    Hurting a baby that cannot defend himself is the most cruel and hard to accept thing. It’s not ok when adult people are aggressive to each other, much less when kids are involved.

  3. It always really bothers me when I see reports of deaths from child abuse. Partially because I theorize that the kid prob lived thier whole life in the same abuse that eventually killed them. 🙁

    It is a very difficult topic for many, and unfortunately it happens more often than we would like to think.

    Well said, but what’s your take on abortion? What if the girl doesn’t want to go through the labor itself? I’m curious.

      If the girl was raped or her life is in danger it’s her choice but if she was enough adult to have a sex she should knows consequences

    Reading articles about child abuse literally makes me so mad and upset. I just don’t get it, I don’t get how anyone could ever do that to someone so innocent. Great post. Thanks for sharing with #GlobalBlogging

  8. I can’t tell you what I would do to a person if I was left alone with an abuser. Something we don’t want to acknowledge but sadly happens more than we know. #globalblogging

    Oh I can’t even think about it. It’s too horrendous and beyond my comprehension how anyone could ever harm a baby or child. Yours or not. It is just horrible. Thank you for joining us at #familyfun xx

    Physically hurting an infant or child for stupid reasons like losing a game or whatever else is never okay. Some parents go through mental illness and not know it. These aren’t reasons to be acceptable of physically emotionally or verbally abusing anyone especially infants and children but it’s something that requires a lot of light. Personally I struggle with postpartum depression, Anxiety and OCD. I only recently found out. But have been going through it at least for the past 2-3 years. The causes of not knowing affected my son the most. The anger, anxiety and overwhelming feeling that I cannot fully understand where it roots caused a lot of emotional and a bit of verbal outbursts. I have been feeling so much guilt about it but have seeked help. The thing is, not everyone acknowledges anything is wrong, especially when you relate most of it with stress of child rearingets. Does this make me a terrible mom? Does this make me undeserving of my children or incapable of caring for my children? NO. But again, the levels of ppd varies. Some have it worst, some have it not as bad..but either way having to acknowledge something is wrong is a first step. We don’t know why this cruelty happens to innocent children and I’m not for it. But there’s a lot to consider with all the terrible things that are happening in the world. It’s just as bad as war countries brutalizing or passing religious beliefs that are inhumane. But there’s not much that gets done about that..but its just as bad if not worse as those individuals who chooselse to hurt their own children.

  13. Many times I can’t even read the stories because they make me physically ill. It is just so sad. I know people get into hard situations but like you said…ask for help!

    It is inhumane how someone can hurt a baby but people do. I agree with you that we have to believe that evil people will get what they deserve,

  15. Adriana says:

    True, it’s so awful. So many children abused, neglected, and dumped into the system.

  16. Liz says:

    It breaks my heart anytime I see a story about a baby being hurt. I don’t know how anyone could hurt a tiny baby, or little kid.

  17. so well said! just because you are broken don’t break your child he/she still have a chance for a normal life…

  18. this is a great post!! i really don’t imagine hurting my child or any child at all!

  19. Unfortunately, the statistics of child abuse are alarmingly high. It is a very sad state of affairs.

    Such an emotional post… such demons still exist in this world..They need to be wiped out & made to learn that babies are biggest God’s gift

  22. Debby says:

    Abuse can be caused by many reasons. Often times anger management is at the core. Often the baby is abused but so is the mom, which is why she is powerless to intervene. Often times the baby is ‘accidentally’ abused because there is shaking to stop the baby from crying. Many people do not understand the capacity of a baby to learn and expect them to act like a young child. This is a terrible situation and there needs to be alot of investigation into the why. It is not a simple thing. But sadly it is a common thing. It needs to end

  23. TheCrazySAHM says:

    I understand the shock factor that comes with child abuse, but the reality is, more prevention could be occurring if people would become more knowledgeable as to why it happens. In a world lacking awareness surrounding mental health, addiction, and domestic violence, many people read the headlines of abuse that has occurred and never realize that often times, there are indicators before abuse occurs that, if recognized, could have helped to prevent it. Many situations where abuse occurs now a days are not just because parents are young and immature, but that parents of all ages lack support, intervention, and general parenting knowledge.

    You would be shocked at the number of generational substance users out there who do not realize the problems they cause their children due to their own use, because they grew up in the same environments. I have also heard many, many times that these same individuals would like the opportunity to be sober, but they do not know where to start. When all of your supports are users, how do you find a way out?

    Also, women and men alike who end up in violent situations 9 times out of 10 do not have the option to just “get out”. Did you know that the majority of domestic violence fatalities occur when a partner is trying to leave? Not only this, but the majority of physical abuse situations where a child is injured as a result of domestic violence occur because the child intervenes trying to protect a parent.

    You would not even want to start reviewing the statistics surrounding the lack of mental health services available around the country. The lack of these same services for children is unreal. Problem is, many people with these mental health diagnosis cannot get to the services needed to help them, and thus they form unhealthy coping habits that compromise their children’s safety.

    It is so very devastating to think of a parent harming their child, but becoming educated on warning signs, and ensuring that people are doing their part to report situations that could be detrimental to child safety could help a great deal in changing the outcome for another child.

  24. it’s just awful.

    Hurting a child is just so horrendous . Why would someone do that?

  26. Akyn says:

    It crushes my heart every time I can read news about babies being hurt or maltreated. How can someone hurt such an innocent angel who can’t even defend themselves against abusers ? I wonder if they are still humans who can afford to torture children.
