Research on the etiology of child maltreatment can provide a scientific basis for primary prevention of child abusethat is, through programs that will counteract etiological factors before they have a chance to produce child abuse in the next generation.

Child abuse is the physical, emotional or sexual mistreatment or neglect of children or a child. Child abuse can occur in a child’s home, or in schools, colleges, organizations or some communities the child interacts with. There are 4 essential categories of child abuse: physical abuse, neglect, psychological (also known as emotional) abuse, and sexual abuse. Centuries ago child abuse was not considered to be something special or terrible. Most of children used to live difficult life and a great number f them simply could not survive and died. Children were treated violently in comparison to the modern time; no wonder the world literature is full of the texts which illustrate the difficult life of a child nearly in every country in the world. Today the situation has changed cardinally and children are protected by the law and have nearly the same rights as the grownups. Nevertheless, child abuse still exists in various forms and the humanity is looking for the reliable solutions of this problem.
Caution: The following may contain language and thoughts that you might think are just not PC (politically correct). Well, skip this then. A sexist story by Scott Winokur titled, "New Wave of litigation expands women's rights to the bedroom" in the San Francisco Chronicle story and goes on to talk about a woman who received herpes simplex type 2 from her lover. She sued for sexual battery, negligent misrepresentation and intentional infliction of emotional stress. The article went on to cover chlamydia, papilloma virus, gonorrhea and syphilis (genital warts, yeast infection, etc.) What it neglected to say was that, chances are, the man got the infection from a woman. Isn't that interesting. Now, he probably won't sue her because men seldom go after women for money. I received herpes simplex type 2 from a professional woman who I later found out had the virus. She didn't inform my before we had sex, and claimed she couldn't have given it to me. Since I wasn't having sex with anyone else, I could have gotten it from stress. But, I doubt it. And, condoms didn't prevent it. It appears at the base of the penis in the same location as it appeared on her vagina. As the headline denotes, the way the law looks at it is that it's a woman's right to sue for receiving, but don't dare sue her if you're a man and a recipient! And women wonder why it's so hard for many men to trust them. But, if I become famous, you'll write a book about our private life, our sexual life, what will they think of next? And you want me to commit? Commitment is an "I lose, you win" word. One of the interesting lines in the story was very telling. Saying that Sexual Harassment cases became big because plaintiffs could get big awards from deep-pocket corporations, it goes on to say "But in STD cases, the sole source of recovery is the individual defendant, whose vulnerability to being sued is grater depending on HIS assets..." (Capitalization is mine.) What about HER assets? Another case in law, like domestic violence, stalking, visitation, sexual harassment, statutory rape, where, if the man is the victim, for the most part, those are the breaks. The law, the police, social services, you name it, just aren't there. It goes on to say that "The perfect defendant...is "independently wealthy, often times married with a family, eager to keep the matter confidential and willing to spend big bucks." Sort of a case of legal blackmail, wouldn't you say. However, "The prospect of getting a limited financial recovery or none at all from men of lesser means - while serving as a reality check on the hopes of sexually damaged women - hasn't halted their determined march to the courtroom." Continuing the "he" story, "...it may be difficult to prove the prospective defendant actually had the disease because HIS medical records may be unobtainable." "... it doesn't necessarily follow that HE was the partner who infected the plaintiff." "Moreover, a jury may be likely to think that an STD victim...'takes HER chances'." Women AND men are victims in the area of STD's. We get them from each other. Just another example of the law keeping women victims once again.

How Would Things Be Different if We Acknowledged Male Victims?
How would our society be different if we recognized and supported male victims? We would have to acknowledge how gender role conditioning denies boys a rich emotional life and cuts them off from whole parts of their essential selves. We would begin to understand how child-rearing practices in the form of emotional and physical withdrawal from sons "to toughen them up" early in their lives compromises their ability to form secure and nurturing attachments. We would begin to see how male gender itself is a risk factor that can magnify the effects of all forms of abuse and channel it in violent, aggressive and reckless acts directed toward the self or others. We would finally acknowledge the overwhelming research evidence concerning the amount of physical abuse, sexual abuse, psychological maltreatment, neglect and corporal punishment of male children and teens by females, without minimization.
I recently had an experience that I wanted to blog about for my last post of this year. The experience got me to thinking about Moral Courage and how rare it often is. I try not to comment to much as my lack of writing skills becomes glaringly obvious when I do. But I think if more people would stand up and show moral courage in the new year we would have much less of the issues this blog has Video - Female Sexual Abuse of Children
