Facts About Child Abuse
- 84 percent of prison inmates were abused as children.
- One in three girls and one in five boys are sexually abused by an adult at some time during childhood. (Most sexual abusers are someone in the family or someone the child knows, not the proverbial stranger with a lollipop.)
- More than 80 percent of abusers are a parent or someone close to a child. Child abuse is far more likely to occur in the child’s home than in a day care center.
- One in thirteen kids with a parent on drugs is physically abused regularly. (Drug and alcohol abuse in the family makes child abuse about twice as likely.)
- One out of ten babies born today are born to mothers who are abusing drugs. Drinking and smoking heavily during pregnancy also endangers the health of unborn children.
In the US Alone:
- Approximately 800,000 children are the victims of child abuse and neglect.
- Child abuse is three times more prevalent than all childhood cancers combined.
- More than 75% of the children killed were under four years of age.
- Approximately 80% of all child abuse is perpetrated by parents.
What actually is child abuse?

So many children than ever before are victims of one form of abuse or the other. Perpetrators consistently device new ways to execute their devilish acts without getting caught or suspected.
