More About this course

We must address the root causes of these issues, which requires us to look inwardly. You will agree with me that the majority of the mental and emotional deficiency that is associated with an adult has a lot to do with their upbringing; most especially the conditions that surround their growing up. We are eventually the sum of actions and machinations of our parents or guardians which took place during our formative years.

To begin, we need to understand what exactly child abuse is. Child Abuse can be put as, any form of unpleasant treatment and behavior towards a child by an adult who may be violent or threatening to the well-being of the child.

The act of child abuse occurs when a child is purposely put at risk of harm by another person. It is not only when you slap or beat a child; however, it includes neglect, physical abuse, sexual abuse, exploitation, and emotional abuse. In this book, we shall expand each one for our understanding.
