Each time we report on a child who has fallen victim to abuse or neglect, it’s difficult. But it’s a reality that occurs far too often across the country, throughout the state, and right here in Northeast Indiana. Some startling statistics from the Indiana Department of Child Services indicated that more often than not, parents are the abusers in these cases. In Indiana in 2008, of 2,361 physical abuse cases, the mother was the abuser in 750 of those cases and the father in 810 cases. Of 17,742 neglect cases, the mother was the perpetrator 10,396 times and the father 4,172 times.



By the time you finish reading this, 15 children will have been abused; In the next five minutes, 30 more; Within the next hour, 360 more; And by tonight, close to 8,000+ children will have suffered from abuse, 5 of which will die. Child abuse has increased 134% since 1980 and is now considered a worldwide epidemic. The high jump in child abuse deaths and the shocking increase in statistics highlights the frightening lack of public knowledge.
