Child abuse is the intentional, unexplainable


infliction of   physical, moral, and sexual pain and


suffering on a child. It is caused mainly by parents


who were maltreated as children themselves.   Causes


also include stress, poverty, and/or unemployment.


There are many cases of abuse, but those such as Elisa


Izquierdo’s stand out.   Child abuse consists of


various different causes, types, and cases.


        There are many causes for child abuse, but some


project over the rest.   In some cases   children are


mistreated when parents or caretakers have maladaptive


responses to stressful situations or feel powerless.


Searching for relief, they may hit someone with even


less power than them, and these are often children.


Other times it is the result of family problems over


which the abuser has no control.   Alcohol was said to


be involved in fourteen percent of the cases of abuse


and in eighteen and a half percent of the cases of


neglect.   “Religion, residence in the city or country,


region of the country, and race are all related to


violence in a home.” Approximately eighty percent of


the child-abusers were themselves abused as children.


A high percentage of abusing parents feel that they


are legitimately exercising their parental right.   The


parents injure their offspring hoping that the child


will change a manner or learn a lesson.   They take the


idea of discipline to a brutal degree.   In some cases


the parents are simply too young and/or immature to


take good care of their children.   There is a higher


percentage rate of mistreatment in families with mixed


religion marriages.   Very often it is a recollection


of small pressures that finally make a parent explode.


It is most likely that the abuser is employed only


part-time...
