 Child abuse is the physical, sexual, or emotional mistreatment or neglect to children. In Virginia, a child is abused or neglected every 75 minutes, and every 14 days a child dies from such mistreatment. Even though most of it occurs in homes a great amount of it occurs around you in public. Studies say one of the main reasons for unexceptable parental behavior is the parents expectation level is beyond the childs development level. The best thing for you as a by stander to do is dont ignore the signs stay positive and intervene with the situation this will keep the situation from progressing. There are a list of things you can say to to help the abuse from progressing like:-"Children can wear you out, can't they? Is there anything I can do to help?" -"She seems to be trying your patience." -"My child has gotten upset like that too." -"He has beautiful (eyes)." - this can encourage a more positive mood for the parent
