Definition of Child Abuse
Child abuse refers to any physical injury to a young child inflicted by an adult. Child abuse and neglect can take many different forms. Child abuse is often categorized as either physical or emotional. Physical child abuse involves any action that results in a non-accidental injury to a young child, such as:
- Any other type of bodily harm
Child abuse can also be emotional, involving any behavior or attitude that affects or interferes with the mental status or social development of a young child, including:
- Vulgar or abrasive language
- Yelling or shouting
- Calling the young child names
- Making fun of or degrading the child
- Sexual videos, games, pictures or other images
