Over 6 Million U.S. Children Abused Annually - Stories Of Neglect And Child Abuse
SEATTLE, April 18, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- In the U.S., authorities annually get 3 million reports of child abuse, involving 6 million children. And the numbers are increasing. Every day between 4 and 7 U.S. children DIE from neglect and child abuse. The U.S. has one of the worst records of all the industrialized countries.
April is National Child Abuse Month, and the U.S. child abuse situation is a story that has been long buried. YETItips.com will be helping by offering its new STORIES OF NEGLECT AND CHILD ABUSE for FREE download right up to Mother's Day.
"Abused children turn to criminal activity and turn to using drugs according to the reports," says publisher Roy Carlyle. "When Beth Israel hospital reports they have real data that the majority of kids grow up with some form of neglect and abuse, this is a national cultural crisis. Kids may be sitting in school being misdiagnosed with attention problems, when they are really exhausted and scared from being abused where they live, the night before."
National Child Abuse Statistics
- The estimated annual cost of child abuse is more than 124 BILLION dollars
- Children who experience abuse are 9 times more likely to become involved in criminal activity
- More than 2/3 of people treated for drug abuse, reported being neglected or abused as kids
- Children whose parents abuse alcohol and other drugs were 3 times more likely to be abused and more than 4 times more likely to be neglected than kids in non-abusing families.
What's going on and what to do
The F.B.I. reports that every day more than 100,000 kids under the age of 18, stand by U.S. freeways, trying to hitch rides to run away from their homes. Kids are running away from family or foster situations that don't protect them.
