“What do we owe our tormentors? It’s a question that haunts those who had childhoods marked by years of neglect and deprivation, or of psychological, physical, and sexual abuse at the hands of one or both parents. Despite this terrible beginning, many people make it out successfully and go on to build satisfying lives. Now their mother or father is old, maybe ailing, possibly broke. With a sense of guilt and dread, these adults are grappling with whether and how to care for those who didn’t care for them.”*

Slate asks an interesting question: do adults who were abused by their parents owe those parents anything? Is there a line between physical or emotional abuse? Should adult kids be the bigger person? Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian discuss with examples.

I am disturbed! I really didn’t want to write this, but I must. I was trying to research a new article and post for my blog Custody of Children, and what I found frightened me. Most divorced people are very lucky! We will never experience domestic abuse or child abuse in our life times. Most of us won’t, but what about the smaller group who will?

There are many useful sites and articles out there, but none that I saw combined three separate issues. I will attempt to combine them and then I will share resource sites for each issue.

5 Domestic Abuse Myths

1. It was a private matter between adults and or she deserved it. Abuse is about power, the power to control another human being. There was no negotiation and nobody deserved it.

2. Evolution made us this way. The thought here is that thousands of years have made us dependent on each other. The act could not be helped because it was primal instinct. Fear of being alone or abandoned make it impossible for either person to prevent violence. The truth is still that abuse is about power not fear, the abuser is not experiencing fear just power.

3. Nobody is perfect-let’s forgive and forget. We all make mistakes. We forget an appointment or lose our keys. Mistakes cause frustration, cost money, and may even put someone accidentally at risk. Abuse is not a mistake or an over sight. Legal protection followed by anger management would probably be a better first step. If substance abuse is involved then some form of detox would be essential.

4. He/she said: “I’m sorry!” Victims eventually realize and experts understand that violence occurs in cycles and escalates over time. This probably wasn’t the first time and surely won’t be the last. Get help now!

5. She/he doesn’t need protection-it wasn’t that bad! Without protection and without help there is no end to the cycle of escalating violence.

5 Child Custody Myths

1. Child abuse charges occur frequently, they are normally false. Studies of various court records show that only about 10% of custody cases involve child abuse charges. Approximately half of these charges are shown to have merit.

2. Violence between the adult partners does not mean that the children are at risk. Several studies have been completed on this subject. They show that 30% to 60% of these families involve child abuse also.

3. Abusive parents don’t get custody. This data is troubling. Perhaps 70% of abusive parents win some form of custody. Claims of abuse can make the accuser appear less credible than the guilty parent.

4. Good parents don’t lose in court. There is little reason to believe this. The court doesn’t know either parent. The children may not make effective witnesses. Desperation can make the innocent parent appear less credible or even unstable.

5. Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAR) is well understood and is a reliable metric. PAR is a controversial theory that has not yet been accepted by all experts in the field.

It is important to note that the two issues are not separate, but are more part of a single behavior pattern. I chose to remove, where possible, sexist pronouns. Some sites and authors are adamant that only men are guilty of these acts, while others are not nearly so certain. I have no standing on this issue and can only ask you to follow my references for a broader discussion.

Child abuse is no longer new phenomenon. Infact, it has unfortunately become pretty much of a usual occurrence in today’s day and age. It is a serious crime and perpetrators of child abuse should not be allowed to go scot-free. This hideous crime can occur in a child’s home, or in the organizations, schools or communities the child interacts with.Child abuse lawyer defines child abuse as any corporal injury inflicted upon a child due to physical cruelty, sexual violence, psychological abuse, emotional abuse and mental ill-treatment. School abuse, child injuries, birth injuries, dog bites, foster care abuse, school injuries, shaken baby abuse, day care injuries, negligence, burns, clergy abuse , car accident, medical malpractice, personal injury and wrongful death, all figure in this consideration set.

Whatever be the reason, location or source, the impact that this gruesome crime has on the developing psyche of a young child is unrepairable for most part. Not only does it have a serious emotional, physiological and physical implication on victims, but also leads to suicides in extreme cases.

While the situation is getting alarming by the minute, it is important to seek the assistance of a good Child abuse lawyer, who can help get the victim both justice as well as a suitable monetary compensation for the harassment caused. However, since not all attorneys may have the required potential and apt experience to handle the complexities of a child abuse case, it is important to engage a child abuse lawyer who will be able to find out those who are eventually accountable for the abuse and fight for the award that is justified.

