The “Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act” making a
group that will face the heavy burden of fixing child abuse. It is supposed to
help stop Child Abuse. However, It does not do much to stop it directly. This
act doesn’t send a clear message that it was made to stop Child Abuse. It is a
very vague idea that can be brought to action. When we read the "Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act,"we
thought it was about a group who will be formed a certain way with certain days
for meeting to discuss the issue and figure out ways to stop it. This act is
supporting how you can make a group that will get together and stop all the
We would like to fix this act to say something more direct
about the issue of Child Abuse. Maybe the act could be revised to make sure
that people are better qualified to help the abused children. This act is also
out of date. It was written in the 1970’s. In that time the number of deaths
cause by Child Abuse has gone up instead of down.
Approximately six million children are victims of Child
Abuse. On average, about six kids die every day from Child Abuse. It used to be
about three deaths, but the number of deaths increased to six in the short time
of 8-12 years! Investigating these cases faster could’ve prevented these
deaths. The problem is that the victims are too weak and too scared to speak up
and ask for help.
We can put a stop to this horrible
nightmare and can change the policy. The penalty of the crime should match the
severity of the case. We should keep a watch out for any signs of Child Abuse
and report it before it goes any further and ensure the protection of children
by giving more attention to the issue and by giving public announcements that
prevent Child Abuse more resources to do a better job.
