ABUSE

Child abuse is a very common thing in today's society, although some may no aware of this.
The abuse occurs in the home where the bruises can be hidden. The emotional and physical
scars are hidden behind clothes, makeup and lies. There are four different types of abuse
suffered every day by children all across the world. The four different types are
physical, sexual, emotional and psychological. The abuse leaves scars with children for
the rest of their lives, physical scars, but the one's that cause the most pain are the
emotional scars, the scars that last forever.


Child abuse is the intentional use of physical force or intentional omission of care by a
parent or caretaker that causes a child to be hurt, maimed, or killed. In the Canada the

report incidents of suspected abuse, more than two million cases of neglect and physical
abuse are reported annually with child abuse it covers a wide range of parental actions

  • War on drugs
    war on drugs War On Drugs This is supposed to be a free country. I don\'t see that it would harm you or anybody else if someone smokes a few joints a week in moderation. What is the harm done to you? Is this enough to take fathers and mothers away from children?

    African Women Introduction 70% of African women with disabilities get them from their husbands. In Africa, most women have little or no rights. This effects what they can do for work, how their family life is, and what future they have. Women throughout time, especially in African culture, have always been subservient to men. The status of women in Africa is second-rate. In countries like the United States, women have the same rights as men and are almost equal. But in Africa it’s totally differ
  • Charles Dickens
    Charles Dickens Charles Dickens Dickens has always presented problems for literary criticism. For theorists whose critical presuppositions emphasize intelligence, sensitivity and an author in complete control of his work the cruder aspects of his popular art have often proved an insurmountable obstacle, while for the formulators of traditions his gigantic idiosyncrasies can never be made to conform. If difficulties such as these have been overcome by the awareness that Dickens sets his own stand

    Freedom Have you ever wondered what life at school would be like without “freedom?” In myopinion I think it would be horrid. Think about it. If we had no freedom we wouldn’t be able to do the things we love most, or choose what friends we hang out with. The freedoms we have now we all take for granted. For example, do you even know what your freedoms are? If you don’t, then you ought to hear me out so you know in the future what they mean. First of all there are two very specific freedoms that a

That task alone is extremely complex and involved, but the brain also has many other tasks.
