‘Child abuse, financial crisis linked’

The US Department of Health and Human Services’ Administration (USDHHS) reports that child abuse has reached epidemic proportions with parents being the primary abusers. “Many of our directors tell us their child abuse reports have risen,” said Crystal Ward Allen, director for Public Children Services Association of Ohio.  Parents comprised the largest group of abusers, at 80 percent, with 9 out of 10 abusers being the children’s biological parents.
By the time you finish reading this, 15 children will have been abused; In the next five minutes, 30 more; Within the next hour, 360 more; And by tonight, close to 8,000+ children will have suffered from abuse, 5 of which will die. Child abuse has increased 134% since 1980 and is now considered a worldwide epidemic. The high jump in child abuse deaths and the shocking increase in statistics highlights the frightening lack of public knowledge.

    This is so shocking to me! I had no idea the percentage is so high! I’m doing a report and presentation on this matter. My position argues that the state should step in when dealing with a child who has been abused or neglected. The statistics in this article will shock my audience and i need it too. I would love to get more information that would back up my arguement, if you could help in anyway it would be so appreciated! I also need the authors name of this article and the date this was published. Thank you for all of your help 🙂
