Parenting has never been an easy task and, in this changing society, which places more and more demands on us, it has become a much more complex job. Most of us parents intuitively know how to educate and care for our children in most situations in life, but coinciding with the World Day for the Prevention of Child Abusegreat doubts assail me.

The Convention on the Rights of the Child establishes in its article 19 that it is the obligation of the State to protect children from all forms of violence and abuse by fathers, mothers or any other person dedicated to their care. However, this problem is still present in both the leading world powers and in developing countries, and the most curious thing is that it is within the family where children are most abused where, according to statistics, the father and mother represent the highest level of violence exerted towards children, followed by stepfathers, stepmothers and others.

Faced with the need to create mechanisms that prohibit all types of abuse, some countries, including Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Austria and Cyprus, have proposed reforms aimed at totally prohibiting violence against children within the framework of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Child, but they only represent 3 percent of the total number of countries that initially ratified the Convention.

Establishing legal reforms that prohibit all types of violence against children and developing clear policies to prevent abuse and mistreatment of children is the fundamental objective to change social consciousness. But, it is each and every one of us who must make an effort to change and become even more aware of child abuse and abuse. For this reason, I believe that it is essential to have access to the information, opinion and ideas of professionals, whose responses are essential for the psychological well-being of our children.

Although each state defines child abuse and neglect in a particular way, most recognize four types of child or child abuse: physical abuse, the negligence (abandonment or neglect), the sexual abuse and the emotional abuse. Although these types of abuse can occur separately, they generally occur in combination and not in isolation. In many states, parental neglect and substance abuse are also considered a type of abuse. Reporting it is the first recommendation to end these situations, which endanger the well-being of children.
