Abuse To Children

Child abuse takes place in homes, schools, workplaces, institutions and public areas. Among child abuses sexual abuses are difficult to assess because of the sense of shame  they create and  the risks children  face in  reporting them.  In  child beating Bangladesh is in the top position in the world and physical punishment starts in their homes. The main reason for violence against children could be the conflict of interest and power between adults and children. Parents often hit their children out of anger and  frustration,  as  they  have  no  idea  about  the  adverse  impact  of  physical punishment. Among school-going children, 91% reported that it takes place at their schools. The majority of teachers believe that physical punishment is the best means of  discipline  and  they  are  not  aware  about  the  negative  impact  of  physical punishment. About two-thirds  of teachers,  both male and female, punish  students physically. Teachers hit them with a stick or belt or other object; kicking, shaking, or throwing children; scratching, pinching or pulling their hair; and locking or tying them

up are some of the most common examples of physical punishment  and twisted their ears. A child who is constantly exposed to physical punishment faces a risk of losing his/her  self-confidence  and  self-esteem,  and  as  a  result  may  develop  negative personality traits such as being excessively aggressive. Sometimes the female students become victim of sexual behavior from their male teachers. The students from rich and  masterminded  families  find  low  punishment  or  find  no  punishment.  Some teachers who are involved with private tuitions punish only those students who do not involve with private tuitions. Physical punishment is slightly more common in primary  schools  than  in  madrasas  and  less  common  in  NGO  schools. 

Among  those  who  were  working,  one-quarter  reported  that  physical punishment occurs in their workplaces. The employers often tortured physically and sexually abuse the child workers. Sometimes the employers do not pay their wages or pay very less. The employers beat mercilessly the workers in the pretext of theft or when something is broken carelessly by them.
