Violence Against Children

J.D. Patel (Author)
Synopsis Child abuse and violence against children are two sides of the same coin. It is not a matter for the courts or the law and order authorities alone. It is necessary to invite public demunciation that confirms appropriate norms. Because of the stigma that attaches to conviction and punishment, the criminal law is believed to have a deterrent effect. However, this is not adequate to prevent either child abuse or violence against children. In this context, the old adage, ‘Prevention is nine-tenths of the cure’ comes to mind. This book tries to highlight all the probable kinds of violence that could be inflicted on a child, identification of the potential victims as well as the potential culprits and the various factors that could lead to violence against children. It also traces the sources from where such violence could emanate and the preventive steps that could be taken. The chapters include Child Abuse Defined; Female Perversion and Children; New Generation of Drug-Exposed Young Children: Maternal violence Against Children; Killing of Children; and The Female Carer as Pervert. General readers, sociologists, child counselors, teachers, and educationists and researchers in child development and child welfare will be to add valuable insights to their own perceptions of the subject. It will help them guide their professional activity and also enhance their career skills.
