Child Abuse

How to tell if your students are being abused

Most children will be too scared to report the person abusing them so you will have to look for signs

Signs of child abuse

If a child has multiple bruise, has scars, and/or is depressed, they might be being abused.

The quality of their schoolwork might also be a sort of sign. For example, if someone had great grades, and dropped to a d or f all of the sudden, they are either busy with other stuff, or they're being abused by parents, guardian, "friends", or a complete stranger
