child_abuse2 As you know this month is child abuse month and I wanted to highlight a few very important  facts and statistics to remember about child abuse:

  • Every ten seconds a report of child abuse is made
  • 1/3 of all abuse victims go on to abuse their own children.The cycle of abuse can only be stopped if people recover from their own issues before having their own children.
  • The rate of child abuse in the United States from birth to age three is 16. 4 per 1,000 children
  • 3 million reports of child abuse every year are made
  • The causes of  the continued cycles of abuse are silence, ignorance and denial

 So  please please  please be a voice for the defenseless and the most innocent
