Hello, I am looking for someone to write an article on Governmental Punishment for Child Abuse. It needs to be at least 1250 words. Acting in a manner that would harm the child or not acting to prevent harm is thus considered as abuse. The four major types of child abuse include physical abuse, neglect, sexual abuse, and emotional abuse. Children are a very vulnerable group as they cannot defend themselves and more so because the same people who are supposed to take care and nurture and love them are same people causing the worst form of harm to them. So, what should the government do with abusive parents? Should it punish the parents who abuse their children? This is a very controversial debate since punishing the parents would seem the normal thing to do but we cannot forget that children need their parents in order to develop normally hence punishing them will be detrimental to their well being. This paper will try to argue whether the government should punish parents of abused children or not.
