Child Abuse

By: Rachel Bohannon

Emotional and Physical Effects

Child abuse has many long term emotional and physical effects on a child. Usually the emotional effects are worse, but the physical can be just as bad. About 80% of the children that are abused are diagnosed with a mental disability by the age of 21.

Saddening

Are we trying to make our innocent children look like this on a daily basis? Anybody can help stop this, but nobody wants to 'waste their time.'
