Student research paper


The objective of this capstone project is to educate the community and school staff on how we can help child abuse. Child abuse refers to psychological abuse, physical abuse, sexual abuse, and any form of neglect by a caregiver. It concerns behavior by a parent or carer that causes harm to a young person. My dissertation addresses the topic of child abuse, considering the various forms in which it exists, and the causes and effects associated with it. It also highlights various aspects of the topic on assignments and general overviews. The subject is considered one of the challenges facing the current generation and is preventing children from fully developing into fully functioning individuals in society. Child abuse has a variety of factors that contribute to it; some of them come from parents, other circumstances, and environments. This article discusses the topic comprehensively and provides insights into understanding child abuse as a challenge, and a major societal issue to build a well-functioning and stable community.
