The various amounts of cases represent there is in need of more investigation during the trial of the custody of the child. Emphasizing, if the father was reported for domestic violence, the child shouldn’t be living with someone who will do harm to the child. It questions the logic behind the court’s decision about the custody, causing them to rethink and thoroughly examine the case. Bartlow states that, “they are deliberately undertaken by one parent (in most cases, the mother) to ‘alienate’ the child from the other parent (generally, the father)”. The author argues that the “Parental Alienation Syndrome” is biased and generalized tactic
Nor is there any single description that captures all families in which children are victims of abuse and neglect” (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Children and Families Administration on Children, Youth and Families Children 's Bureau, 2003). Research has recognized that there are numerous risk factors or characteristics parents or caregivers may show or have experienced that could increase the likelihood of child maltreatment, e.g., financial instability, participation in social service programs, family factors such as: age, personality, substance abuse, history of maltreatment stress, domestic violence; environmental factors and disabilities (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Children and Families Administration on Children, Youth and Families Children 's Bureau, 2003 & 2015). Because of the data, these commonalities are able to be precursors leading up to child abuse or maltreatment but many times it is hard to measure the severity of them and therefore they may end up undetected (U.S DHHSA
Curry also examines the interactions between the DeShaney family and state officials that could have intervened in the abusive situation. This book brings to life our Constitution’s fundamental values and makes us question: Does the Constitution protect children from their violent parents?

Although the Diane Downs case involved a murder many mothers have chosen their romantic interest over their children. Many women who choose to neglect their children for men usually live in poor conditions such as when a single mother can’t provide for her family she will find a man who can take care of business within the household, usually when single mothers find men to take care of their families the men tend to be abusive and sometimes sexual to children. A mother’s neglect and unwilling to put the needs of her children before her own can turn into a vicious cycle of abuse and substance abuse to forget what the last family line did to them in the past. Male and female children handle neglect and violence in different ways, female children
Contemporary outlooks on child abuse can be traced to the early 1960s, when developments in radiological equipment made it easier for physicians to detect any sorts of maltreatment. But oftentimes parents who mistreat their kids do not go to physicians, rather they just cover up signs of abuse in the comfort of their home. That was the case of Dennis Jurgens, a three year old boy who was abused and murdered by his adopted parents in White Bear Lake Minnesota in 1965. Since the discovery of this case, the course of adoption process, child safety and security, and people’s attitude towards child abuse has changed to some degree. Interfering in other people’s family affair was seen as rude and inappropriate.
This essay is going to explore and compare two cases of parental alienation. Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS) is defined as “programming ("brainwashing") of the child by one parent to denigrate the other” (http://richardagardner.com/ar22). PAS is often regarded as emotional child abuse by psychologists, but when successful, punishing the alienating parent can also affect the child. In the case A.M. v. C.H., a complete reversal of custody and suspension of contact with the alienating parent is awarded while, in Kudrocova v. Kronberger, the judge realized that the family’s lack of “willingness to engage in further therapy” (https://coadecisions.ontariocourts.ca/coa/coa/en/item/21140/index.do) made reconciliation an unlikely outcome, therefore, resulting in no change of custody. While both A.M. v. C.H. and

The incidence of child abuse and neglect has increased dramatically in the past 25 years; the statistics have risen over 130% since 1980 with 1993 being the first year since 1972 in which the number was less than the previous year. Throughout the years child abuse has had a greater impact on the United States and more thorough research has been brought out.

Analysis With this story I learned that human nature is very complex, as our states of anxiety and stress can be indications to react violently, even with our loved ones, without a doubt alcoholism was a very important factor to trigger these actions by the mother, although at any time I am not justified her, much less to hurt a helpless child. Without any doubt this book leaves in me a teaching of how a child will always have the hope that his parents can change for better. As a future employee of an institution that has to do with children, this book has taught me that you have to be alert to any situation that is present in any child, and not judge only by their actions, if not go beyond why Is acting in that way, approach them and be kind to have the confidence to say what happens at home, in case you find something out of the ordinary, no doubt call the police, it is alarming the number of children who are mistreated and abused in their own homes, by their own parents or relatives.
People spend so much time wondering why the women don't leave. Where are all the people who wonder why the men are even abusive? Isn't that where the only blame should be placed” (Hoover 274)?

She not only has to find the courage to escape for herself, but now for her expected newborn daughter.
The Good and the Bad Victims of domestic violence are not at fault for the abuse that is inflicted upon them. A lot of people ask why the victim stayed in the first place, but in some cases the answer is not always so simple. According to Why Do Abuse Victims Stay, “We often put ourselves in the place of the victims and imagine ourselves leaving at the first signs of abuse. But breaking free of abuse is not simply a matter of walking out the door. Leaving is a process.”

Firstly, domestic violence causes a number of effects on family life, it affects how family members relate to one another because they will not feel the appropriate
One of, if not the most important issue regarding child welfare is the role parents play in their children’s lives. A major issue facing the protection of children is lack of proper parenting education. According to research by the National Children’s Alliance “More than 3 million American children are investigated for child maltreatment each year. " The site also states that “Nearly 700,000 children are abused in the U.S annually" and even more alarming statics is that “In 2016, an estimated 1,750 children died from abuse and neglect in the United States.” A major part of this issue stems from parents who overwhelmed or are underprepared to be parents lacking the proper resources and parental knowledge to take care of their children.
