Neglect and Child Abuse

child"Despite the official definition of child abuse, there are various instances in which it is difficult to determine whether abuse has occurred. A major area of debate is whether abuse must involve physical harm. Some people argue that shoving or slapping a child even without causing injury should be considered abuse. People also struggle to define psychology abuse, debating such questions as whether abusive behavior includes humiliating a child or failing to provide emotional support."
