How Child Abuse Affects Our Society
I have read the book which is " Achild called “It” since 1 monthe ago.Child abuse is one of the plagues on any given society. Sadly, it is present in nearly every, if not every, society. The fact that this plague affects society as a whole cannot be overlooked. There are a number of ways in which our society in America is directly impacted by the presence of this blight. The eradication of such a detriment would greatly improve our society as a whole.
One of the greatest affects of child abuse is its self perpetuation. It is commonly accepted that children that are abused have a greater chance of growing up and abusing their own children. As with so many other bad characteristics in society, this is a hard cycle to break. It takes a distinct and conscientious effort to disrupt the ongoing cycle of abuse. One must decide that they will not follow the pattern of their parents ahead of him. Unfortunately, since abuse is typically a problem among those that are under educated, those that are abused have very little chance of learning other options.
Child abuse also affects our society because it increases the rate of other abuse in the family. It is not uncommon for children who are abused to extend that abuse to other people when they have their own families. It is not surprising that children who are abused believe that such a practice is acceptable. When they have their own children, they believe that it is perfectly acceptable to abuse them, but they also extend that idea to their spouses. If they have become so domineering to abuse one member of the family, then they will not often hesitate to abuse others, thus guaranteeing the continuation of the cycle of abuse for another generation.
