My opinion everyday abuse is happen around the word. I really cannot say why?
But these are the kind of abuse that is done daily.
Sexual abuse, Teen violence and the list can go on and on. One writer said they would not like to hear of it. I feel every publisher and writer that has written about all above should keep spreading the word. Implement what resource and support can be use to help put a curve on such Haynes crimes. I believe in our world there is a greater need it's huge with continuing violent crimes, murder and wrong choices that may comes from abuse. Help to put a curve on these horrific violent crimes. In my opinion let's not hide it put more of it out and come together to put a stop in hurting others. Is abuse wrong or should it be Hidden?

It's so sad because we are steadily losing our teens to black on black crime and police brutality. We need more men to step up as mentors and be that hand that can reach one teach one. Domestic violence is a hard on to tackle because the very one you love is the one who is hurting you these people are master manipulators and vindictive. Most of the time brainwashing the abused to believe there is no way out! However with support groups and advocates I believe we can beat domestic violence but it will take community and family support!!!!
Connie have you meet her?Missing Pieces is a true Story. A child or infant is unable to say No, STOP, don't do that, or you're hurting me. Many times they cannot understand WHY they are being hurt. If the abuse is by a parent or love one the child still look to them for protection and trust. So many children, kids, infant, teens are being abuse by the same person that lives in the homes. Which leads me to the CYCLE OF PATTERNS. Children reaching out, sometimes there is no one to reach back. Our children become lost IN hurt...... Some Children that live in an abusive environment may look for love in wrong ways. They lose their identity of who they are, they lose TRUST very easy. I decided to make a critical decision on awareness that growing up in some group homes can affect a child's life forever.
The home Connie lived in was supposed to provide Connie with stability, the need to build character, self-respect, love and protection. But for Connie growing up without her mother's guidance. She went through horrific, physical, mental abuse and repeatedly acts of molestation at a very young age. Leaving Connie in early adulthood to follow PATTERNS of abuse even in her first marriage. PATTERNS can be broken by reaching others to share a life story such as Connie's to break that PATTERN and move forward to the road of freedom. MISSING PIECES. Meet CONNIE and experience her journey of a tragedy and the willpower to overcome many obstacles.
How can we arise above child abuse and domestic violence? Before putting some children in harm's way such as Connie.

What is child abuse?Child abuse includes:
• physical abuse,
• sexual abuse,
• emotional abuse,
• and neglect (which is the failure to provide a minimum standard of care for a child’s physical and emotional needs.)
Child abuse is seldom a single event. Rather, it occurs with regularity, often increasing in violence. It crosses all boundaries of income, race, ethnicity, and religious faith. A child abuser is usually closely related to the child, such as a parent, step-parent or other caregiver.
In homes where child abuse occurs, fear, instability and confusion replace the love, comfort and nurturing that children need. Abused children live in constant fear of physical harm from a person who is supposed to care for and protect them. They may feel guilt at loving the abuser or blame themselves for causing the violence.
The impact of child abuseVictims of child abuse may feel that they are bad and deserve the abuse. They usually have poor self-esteem. In addition to physical injuries that may be the result of abuse, child victims may develop eating disorders or sleep disturbances, including nightmares. They may develop speech disorders or developmental lags in their motor skills. Many child victims demonstrate some form of self-destructive behavior. They may develop physical illness such as asthma, ulcers, allergies, or recurring headaches. Also, they often experience irrational and persistent fears or hatreds and demonstrate either passive or aggressive behavioral extremes.
Trauma in children can take years to manifest; therefore, it is important that victims of child abuse receive counseling as soon as possible after the abuse is disclosed.
Joyful Heart Foundation says Child Abuse and Neglect Cases of child abuse and neglect are far too common within our communities. On average, more than five children die each day as a result of child abuse or neglectin the United States. There are over 6.2 million reports made of child abuse and neglect each year. Over 15 million children witness violence in their homes each year.
While precise legal definitions vary across the United States, child abuse can broadly be defined as an act—or failure to act—that results in a child's serious harm or risk of harm, including physical or emotional harm, exploitation or death. Neglect occurs when a caretaker fails to provide for a child's basic needs.
Children are the some of the most vulnerable members of our society, mainly because of their dependence on others to get their needs met. And sadly, in the majority of cases, the adults that children depend on are the ones responsible for abusing them.
The consequences of abuse and neglect can be profound and can last long into the life cycle. However, once a child's safety is assured, thriving after abuse is possible. At Joyful Heart, we have seen and are in awe of the strength and resiliency of survivors. We believe that every child has a right to a safe childhood free of violence. The experience of child abuse and/or neglect infringes upon that right. These experiences can be immensely painful, and we honor the strength, courage and time that the healing journey takes of survivors. It is our sincerest hope and intention that the information andresources in this section—and throughout the rest of this site—can help along that journey. In addition, it is also our goal for this information to be shared and used as a tool to protect our children and prevent violence before it begins.
