Child Abuse

Soundtrack By: Allie Sharpe

"It Shouldn't Hurt To Be A Child"-Calli Kathleen (2014)

I chose this song because it explains on how it shouldn't hurt to be a child. When growing up you should have fun and enjoy being little. You shouldn't sit in your closet and hide because you are getting abused.

"Approximately 5 children die every day because of child abuse."

"Concrete Angel" -Martina McBride (2009)

I chose this song because it talks about how she gets up every day and goes to school but keeps a smile on her face. Her dreams give her wings and that's why she is called the angel and she keeps going.

"14% of all men and 36% of all women in prison were abused as children."

Martina McBride - Concrete Angel

"I'm Ok"-Christina Aguilera (2002)

I chose this song because it talks about how she was so hurt. She will never get it out of her head either. It is crazy how somebody can put you through so much.

"In the United States, more than 4 children die from child abuse and neglect on a daily basis. Over 70% of these children are below the age of 3."

Christina Aguilera - I'm Ok Lyrics

"Why"-Rascal Flatts (2009)

I chose this song because I am the same way why do such a harsh thing to somebody you love. He talks about how he there is an angel looking down and seeing this little kid get abused. It's a very sad song about why do people do this.

"2.9 million cases of child abuse are reported every year in the United States."

"Why" -Rascal Flatts Music Video

"Blown Away"-Carrie Underwood (2012)

I chose this song because talks about how her dad was a mean guy and there was a storm coming and she wishes that it would just blow the house away to wash the sins away. She just wants it to be all gone so she don't have to go through it anymore.

"1 out of 3 girls and 1 out of 5 boys will be sexually abused before they reach age 18."

Carrie Underwood - Blown Away

"The Little Girl"-John Michael Montgomery (2000)

I chose this song because it talks about how they never went to church and they were on pills and drank everyday. They used to beat their child. It kept getting worse and finally her dad took a gun to her mom and then finally they took the child away from him and gave her to a new family.

"In 2012, 82.2% of child abuse perpetrators were found to be between the ages of 18-44, of which 39.6% were recorded to be between the ages of 25-34."

The Little Girl (with song) - John Michael Montgomery

"Kill A Word"-Eric Church (2015)

I chose this song because it talks about how he wants to kill words to not hurt people. Most of the time people use words that hurt people really bad and that is an example on child abuse. People don't realize what they say to hurt the child so bad.

"About 80% of 21-year-olds who were abused as children met criteria for at least one psychological disorder."

Three Year Old-Eric Church

"So Cold"-Ben Cocks (2010)

I chose this song because it talks about how her home doesn't feel like home anymore.

She feels so cold and alone. No one should ever feel like this.

"Children who experience child abuse and neglect are 59% more likely to be arrested as a juvenile, 28% more likely to be arrested as an adult, and 30% more likely to commit violence crime."
