Child Abuse and Human Rights

"Child abuse is when a parent or caregiver, whether through action or failing to act, causes injury, death, emotional harm or risk of serious harm to a child. There are many forms of child maltreatment, including neglect, physical abuse, sexual abuse, exploitation, and emotional abuse". Child Abuse violates Article #4 of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights: no slavery.

In Chicago, the reports are that 79.5% of children suffer neglect, 18% suffer physical abuse, and 9% suffer sexual abuse. The problem with child abuse is that children can get traumatized; they need to talk to someone. In Chicago, almost five children die everyday of child abuse.
