Child Abuse

Carly Wilcox

Every year more than 3 million reports of child abuse are made in the United States involving more than 6 million children. The United State loses on average 4 to 7 children a day due to child abuse and neglect. Every 10 seconds, a report of child abuse is made. More than 70% of children who died as a result of child abuse or neglect were under the age of 2.

Concrete Angel - Martina McBride Oct 2, 2009

I choose this song because it really pulled on my heart strings and made my cry. It really shows child abuse first hand and how no one really stops it even though they know it is happening. Approximately 5 children die every day from child abuse.

Alyssa Lies - Jason Michael Caroll Oct 17, 2006

I choose this song because it shows how kids don't tell anyone about what is going on in their home life and they just let it happen to them. It shows that this subject should be confronted more often and not let go on and let everyone know that there is someone you can talk to about this because you can be helped before it ends up being too late. If you hear a case of child abuse do not wait a date before you take action because one day could be one day too late.

For the Love of a Daughter - Demi Lovato Sept 20, 2011

I picked this song because she talks about how her father drinks because drinking is involved in a lot of child abuse cases. Children who have parents who abuse alcohol have a high chance of experiencing child abuse. Parents who have problems with alcohol or drugs and that cannot take care of their children should not be parents and we need to realize when there is a problem in a family and deal with it.

Does Anybody Hear Her? - Casting Crowns Sept 23, 2006

I picked this video and song because in the video it gives you facts and cases about child abuse victims. Listening to them describe what some one did to their child makes you realize how awful child abuse is. I picked this song because the message behind it asking if anyone hears her, do you hear a kid when they mention it or do you hear them even when they are silent .

It Shouldn't Hurt to be a Child - Carissa Holdaway April 18, 2014

It should not hurt to be a child. You should not have to worry about the people who are supposed to love and care for you unconditionally hurting you. If you speak out and tell someone, you expect them to believe you but maybe sometimes the person is blind and doesn't see the truth. That is the problem, not enough people take action towards these problems and that leaves children injured and even dead if you let these actions progress further.
