I am researching child abuse and neglect currently as a broad topic. I am particularly interested in person stories. Also, books/memoirs of personal stories that you have read that touched you. Anything that you wish to share. All stories remain anonymous.

As you know, abuse can occur anywhere, home, at a relative's or friend's house, school, church, and daycare facilities. Offenders come from all walks of life. Parents, teachers, childcare workers, social workers, relatives, clergymen/women.

Please note that I am also interested in child neglect. Sometimes, neglect is not recognized as an offense or even a real and meaningful problem, something I wish to shine a light on with my research and writing.

Important: Child abuse does not just mean bruises and broken bones! Psychological abuse is abuse. Verbal abuse is abuse. It can hurt more than a broken bone. The harm can be more lasting. This is also true of neglect.

I will be attaching an email and setting up a blog soon. Thank you.

is failure to pay child support ever considered as child abuse? when a deadbeat parent owes more money than ever has paid and the arrears amount to almost $50,000 for 2 children at an original amount of $50.00 per child per week, that to me is gross child abuse.

any comments?

Kidnapping fathers children?so that makes the children just yours?ransom?sounds like you are nuts,what did she leave you,and mad you have to help support your child or children?If your a real father ,you should be paying some thing regardless.
If your ex moved,bring it to family court,get your rights to see your child or children.

"so that makes the children just yours"

Hey, isn't that the typical welfare mama's attitude ?

For example :

Mother in family court fighting for custody : "Your honor, I fear for MY children's 'safety' in his/her father's custody" or "Your Honor, I don't believe the father can adequately care for MY children's welfare"

vs.

Mother in family court fighting for support : "Your Honor, I feel the father can do more to support HIS children"

Note how quickly the pronoun changes from "MY" to "HIS"

So save the sob stories, you dig your own graves

"If your ex moved,bring it to family court,get your rights to see your child or children."

Yea, that'll be the day a father gets justice or even equal treatment in the Family Courts of this state...or ANY state !

Tell me...how many broads do YOU know that were incarcerated for interfering with visitation ? I betcha lest than one percent of the guys who are incarcerated for failing to pay child support !

Nobody's buying your con, welfare mama !

LOL......sure, turn it around and blame the man.
Typical welfare mama, blame the man for all your troubles.
It'd be funny if it wasn't so sad.
Unfortunately, you beasts poison the father's children with your bile.

Oh, and by the way...the 'system" isn't SMART enough to 'caught up on me"

I manipulated it JUST right so that the ex-skanker has to beg ME for every thin dime the beast gets, the same way I gotta beg HER for every minute of time with my children.

And I still get to live pretty good.

What goes around, comes around.

Cuz I'm not sheeple.

HA HA HA HA HA HA !

Thank you for your book recommendation. I do have this book, and indeed, it is very powerful.

If I may, I will recommend this book to you: "Nobody's Child" written by Marie Balter. It is about her life, how she coped with a dysfunctional biological mother, then abusive adoptive parents, and then abuse in a psychiatric hospital. It is also a powerful story. It was made into a movie. There is also a documentary that I believe you can find on Youtube that features Marie. Sadly, she has passed away. I wish I could have talked with her just once.

Thank you so much.

P.S. I'm sorry that this thread has turned into something that it wasn't intended for.

Cathy Glass in author who has fostered children for many years. She has written quite a few books on children she personally fostered who were taken from their home from neglect and abuse.

I've read "A Boy Called It." I haven't read the others that were mentioned. Inspiring and depressing all at once.

Looking around, it doesn't seem like we have come very far in protecting children.

I don't think she can help it, as I think she is a lazy welfare skanker.

The edumacation system failed her.

Badly.

Kids are special that is certain. Can I say without being hammered; kids are sure to get damaged someday. They fall riding a bike etc.

But let's hope no adult hurts a child on purpose.

On purpose.

A growing issue in our society relates to what parents are doing with their own lives and how that translates into abuse and neglect for their children. Unfortunately, there is a rising amount of alcohol and drug addicted parents who will not seek treatment, go to treatment but don't make a sincere effort to rehabilitate, or go by court order only to retain custody of their children. Not uncommonly, these parents often come from dysfunctional parents themselves.

Also, there is the issue of mental illness. Often, the same above issues apply to mental health treatment. Denial, resistance, and true lack of understanding of how dysfunctional behavior affects children of all ages.

Then, there is the "God complex." People in authority, e.g. teachers, coaches, who have authority over children and sometimes bully and abuse them.

We must do more than hope that every child will be okay.

One thing is for sure; there are people like you and me who care about children, their outcomes and most importantly society and their influence upon it.
Thank you for your insight.
