Child Abuse: An Imperfect World A major American society issue is child abuse and it just keeps increasing with each new generation. We need to always be on the lookout for signs and symptoms of child abuse and report it to proper authorities. “Approximately five children die every day because of child abuse” (Ho, Gross, & Bettencourt, 2017). “One out of three girls and one out of five boys will be sexually abused before they reach age 18” (Gosselin, 2014). And, 90% of child sexual abuse victims know the perpetrator such as a family member” (Ho, Gross, & Bettencourt, 2017).

Child abuse is the physical or emotional mistreatment of a child by a parent, guardian, or other person. Information of child abuse, including sexual abuse, beating, and murder, have climbed in the United States and some authorities believe that the number of cases is under reported. Child neglect is sometimes integrated in legal definitions of child abuse to cover instances of starvation, abandonment, and insufficient care of a child's safety. When reported, child maltreatment cases are intricate by poor foster care services and a legal system that has trouble obliging to the susceptible nature of children(Child Maltreatment, 2015). Every year more than 3 million reports of child abuse are made in the United States involving more than 6 million children.

Sexual abuse on children is becoming more known in the United States as the years go on. The number of reports and children involved in these reports are shocking and disturbing. According to National Child Abuse Statistics (2013), three million reports a year are being reported with six million children involved in these child abuse cases in the United States, with 9.1 percent of those cases being sexual abuse.

Child abuse and neglect definition may vary according to the state, child welfare system, economic. Abuse and neglect is found in combination rather than alone. Neglect occurs when parents and care takers are unable or unwilling to meet a child's needs. Physical neglect can severely impact a child's development resulting in failure to thrive, malnutrition.