However, there are no specific educational qualifications for becoming a child abuse lawyer. Like all other lawyers, a child abuse lawyer must have a degree from an American Bar Association accredited law school and must be licensed to practice in the state. A child abuse lawyer should understand the sensitivities involved in a child abuse case and should know how to interact with the child victim carefully. A Child abuse lawyer should structure all communication considering the child’s age, mental state and education level. An experienced Child abuse lawyer will counsel the child on the case, the child’s rights, the case proceedings and what to expect during the proceedings. The child abuse lawyer will also assist the child to testify against the abuser. Moreover, a good child abuse lawyer will work closely with the police and other investigating agencies to gather evidence and to get the accused convicted. A good child abuse lawyer will ensure that the child victim gets both the justice as well as compensation he or she rightfully deserves to rebuild his or her life which has been ruined by the cruel act. Even schools, day care centers, etc can be made to be held responsible for compensations, if any negligence from their part had facilitated the heinous crime of child abuse.

Contact an experienced child abuse lawyer if you are a victim of child abuse case. An experienced child abuse lawyer will ensure that you get justice.

The author discusses about the laws that the Child Abuse Lawyer should be aware of. Information provided is useful in educating the people about these acts.

Elderly Abuse is a hot topic in today’s eldercare sector, since the incidence of senior citizen neglect and abuse is an epidemic concern all across the world.  The elderly are an age demographic which is particularly susceptible to various abusive behaviors, including physical abuse, emotional abuse, financial abuse, sexual abuse and medical abuse.  Worse still, many seniors can not get help when they are being mistreated, dooming them to protracted periods of suffering, often ending in significant injury or even death.

 

The elderly deserve respect after a lifetime of struggle and hard work.  Elders have earned the right to enjoy mental peace and quality healthcare in their old age.  The ravages of time, disease and advancing years are hard enough to bear, but when neglect or abuse is added to the mix, there is little hope for truly enjoying one’s golden years.  Senior citizens must face a variety of problematic concerns as they age, including the mental and physical health issues which might make them incredibly dependent upon caregivers.  It is this very dependency which prevents many seniors from getting help when they are suffering abuse.

 

In some cases, the elder can call for help, but is hesitant.  They are being abused by the very person(s) who are taking care of them and are afraid of what will happen if their caregiver is arrested.  Most of the time, this takes place when the elder still lives at home and is cared for in a domestic situation by family or friends.  A great number of these elders are terrified of being all alone or being placed in a nursing home, so they endure neglect or abuse in favor of an unknown fate.  In other cases, the elder can not get help for themselves, despite their most sincere desire to do so.  This often happens when the health issues dominating the elder are so severe that the senior is literally imprisoned in their own body.  In other cases, the elder is purposefully isolated away from the world, by their abuser, so they can not get help.  Either way, the senior must endure the continuing poor treatment until a virtual miracle occurs or they, or their abuser, eventually expires…

 

Elderly abuse comes in many faces and can occur due to a great number of reasons.  Most often, abuse and neglect occur when the elder is cared for in their own home, or in the home of a family member.  The reason for the abuses can vary greatly, with passive reasons including poverty, ignorance or health issues with the caregiver and active reasons including caregiver substance abuse, depravity or other criminal intent.  Elderly self neglect is a huge problem for seniors who live alone or with other equally helpless older people.  Self neglect is one of the most common forms of senior citizen abuse with contributing factors including dementia, like Alzheimer’s disease, physical health concerns and poverty.  Occasionally, elders are abused by professional care workers who visit them at home. Home health aides and personal care assistants have been implicated in a large number of abuse cases.  Abuse and neglect which occurs in nursing homes, assisted living facilities and other long term eldercare centers is the rarest form of the problem.  However, while nursing home abuse only rarely happens; it always makes the news headlines, due to the shocking nature of the case.  Of course, these statistics are based on eldercare in the US and other well developed countries. When it comes to lesser developed and undeveloped nations, all bets are off, and elders are truly likely to suffer abuse, regardless of where they may receive care…

 

Elderly abuse is a topic which has fascinated and enraged me for many years.  I have made it a goal to help educate people about senior citizen abuse and neglect in order to help them recognize the signs of abuse, prevent neglect and stamp out the incidence of this horrific problem worldwide.

 

Sensei Adam Rostocki has turned his attention to the epidemic incidence of elder neglect and abuse in his comprehensive website, Nursing-Home-Abuse.Org. Here, you will find everything relevant to the sensitive topic of nursing home abuse.
