CHAPTER ONE

1.0     General Introduction

Ch ild abuse is the physical, sexual or emotional, mal-treatment, or neglect of children by parent, guardians or others responsible for a child’s welfare, Physical abuse is characterized by physical injury usually inflicted as a result of beating or appropriately harsh discipline. Sexual abuse includes molestion, incest, rape, prostitution or the use of a child for pornographic purpose. Neglect can be physical, in nature (abandonment, failing to see that a child is attending school) or emotional (abuse of a spouse or another child in the child’s presence. Allowing a child to witness adult substance abuse). In appropriate punishment, verbal abuse and scapegoating are also forms of emotional, or psychological child abuse.

Some authorities consider parental action of cigarette smoke (see smoking).

In praches, there are borderline area as where, what constitutes child abuse is not clear. For example, the U.S Supreme Court has ruled (1944) that parents do not have an absolute right to deny life-saving medical treatment to their children but devout members of the Church of Christ, Scientist and other church believers believes in the healing power of prayer and do not always seek medical help. Most U.S States however, permit parents to use religious beliefs as a defense against persecution for the with-holding of medical treatment from their sick children, even in cases where the lack of treatment, results in a child’s health.
