I have heard many child abuse cases and I'm totally shocked why such this happening in this society? Have heard about such things. Kindly share it with me.

It is definitely hard hearing stories of child abuse and no-one really understands why it happens. Some factors such as poor parenting, neglectful behaviour, social isolation and poverty can contribute towards child abuse. But this isn't always the case (abuse can happen even when a family is 'well off' or otherwise not dysfunctional). What it comes down to is the individual- the abuser chooses to be abusive, for whatever reason that is (control, power, lack of empathy etc)

It is shocking to hear stories of child abuse so I hope you have self-care in place for yourself!

I have friends who were abused by their parents. In addition, being a sociology major and interested in research on the issues surrounding or involving some families, I certainly know all about child abuse. The stories my friends have shared with me are not my stories to repeat in this kind of a setting (or it's just not my story to tell at all ever). It's painful to think of adults taking their problems or issues or anger or whatever out on children who have little means of defending themselves and often end up traumatized. It's complicated and complex, but regardless of why it happens, it's not ok.

To sum it up in 8.5 words:

There are some fucked-up people in the world.

That's all there is to it. No rhyme of reason as to why.

I just pray that these children get all the help and support they need to try to better cope with living after these horrific traumas and abuse put upon them. Nobody deserves to be abused, child or adult. Human or animal. Living or non-living. Earth or material. Nobody.

We should all live in peace. But that's too much to ask for some people in this world. They ruin it for us.

I'm working on psych classes in my major and have done some studying myself in my own therapy and it seems to be similar to what Holly has said. People who choose to abuse others certainly have problems of their own but it doesn't excuse what they to do other people because they can choose to work through their issues and lead a better life if they'd like to.

Having some self-care is a good idea. Where have you heard about these stories? Did you hear from a friend, or maybe the news? It might help if you don't watch the news as often or focus on happier news articles when you can so you feel a little better. Hearing a lot of difficult stories can be saddening.

One thing I see A LOT of online is when someone mentions children people are okay with other talking about hurting a child.
For example:
"Hey, youtube channel person, what if a child told you that info?" (The video was about a people stating the obvious to this woman)
Replies will be: "Lol I'd beat it." (By other people not the ones posting the videos)

Or there was a photo of a man threating to drop his child off a building unless he gets 1000 likes. He got arrested but people were encourging it!

Children are human beings! This is why more people are becoming mentally unstable, this is why crime is up. Because today, people are encourging child abuse. It's seriously messed up!
