Child Abuse is Harm or Threat of Harm to the Safety or Wellbeing of a Child
Now we all know what child abuse is. It’s pretty obvious. And we all have a duty to report it if we witness any of it or believe or suspect that it’s occurring.
Child abuse is harm or threat of harm to the safety or wellbeing of a child. It includes non-accidental injury. It can include accidental injury, sexual abuse, and sexual exploitation. Sexual abuse includes rape, incest, or lewd, indecent proposals.
Sexual exploitation includes allowing a child to engage in child prostitution or enabling them to engage in inappropriate sexual acts.
Neglect means failure to provide food, housing, medical treatment, or anything the child might need or failure to protect them from some dangerous condition.
Hi, my name’s Keith Flinn, the Tulsa FATHERS RIGHTS Lawyer. That was a brief video on the difference between child abuse and neglect and the definitions that the court uses. Thanks.
