3. Answer key
Anon-experimental study was carried out to assess the level of knowledge of
mother regarding child abuse in selected urban area in Jabalpur (MP)

The objective of the study were :-

1) To assess the knowledge level of the urban mother on child abuse.

2) To find out the association between the knowledge of mother regarding child
abuse and their demographic variable.


The research design adopted for this study was one group knowledge assesses non
experimental design. 40 urban mothers were selected by conviencesampling
technique. A self-administered questionnaires was used for data collection, which
consist of part 1 and part 2 .

Part1 - consist of socio demographic characteristics of the sample information

related to child abuse.

Part 2 -The knowledge items related to child abuse were included

The pilot study was conducted 18 March 2016 to assess the feasibility and
reliability of the tool.

Data were collected on 18 March 2016 by using self administered questionnaires.

The collected data were analyzed by statistical tests such as percentage
distribution, mean, standard deviation.

Child abuse is most often to the problem besetting families which can elevate the
risks to children .these problem are complex and inter connected, holistic responses
.child abuse and neglect has begun to demonstrate linkages between maltreatment
and long –term adverse effect and long term physical, and behavioral effects on
children; early victimization portends future difficulty for victim and a higher
properly for problem behavior as juveniles and, later as adults.


Child is human the stage of birth and puberty .The legal definition of “child
”generally refers to a minor known as a person younger then the age of majority
‘child” may also describe a relationship with a parent or authority figure , or
signify group membership in a clan ,tribe , or religion ;it can also signify being
strongly affected by a specific time ,place or circumstances , as in a child of nature
or a child of the sixties


Abuse is the improper usage or treatment for a bad purpose often to unfairly or
improperly gain benefit and to treated with cruelty with cruelty or violence’s
especially and repeatedly ,


Physical abuse is non-accidental injury ranging ,from minor bruises to server

fracture or death as a result of punching , beating, kicking ,biting ,shaking,
throwing stabbing ,choking [with a hand ,stick , strap or other object ],burning or
otherwise harming a child that is inflicted by a parent caregiver ,or other person
who has responsibility for the child to such injury is considered abuse regardless of
whether the caregiver intended to hurt the child physical discipline such spanking
or padding is not considered abuse as long as it reasonable and causes no bodily
injury to the child .


The persistent emotional maltreatment of a child such as to cause severe and

persistent adverse effect on the child’s emotional. It may involve conveying to
children that are worthless or unloved ,inadequate ,or valued only insofar as they
meet the needs of another person .It may include not giving the child opportunities
to express their views ,deliberate silencing them or” making fun” of what they say
or how they communicate .It may feature age or developmentally inappropriate
expectations being imposed on children . These may include interactions that are
beyond the child’s developmental capability, as well as overprotection and
limitation of exploration and learning, or preventing the child participating in
normal social interaction. It may involve serious bullying (including cyber
bullying), causing children frequently to feel frightened or in danger, or the
exploitation or corruption of children. Some level of emotional abuse is involved in
all type of maltreatment of a child, though it may occur alone. This definition
includes witnessing domestic violence.


Forcing or enticing a child or young person to take part in sexual activities, not
necessarily involving a high level of violence, whether or not the child is aware of
what is happening. The activities may involve physical contact, including assault
by penetration (for example, rape or oral sex) or non-penetration acts such as
masturbation, kissing, rubbing, and touching outside of clothing. They may also
include non-contact activities, such as involving children in looking at, or in the
production of, sexual Image, watching sexual activities, encouraging children to
behave in sexually inappropriate ways, or grooming a child in preparation for
abuse ( including via the internet)21. This would include prostitution and sexual
exploitation of a child for commercial or financial gain. The guidance also
recognizes that other children, and women, may perpetrators of child sexual abuse.


A persistent failure to meet a child’s basic physical and/or developmental needs.

Neglect includes failing to provide for a child’s health, education, emotional
development, nutrition, clothing, shelter, safety and safe living conditions, and
includes exclusion of the child from the home and abandonment. It is different
from poverty, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), because it
happens when there is failure to provide the resources to meet a child’s needs if
those resources exist or should be available. Neglect


 A parent or guardians failure to provide adequate food, clothing and shelter

such excluding a child from the home, abandoning them and leaving them
 Failure to protect a child from physical or emotional harm or danger.
 Failure to ensure the child has access to appropriate medical care and
treatment when needed.

Neglect is defined development so that a parent or guardian developmentally

failing to do or to provide certain thinks will have a detrimental impact on the
development or safety of young child the but not necessarily on an elder child.

