The family trap

The family trap | Sisah investigation | Scoop.it
It is the institution in which the vast majority of child sexual abuse occurs but the victims won’t be able to tell their stories at the upcoming royal commission. Children who are sexually abused by family members suffer the ultimate betrayal of trust, with nowhere else to go and no-one else to turn to. Sarah Dingle investigates their long search for justice.

Delaware Law Bans Parents from Spanking their Kids

Delaware Law Bans Parents from Spanking their Kids | Sisah investigation | Scoop.it

Delaware has become the very first state to pass a controversial law that effectively outlaws the corporal discipline of children by their parents. Sponsored by Delaware’s Senate Majority Leader Patricia Blevins, the bill redefines child abuse laws to include any act that causes “pain.”

The legislation classifies child abuse as a separate crime in the state and increases penalties in child abuse cases. Prior to the new law, child abuse cases were prosecuted under the same statute dealing with assault by abuse or neglect that applied to adult victims. “Assaults against children are different than assaults against adults,” said Sen. Blevins. “So, it is important to make this a standalone crime.”

Sexual abuse - Better Health Channel

Sexual abuse - Better Health Channel | Sisah investigation | Scoop.it
Sexual abuse (also referred to as sexual assault) can be experienced by children, women and men. Understanding of this issue has grown through the increased openness and willingness of adult survivors to discuss sexual abuse, as well as development of service support networks. Children who experience sexual abuse may show physical signs or changes in behaviour. If you suspect sexual abuse or have been told about it by a child, you must report it.
