Because this is such a sensitive issue, unfortunately many cases of child abuse go unreported. In a broad sense, child abuse includes any type of cruelty inflicted upon a child, including mental and emotional abuse, physical harm, sexual exploitation, neglect, coercive or threatening behavior, and more. Typically, children are abused by their parents, caregivers, or other adults overseeing their welfare.
There are a variety of signs of potential child neglect or abuse, including but not limited to: physical marks (unexplained scrapes, bruising, or other wounds), emotional regulation issues (angry outbursts, fearful behavior, aggression, mistrust, depression, anxiety), and social problems (withdrawal or isolation, getting in fights). If you suspect that someone is harming a child, reach out to your local San Jose child abuse attorney as soon as possible.
