    There are young children and teens who have dealt with various forms of child abuse, such as physical, sexual, emotional abuse and neglect. It is important for these children and teens to know that what their caregivers have done to them is not their fault, they do not deserve to be treated this way by their caregivers, and their caregivers are breaking the law by inflicting abuse upon them. It is critical for any child or teen dealing with abuse to tell a trusted adult as soon as possible about what is going on so that someone can intervene to protect their physical and/or emotional well-being.

    If you are being abused, you can talk to a family member (one who is not involved in the abuse), school counselor, family doctor, private therapist, or call the Child Abuse Hotline at 1-800-792-8610 to report what is happening at home.
