What Constitutes Day Care Child Abuse?
When most people think of child abuse that can occur while at a daycare facility, they generally think of their child being struck or sexually abused. While these are the most common forms of abuse that your child may experience, they are not the only forms of abuse your child may suffer from. Other common forms of child abuse include; your child not receiving adequate food or water on a regular basis, your child being scolded or yelled at on a consistent basis for no reason, your child not getting the medication that they require, your child's diaper not being changed regularly throughout the day, your child being left unsupervised resulting your child creates hazards for themselves. Although some of these forms of abuse may seem rather minor, they may have long term effects and the effects of abuse and neglect suffered largely depends on the level and frequency of the abuse, as well as your child's age at the time of the incident.
Long Term Effects
There are a number of serious long term side effects that a child may suffer from as a result of day care abuse or neglect, such as mental health issues. Mental health ramifications are especially prevalent in children who have been subject to physical and sexual abuse. These mental health issues may require extensive treatment throughout the child's life, such as therapy sessions and medical treatment. Some children have not shown signs of abuse until years after they occur and common signs of abuse or emotional trauma include; depression, anxiety, eating disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, or other mental illnesses.
It is important that parents be aware of the signs of abuse, they may not be as obvious as you may think. This is why it is important to have an open dialogue with your children about what is acceptable behavior by an adult. Children may not tell you certain things because they are afraid of getting in trouble. Assure them that they can come to you for anything.
If your child has been the victim of day care abuse or neglect, the first thing you should do is contact the police and get your child any medical attention they might require. However, some of the cost associated with receiving the proper medical care for your child, especially if they suffer from one of the long term effects of abuse, can be costly. There may be a way that you can receive compensation for the medical care, along with other damages, associated with your child's day care abuse or neglect.
