Its natural for children to be raised in a warm and loving home and growing up in a nice environment, but in today’s society that is not what our children get to experience. On Feb. 14 th, Albany police removed three unattended children from a home on Sheridan Ave… Conditions in the apartment included rats and mice running around. Feces clogged the bathtub and squalor throughout the apartment and endangered the safety of the children.
The children were taken and removed quickly from the apartment and placed in a caring household. Police told reporters that they had been at the house for three months earlier on November 4 th, however, caseworkers found conditions better than what they were on the 14 th. The apartment was warm and clean and also had food. The mother told caseworkers she was to get food stamps the next day but caseworkers insisted on getting some more food. On Dec.
6 th, the mother visited the office of child protection services with her children. She was offered assistance and told them she needed some help. At no time, however, the caseworkers note the condition in the house that justified the removal of the children. The county is required to do everything possible to keep a family together. This story is still being looked into, but as of now the children are staying in a warm home. This is strictly child abuse, not much as hitting but neglect.
These children were left for days without food, water, baths, or a place to use the restroom. It is said each day in the United States, more than three children die as a result of child neglect and / or abuse. Most of the children who die are younger than the age of five. These children are innocent and have done nothing wrong, but the mother seemed not to be able to take care of them. Child abuse is reported on average every ten seconds, and these types of abuse are as follow, Neglect- 53. 5 percent, Physical Abuse- 22.
Child abuse happens to children everyday as sad as it may sounds, and many children do not get to live a happy healthy life. “Child abuse happens when a parent or other adult causes serious physical or emotional harm to a child. The most serious cause of child abuse can end in the child’s death. Children who may survive may suffer emotional scars that linger long after the physical bruises have ...
7 percent, Sexual Abuse-11. 5 percent, Emotional Abuse-6 percent, and Medical Abuse 6 percent. The statistics say that neglect is the number one abuse that children experience. Parents are not understanding when a child is abused, it effects their whole life, and it will stay with them forever. Men and women who today are serving time in jail and prison have incidence of child abuse. Approx.
three million child abuse reports are made each year. It will not stop either. Parents do things that effect their children and how they are raised up to for all the children can do is pray to God and hopefully something or someone will find them. For God said in John 14; 27 ‘ Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you, not as the world give th, give I unto you, let your heart not be troubled, neither let it be afraid.’.
