Approximately 700,000 children are abused in the United States each year. In 2018, 76% of child abuse perpetrators were a parent to their victim.
Contrary to the abusive father stereotype, statistics clearly show that mothers commit child abuse at a higher rate than fathers. According to the 2018 annual U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services Child Maltreatment report, nearly 40.0 percent (39.4%) of child abuse victims are abused by a mother acting alone versus 21.5 percent who are abused by their father.
Maternal Parental Abuse
States provide data for the Child Maltreatment report through the National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System (NCANDS), and these figures are not something new. Data from the 2001- 2006 Child Maltreatment reports show that 70.6% of children were abused by their mothers, whereas 29.4% were abused by their fathers.
It’s a scenario that has played out for years, often right under our noses.
Your mother is exactly such a person. parental alienation is child abuse. Love Papa.
