What is your feeling when you look at this CHILD ABUSE picture? Angry? Sad? Or Pissed Off?
Do you know there is more than 2000 cases were reported in 2008 and this is not including those unreported cases! According to the statistics of Department of Social Welfare (Jabatan Kebajikan Masyarakat), it shows that there has been a rise in reported child abuse incidents in last 4 years, in other words, more than one child is being abused around you!
What Is Child AbuseA “child” is anyone under the age of 18, according to the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) and Malaysia’s Child Act 2001. For your information, some of the bloggers are still consider as a CHILD! Yea, they're still underage and I just passed my 18th birthday last 2 months ago!
Here is the Type of Child Abuse:-
Neglect (Keabaian):occurs when parents, guardians or caregivers deliberately or intentionally fail to meet the child’s physical and emotional needs. The most common child abuse in Malaysia! Many people might wonder why neglect can be the top, still remember those news about "Kecuaian ibu bapa menyebabkan bayi mati dalam tidur" or "Anak mati lemas atas kecuaian orang tua", those cases are classified as NEGLECT!
Physical Abuse (Penderaan Fizikal): occurs when there is physical use of force against a child, resulting in harm to the child. I believe that most of you are very familiar with this type of child abuse. Hitting, Beating, Kicking, Shaking, Strangling, Scalding, Burning, Poisoning, Suffocating and Severe Corporal Punishment, any violent action against children is physical abuse!
Sexual Abuse (Penderaan Seksual): the involvement of a child in sexual activity that he or she does not understand fully, is unable to give informed consent to or that violates the laws or social taboos of society.Some of the parents raped their children just because they think the children are their belongings. I just read a news about a mental illness girl is being raped by her dad last few days ago, I think this is one of very-common-popular topic in our society.
Emotional Abuse (Penderaan Mental): occurs when parents or caregivers consistently fail to care and love their children, by failing to provide a nurturing, loving and supportive environment appropriate for their development. Whenever you humiliation, withholding of love, blaming, frightening, threatening, terrorising, discrimination, ridiculing, and other non-physical forms of rejection or hostile treatment at your children, you're abusing them!
