Child Abuse
Child abuse occurs when a parent, family member or caretaker physically hurts a child or adolescent, makes that youth feel worthless, has sexual contact with him or her, or does not provide adequate food, care, or shelter. All forms of child abuse cause the victim pain and suffering. Child abuse happens in all types of families, and in most cases, the abuser is related to the victim. Young people often blame themselves for the family crisis brought on by abuse, but it is not their fault. Every state has laws against child abuse.  

It is important to tell someone who can help you decide if there is abuse in your family. If you tell someone that does not believe or help you, tell someone else until someone listens.
