Problems of Child Abuse in the Home
Alekseeva, L. S.
Russian Education and Society, v49 n5 p6-18 May 2007
Children make up the segment of society that is the most defenseless, vulnerable, and completely dependent on adults. It is the fault of adults when children end up in areas of natural disasters and catastrophes or zones of military combat operations and become the hostages and victims of physical, sexual, and emotional violence. As E. Fromm pointed out, the scale of atrocities that are committed against children is very high, from the infliction of bodily injuries to torture and murder (Fromm 1999). The current period has witnessed trafficking in children; children's destitution, begging, and prostitution; economic exploitation; loss of dwelling and family livelihood; and neglect of their needs and interests. There are frequent deaths of children due to hunger or warfare, interethnic conflicts, murder in refugee camps, and in the home. In this article, the author discusses the problems of child abuse in the home and provides ways on how to combat violence against children.
