Child abuse is physical/sexual or mental ill-treatment faced by a child at the hands of an adult. However the main question is that what leads a person into ill treating a innocent defenseless child. It is observed that in most cases the abuser has had previous history of abuse, he/she has been a victim of child abuse. Secondly the person finds him/her self inefficient to care for the child (in case of disabled children), inability to control aggression.

Some of the best ways to avoid child abuse is to involve communities. Communities on a whole could start various public education activities, child education classes, where children are taught what to do if they face any abusive situation at home or at school. Most importantly set up family support programs where not only the child but the entire family can help deal with the situation.

Some of the other ways of treatment include Complex post-traumatic stress disorder, Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

It is the mental, verbal, physical or sexual assault on a child and it is a cycle that affects many and once a child has to endure that kind of pain they will be scarred for life, their emotional skills could be degraded and their hearts unable to forgive still holding the grudge.

Child abuse is ill-treatment either psychological, emotional, physical, sexual or physiological.

It is poor treatment which results in an adverse reaction for the child involved.
