Child abuse, in its many forms, continues to be a worldwide problem. Drug and alcohol use, religious and cultural practices, failing social programs, poverty and a lack of parenting skills all contribute to this devastating crisis. This book explores the depth of the problem, examines the causative factors, and offers solutions to eliminate abuse and neglect.
