Yes, clearly, this is opening a huge can of worms here.
As Moms we tend to look at other children who act strange and try to find any physical sign that they are abused. Yes, I understand not all of of do this but quite a few of us ignore the "Not my child, not my problem" mindset that has become popular.
what about when there are no physical signs? What if there are no burns, marks, bruises or broken bones in a cast?
Example: A child who hears her name called in a stern voice by her Mother stops and listens when the Mother comes closer vs that same child who hears her name called sternly by her Father flinches as he gets closer. Is it a sign of physical abuse without marks?
