Answer preview

Abuse and neglect of children is a worldwide public health concern. Abuse has many faces, where a child’s sexuality, emotions, basic needs, and physical well-being are compromised. Children who have been exposed to abuse are even at increased exposure to recurrent abuse. Unfortunately, most of the abused children proceed to be abusers in later life. From a Christian’s viewpoint, the Holy Bible talks about the reputation of Jesus in the way he protected and loved children “See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven” Mathew 18:10 (Jenks, 2005). This essay aims to discuss the actions I would take if I suspected that my neighbor was abusing and neglecting their child (Jenks, 2005).
