out on the kid because it's easier to deal with that than the own pain they're dealing with. When they will end up in jail for it and having their child(s) taken away. Children shouldn't have to consider child abuse as their parents' way of love. It's not love, and child neglect is just about as bad off.
In 2005 12.1 of every 1,000 American children, almost 900,000 in all suffered abused from adults, with parents of victims accounting for almost 80% of abusers. Every day about four children die due to child abuse or neglect most of them being babies or toddlers.

Abused children are more likely to abuse alcohol and become addicted to drugs, and one third will later abuse their own children. Of all prison inmates, 84% were abused as children. So now that you know some more about it are you willing to help raise awareness? Please do something to help child abuse. It should be easy to be a child, it shouldn't have to be hard or it shouldn't have to hurt to be a child. What did the child ever do? All they tried to do is show to people that they love them. Let's try to stop Child Abuse!
