Child Abuse

Child abuse is any form of physical, emotional and/or sexual mistreatment or lack of care that causes injury or emotional damage to a child. Child abuse happens to both girls and boys. The misuse of power and/or a breach of trust are part of all types of child abuse.

Dating Violence

Each one of us at every age deserves to be in healthy relationships where we feel safe, trusted and respected. But studies in recent years show that between 20 to 30 per cent of North American boys and girls will experience some form of physical or emotional abuse in a dating relationship.

Kids' Safety Online
