Physical abuse is a physical injury which can cause a result such as punching, beating, kicking or otherwise that harming the children. Such injury is considered abuse regardless of whether the caretaker intended to hurt the children. Forms of physical abuse included acts of violence which are deliberate and can injured or sometimes kill the children. Signs of the abuse likes broken bones and burn marks on child`s body. Next, let’s we proceed to the emotional abuse. Emotional abuse is a pattern of behaviour that impaired a child`s emotional development.

Emotional abuse can be difficult to pin down because there are no physical signs to look for. Emotional abuse generally occurs when the yelling and anger go too far or when a parents constantly threatens or dismissed a child until a child`s feelings are broken. After that we go to neglect.

Sexual means the involmentary of developmentally immature children or adolescents in sexual activities. Sexual abuse is any misuse of children for sexual pleasure or gratification. This sexual abuse included activities by parents or caretaker such as rape and exploitation through prostitution or the production of pornographic materials.
