The project I'm doing is for my 9th grade English class. The project is called "You and the world". In this project I get to talk about thing that people don't really know about. Everyone should know about a few thing that is going on around the world even if it not about them.
My issue that is happening around the world is "Child abuse". I picked this topic because it a topic that is talked about a lot but people just don't care about that much.
For a child with a history of neglect or physical abuse they have a very high risk to have psychiatric problem, or disorganized attachment. The hardest to define from is psychological/emotional abuse this kind of abuse. This type of abuse can make a child blame themselves for a that is going on around him/her, and also feel unloved.
Children that are being physically abuse are very likely to have a lot of bone fractures, and also may have high risks of getting cancer. Physically abuse could be stopped if people that see it happen would tell the cops or if the child would go and tells. Sometime the child will not tell because they might be to scare of what would happen if he/she told someone.
Sexually abuse (CSA) is a type of child abuse in which an adult or someone older takes a kid for sexual stimulation. Types of CSA or sexual abuse are when someone ask or pressure a child to do sexual actives, having sexual contact with a child, making a child make child pornography.
This makes me ask: Why? Why do adult or older people do this type of things to a child? Why is it that they would even think about this in the first place?
I'm looking for more information about what I was just talking about and if I can also find out about the question I have.
Sadness is upon us all but what about the kids of today and tomorrow? Is this the world I know or is it the world you made. You may be sad and in pain but what about the kids? You hurt them a lot and by many different ways. You hurt them physically and emotionally. So what about the kids? Are you going to hurt them more? So what about all of us will you stand there and not say a thing? What about US?
