Early Signs of Child Abuse

January - 12 - 2017 Reporter: Sandra Respond

Children experience different types of abuse including physical, emotional, and sexual abuse. Many of them suffer silently for a long time before their parents discover their pain. In most cases of child abuse, the abuser threatens the child against disclosing his or her acts to anyone. Sometimes abuse comes from a close relative or parent, which makes it difficult for the other parent or relatives to learn about it. However, parents and pediatric nurses can look out for some early signs of child abuse.

The lawsuit against Dr. Larry Nassar, Michigan State, USA Gymnastics and a Lansing-area gymnastics club was filed in federal court in western Michigan. It makes claims of civil rights violations, discrimination and negligence. The Associated Press usually doesn’t name people who allege sexual abuse, but one of the plaintiffs, Rachael Denhollander, 32, of Louisville, Kentucky, talked publicly about the lawsuit.

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH — A Utah mother has been charged with child abuse by authorities who say she locked her 12-year-old son in a filthy bathroom without lights for at least one year, leaving him dangerously malnourished. The boy’s father found him in the mother’s house Friday night in the small southeastern Utah city of Toquerville near the state line with Arizona, Washington County Sheriff’s Office Lt. David Crouse said on Tuesday. Authorities found feces throughout the bathroom, one blanket, a few empty cans of beans and a camera that may have been used to capture what was going on in there, Crouse said. The boy was likely kept in the dark, he said. Investigators found 3 square feet of duct tape mounted on the light switch so it could not be turned on. The door had locks on the outside.

The Best Mentors a Child Can Have

January - 10 - 2017 Reporter: Sandra Respond

Growing up, children are exposed to many different types of professionals via career fairs, special guests who visit their schools, and even their own parents. Sometimes children are brought directly into fold, with field trips to colleges, such as the University of Maryland and the Franklin Institute. Many of these professionals can have a marked impact on a child’s life, inspiring them to grow up and become highly regarded movers and shakers in the business world. While one-time visits can be extremely influential on a child’s life, mentorship programs have much more staying power. From there, internships and apprenticeships can be established, enabling each adult involved to benefit, just as much as the children they are guiding and leading. For business owners interested in giving back to the community, becoming a mentor is a valuable experience.
