I knew child abuse was a HUGE issue, but I was reading an article in a local magazine which presented some numbers which really shocked me. We all hear about Childhood illnesses and what not, but for some reason there are few charities, walks or anything to help end it... Yet the article said that while Leukemia is the number one illness induced cause of death, the number of deaths due to abuse is FOUR times that of Leukemia...
So my question is this... What (IYO) are some things that can be done to both prevent and stop Child abuse? And do you think there should be more people making more noise about this cause?
If you want to read the article HERE it is... There are some VERY VERY interesting points in that article, but here's the one that caught me most of all - When a child gets sick it's the parents who speak up and create these charities and make all the noise. But when a child is abused it's usually by a parent - and no one is going to make noise to stop themselves...Answer Question

I agree this is a huge issue and something needs to be done. It saddens but yet sickens me at the same time on how these so called parents can do this to innocent children. i wish i could take ALL these abused children in and give them a better life. Something must be done!
