What is Abuse?
Child abuse has many faces, and while all abuse hurts, different kinds of abuse can hurt in different ways. Above are the links to the information page on each type of abuse covered in this Red Flags guide. This information includes definitions as well as possible indicators of the type of abuse.
Abused children do not always show obvious warning signs of abuse or neglect, but sometimes there are subtle indicators. Know the subtle signs of abuse and if you have any concerns at all about a child, contact a policing agency or child services immediately.
