There are different types of child abuse, and they include Physical abuse, Sexual abuse, Emotional abuse, Medical abuse, and Neglect.
Physical Abuse- Occurs when a child is purposely physically injured or put at risk of harm by another person.
Sexual abuse- Any sexual activity with a child, such as fondling, oral-genital contact, in*******se, exploitation, or exposure to child po*******hy.
Emotional abuse- This means injuring a child's self-esteem or emotional well-being. It includes verbal and emotional assault — such as continually belittling or berating a child — and isolating, ignoring, or rejecting a child.
Medical abuse- Occurs when someone gives false information about an illness in a child that requires medical attention, putting the child at risk of injury and unnecessary medical care.
Neglect- Child neglect is failure to provide adequate food, shelter, affection, supervision, education, or dental or medical care.
Child abuse takes many forms, which often occur at the same time.
Child Abuse Prevention Month is a month recognized as a time for communities to unite, promote healthy children and families, and end child abuse.
