Child abuse and drug addicted babies
“How many do you think get abused per day?”, what if I told you that more than three million children under the age of 18 die each day due to child abuse and neglect. People think that child abuse isn’t that big of a deal, but as facts say, child abuse is increasing do to the facts of the abused not getting the help they need and turning themselves into the abusers (Perry) (Muscogee County Sheriff's office). Drug addicted babies are also a big problem in the United States, not merely as many die but basically tortured and grow up to be at a poorer physical and mental standard.

It turns out that babies lives do get affected majorly after the age of four, we’ll learn more about that later though. (Kronstadt, 2013)
Why is child abuse so common you might ask. There are many answers, but the best one that research could come up with is that when the abused don’t get the help that they need to have, they more than often become the abuses and then when they abuse their children, their children become the abusers and it just turns out to be a really long chain of families and generations. (Perry) As statistics show,
child abuse is becoming more
and more common as we
proceed throughout the years
and if nothing helps the people
that are getting abused, abuse
will just keep on happening.
Another reason why child abuse
is getting to be so common
because it is one of the major (Figure 1) shows the rate of child abuse increasing from the problems in the U.S. that gets years 1998 through2010 --most recent Found
over looked. In other words nobody cares anymore about what happens to their children as long as nobody knows about what is happening to them.
Drug addicted babies are also one of the major problems in the U.S. that needs to stop. Throughout the years children...