Child abuse is a state of emotional physical, economic and sexual maltreatment

meted out to a person below the age of eighteen and is a globally prevalent
phenomenon. However, in India as in many other countries there has been no
understanding extent magnitude and trends of the problem . The growing
complexities of life and the dramatic change brought about by socio- economic
transition in India have played a major role in increase the vulnerability of
children to various and newer forms of abuse.

Child abuse has serious physical and psycho-social consequences which

adversely affect the health and overall well being of a child. According to WHO
“child abuse or maltreatment constitutes all forms of physical and/or emotional ill-
treatment, sexual abuse neglect or potential harm to the child’s health, survival
development or dignity in the context of a relationship of responsibility, trust or

Child abuse is a violation of the basic human right of a child and is on outcome of
a set of interrelated familial, social psychological and economic factor.The
problem of child abuse and human right violation is one of the most critical matters
on the international human right agenda. In the India context, acceptance child
right s as primary inviolable right is fairly recent, as in there universal
understanding of it.

The issue of child abuse assumes extraordinary significance due to the

rising number of child abuse cases reported and unreported in the country despite
the existence of a plethora of national and international legal as well as policy
commitments and conventions.

The forms and dynamics of child abuse have undergone major changes in
the new millennium, adding multifaceted dimensions, complexities and challenges.

According to World Health Organization (WHO), one in every four girls

and one in every seven boys in the world are sexually abused more than 4,00,000
children in India are reported to be victims of commercial sexual exploitation.
According to the (American) National Committee To Prevent Child Abuse (1997)
state that neglect represented 54% of confirmed cases of child , physical abuse
22% sexual abuse 8% emotional maltreatment 4% and other forms of maltreatment
12%. The united states department of health and human services reports that for
each year between 2000 and 2005 female parents acting alone were most likely to
be perpetrators of child abuse .

American psychiatric association state that approximately 15% to 25% of

women and 5% to 15% of men were sexually abused when they were children.
Most sexual abuse offenders are acquainted with their victims, approximately 30%
are relatives of the child, most often brothers, father, uncles or cousins around 60%
are other acquaintances such as friends of the family ,baby sitters , or neighbors
strangers are the offenders in approximately 10% of child sexual abuse cases most
child sexual abuse is committed by men, studies show that women commit 14% to
40% of offenses reported against girls.

A survey conducted by the National center for the child Abuse and
Neglects (1996) in the united states had recorded 1.9million of child abuse cases “
The most common form of child maltreatment is neglect physical abuse , sexual
abuse and constitute, approximately 25%, 13%and 5% of confirmed maltreatment
cases, respectively.

KEMP.AM, ET.AL. (2006)

A study conducted in delhi on child abuse, showed an increasing incidence of child

sexual abuse form 110 cases in 1990 to 210 cases in 1995. Study finding revealed
that the children in the rural communities are more likely to be abused or neglected
than children in rural.


Due to increased prevalence, lack of awareness and lack of research study on

knowledge of child abuse among mother in India so the researcher select this study
to create awareness and preventive aspects of child abuse in India.

In many cases, child abuse leady to serious emotional disturbances during

and serious adulthood .one of the disturbing aspects

If a child fears doing anything new because of the change that it will lead
to a violent attacks or because an abusive parent keep extremely tight control over
children ,the child will lose his or her sense of curiosity and wonder at the world
and will stop trying new thing and exercising his or her mind .

That child will never achieve his or her intellectual potential the study was
undertaken few attempt have been made to asses knowledge of rural mother
regarding child abuse

1) Michaelunger 20 December 2012. A study was done to examined the

relationship between resilience risk, and the service use pattern of adolescents
with complex needs who use multiple formal and mandated services such as
child welfare, mental health juvenile justice and special educational support. In
this study youth who were known to be multiple services users who were
between the ages of 13 and 21 are participated.

Participants completed a self. Report questionnaire administered individually

path analysis was used to determine the pattern of service use and services use
satisfaction among participants . The finding shows that there was no
significant relation between service use history and resilience or any of the
three functional outcomes. Service use satisfaction, a measure of an adolescents
perception of the quality of the services received, did however show a string
positive relationship with resilience. Conclusions result show that resilience is
related to services used by youth. Coordinating services may not increase

programs they deer use of a parenting program that has a base of empirical support such as
IY and sufficient intensity and duration, is likely to make substantial changes in

parents child-rearing practices.
