Introduction

Janay Perry Fundamental Speech 1:40pm 9, Oct. 2006 Outline of speech on: Child Abuse Child abuse is the physical or psychological mistreatment of a child by his or her parents (including adoptive parents), guardians, or other adults. While this term emphasizes on carrying out wrong acts, a related term is child neglect: not doing what is necessary, negligence. The combined problem area is often called child abuse and neglect. Below the term abuse is used in the generalized meaning which also includes neglect. Child abuse occurs in all classes of society. "A crippled seven-year-old child, whose abuse apparently included having the words 'I cry' burned into his back with a cigarette, was wheeled into a Harris County (Texas) courtroom in a crib today.... The boy, described by one witness as 'bright, but a loner' prior to his injuries, had suffered a ruptured colon from something inserted into his anus, and the ensuing infections resulted in brain damage."

Middle

I. The most causes of child abuse. A) Statistics 1) Statistics alone cannot convey the horror of physical assaults upon children in our society. The Uniform Crime Reports describe the various means by which adults murder their infants and children: shooting, stabbing, bludgeoning, burning, poisoning, strangling, suffocating, and using explosives. B) Quote 2) In 1975 alone, 166 infants less than a year old were murdered, 327 children between the ages of one and four were murdered, 142 children between the ages of five and nine were murdered and 205 children between the ages of ten and fourteen were murdered. C) Personal Experience 3) The most causes of child abuse are; the parent is mentally unstable (anger management, some form of a syndrome), abused themselves, and or they are parenting alone (other parent walked out), so they take it out on the child. II. Ten ways to prevent child abuse.

Conclusion

3) Promote programs in school. 4) Teaching children, parents and teachers prevention strategies can help to keep children safe. 5) Monitor your child's television and video viewing. Watching violent films and TV programs can harm young children. 6) Volunteer at a local child abuse prevention program. 7) Report suspected abuse or neglect. If you have reason to believe a child has been or may be harmed, call your local department of children and family services or you local police department. In conclusion I have explained how there are many children getting abused and how there are possible ways to prevent it from happening. Children get abused not because they choose to, but because the parent is having issues, abused themselves, or are parenting alone. Take this speech into consideration, if you know children that are being abused in any kind of way, please report it. If you are a parent and are abusing your child, please try to either calm yourself, by going into a quiet room so you can think things over, or get some help. Thank you.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

3 star(s)

Quite a thought provoking essay. It outlines some key points but there are areas where a few examples could help.

It could be extended by the writer discussing the signs to look out for when a child is being abused.
