We never want it to happen, but there are times when accusations come out regarding abuse against children.
Bone fractures a common occurrence that leads to child abuse accusations with children of all ages. These breaks can be with babies that may not be taken care of correctly or older kids involved in violent acts.
The inappropriate touching of children in a sexual way is another common form of abuse. This can be seen by anyone in the child’s life from a daycare worker to a family member. Daycare providers also report cases of bruising or possible harm as they are mandated by the state to do so.
Another common child abuse offense is drugs, either in the home or taken by the mother during pregnancy. Finally, domestic violence in the home is one of the most common situations a child must endure and social services must step in to resolve the issue.
