YESSS, STOP CHILD ABUSE!!
-->>>Educate yourself about child abuse. Child abuse is most common within the family household, and children are much more likely to be abused by their parents than they are at the hands of a stranger. Furthermore, abuse is almost never an isolated event. If you have seen signs of abuse, it is likely a systematic trend in that child's life.
--->>>Stop any child abuse you witness. Do not stand idly by if you see a child being harassed or abused. This includes verbal or emotional abuse. If you believe you have witnessed child abuse, but are afraid to act on it If you believe a child is in immediate danger to their health or well-being, report it immediately to the relevant authorities--they can handle a violent individual rather than risking your own safety and the safety of the child.
