Abuse happens everywhere and can happen to anyone, but it can be stopped. We need to help ourselves so we can save our future generation from this hurt and abuse that does not need to occur. There are over 3 million children in the US each year that are abused and neglected. There are so many things we can do to help. These children are begging us to help them out of their lives with abusive parents and even parents that let them sit there and starve and don't care. We have to help them fast! Last year a child died, after numerous reports by him and other siblings that he was being abused were set aside. This could have all been prevented. We are letting children die every day because we can't take the facts that we are given seriously enough to take action. 30% of abused and neglected children will later abuse their own children. Child abuse is generational? Then why aren't we doing anything to stop the cycle! 3 and 4 year olds do not need to be beaten. Let's think about their future for a minute. To think that are children are going to grow up being scarred physically and emotionally. How will this affect their future. Well let's see 66% of drug addicts said they were abused as children. We want our next generation to grow up without turning to drugs or alcohol to get rid of all their pain. They pain they have to endure from child abuse. The psychological damage that is put on them by us. We can get the help we need to help our children. About 30% of abused and neglected children will later abuse their own children, continuing the horrible cycle of abuse. We just can prevent child abuse and make our next generations stronger and better.
