WHAT IS CHILD ABUSE? 

Child abuse is legally defined as: 

• A physical injury which is inflicted by other than accidental means on a child by another person. 

• Sexual abuse, including both sexual assault and sexual exploitation.

• Willful cruelty or unjustifiable punishment of a child. 

• Cruel or inhuman corporal punishment or injury. 

• Neglect, including both severe and general neglect. 

• Abuse (all of the above) in out-of-home care. 

INDICATORS OF CHILD ABUSE 

Below are some indicators of child abuse which can help you recognize an existing or potential problem of abuse. 

Physical Abuse 

Physical abuse may be defined as any act which results in a nonaccidental physical injury. 

Indicators of physical abuse: 

• Bruises, burns, abrasions, lacerations, or swelling caused by other than accidental means. 

• Belt buckle marks, handprints, bite marks and pinches. 

• Child states injury was caused by abuse. 

• Injury unusual for a specific age group. 

• A history of previous or recurrent injuries. 

• Unexplained injuries; conflicting explanations or reasons for injury.

• Child excessively passive, compliant or fearful. 

• Caretaker attempts to hide injuries. 

Neglect 

Neglect is essentially the negligent treatment or maltreatment of a child by a parent or caretaker under circumstances indicating harm or threatened harm to the child’s health or welfare. 

Sexual Abuse 

Sexual abuse is defined as acts of sexual assault on and the sexual exploitation of minors. 

Indicators of sexual abuse: 

• Child reports sexual activities to a trusted person. 

• Detailed and age-inappropriate understanding of sexual behavior (especially by younger children). 

• Child wears torn, stained or bloody underclothing. 

• Child is victim of other forms of abuse. 

YOUR INVOLVEMENT 

Involvement does not mean physical intervention or snooping on your neighbor. It simply means not ignoring the obvious. Fear of involvement has resulted in family tragedies in which neighbors reported they knew what was going on, but declined to get involved. 

If a member of the community, who is not required by law to report, does not want to identify himself or herself, the report may be made anonymously. 

To report suspected child abuse contact your local: 

• Police or Sheriff’s Department; 

• County Welfare Department; or 

• County Juvenile Probation Department
