US Isn’t Beating Child Abuse

According to an article in the [Kentucky] Gleaner News, all of our society’s efforts to stamp out child abuse aren’t getting anywhere. There are still just as many victims today as before.

An expert on child abuse recommends intensive preventative education to raise kids’ awareness of what constitutes abuse and their knowledge of where to turn for help.

According to another expert, part of the problem is that people just don’t want to believe that child abuse is taking place right in their own neighborhoods.
