Too many children and teens are abused. It needs to stop! Every time a child is abused, belittled, neglected, badgered and bullied, so to is our society. The majority of problems with America stems from child abuse and neglect. Society's ailments like crime, drug addiction, poor academic and work productivity, gangs, and some mental illness, are often a direct result of child abuse. Our prisons are full of people who were abused as kids. Everyone is fighting over whether we should fund or cut Medi-Care, SSI, the Military, education, transportation, etc. They are fighting over whether everyone should have the right to marry, gun control, pipelines, and more. But no one is talking about stopping child abuse! We're treating the symptoms, when we should be treating the cause.
