CONSEQUENCES OF CHILD ABUSEShrill cries from a small child in the middle of the night. "Ahhh, please daddy don't I'm sorry, daddy I'm so sorry. I'll be good I promise, I love you daddy!" Scared and confused, all she can do is sit there and take the abuse. She's so frighten; she doesn't understand why her daddy hates her so much to hit her so hard. She told him that she loves him, but he still hits her. All he does is yell, "SHUT UP! Why do you make me do this, shut up!" How do you think you would feel? Sitting scared to death, afraid to move, afraid to make him mad. So you sit there in the dark crying ever so quietly. "They cry in the dark, so you can't see their tears, they hide in the light, so you can't see their fears, forgive and forget, all the while, love and pain become one and the same, in the eyes of a wounded child."(Benatar). BAM! He kicks the door in, "Shut up! Stop crying or I'll give you something to cry about!" Later on, a few years down the road, the poor girl was still being abused. She wasn't being abused as much, but still just enough to give her nightmares. She can't seem to get the pictures out of her head, every time she closes her eyes; there he is, beating her.

"Child abuse is the blanket term for four types of child mistreatment: physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, and neglect. In many cases children are the victims of more than one type of abuse."(Baker). Whether a child is physically abused, emotionally abused, sexually abused or neglected, abuse is abuse, and it always hurts. Unfortunately no child is the same and so some types of abuse affect some children differently than others. Children who are physically abused often suffer from extreme behavioral changes such as: "extreme reactions, such as depression, self mutilation, suicide attempts, running away, over doses, being isolated or with drawn, inability to concentrate, lack of trust or fear in someone they know well, unexplained recurring injuries, self-destructive tendencies, aggression towards others, fear of physical contact-shrinking back touched, sudden speech disorders, continual self depression, over reaction to mistakes, and inappropriate responses towards pain ("I deserve this" or even laughter)." (Baker).Adolescents who experience physical abuse have higher tendencies to experiment with drugs and alcohol rather than children who have not be abused. These abused children are looking for anyway out; some way to...
