Parental abuse often happens behind the closed doors. How heartbreaking it is to realize that many children have to undergo emotional and physical bullying by the hands of those who are responsible for protecting and guiding them.
This mom had the guts to post it on Facebook. In the video, she is allegedly pouring water on her sleeping baby as an act of "sweet" revenge. She captioned it with “Payback for waking me up all kinda times of da night...” and attached 3 laughing emoji.
She is not laughing any more, as the 33-year-old has been arrested and charged for cruelty against children. The video got into the Facebook group “Where is Baby Kate?” dedicated to preventing and fighting against child abuse.
I understand many cant take seeing these videos, I'm sure none of us can take it but we have to, we have to be a voice for these babies, if we turn our heads who will be there to help them?

The horrified viewers could not believe their eyes! The locals contacted the Sheriff'ss office as soon as possible. Even though the mother explained it was a joke, the baby was clearly suffering, coughing and gasping, as the water was poured directly onto her nose.

That mocking could have ended tragically for an infant.
Here's some to signs of parental abuse:
- Deprivation of necessary sustenance;
- Causing unnecessary suffering and pain;
- Verbal humiliation;
- Neglect and malnourishment;
- Causing physical injuries;
- Forcing to do the hard work;
- Making children compete for parental love, earning it;
- Shaming based on religion.

Sometimes, people have to go through a hard childhood and only to grow up and understand that they had abusive parents. As a baby’s brain development depends on relationships within a family, victims of bullies are at risk of being traumatized for the rest of their lives.
There are ways to help
If you happen to be a witness of child abuse, report the case to the local authorities or contact the National Child Abuse Hotline (available 24/7 at (1-800) 4-A-Child or (1-800) 422-4453).

Tips for a child or teenager who are trapped with bullying family:
- Do not keep it a secret. Tell people you trust about the experience, as school authorities or the police, for example;
- Do not provoke aggressive behaviour in parents;
- Do not step aside when it happens to other members of the family. Bond with those who care about you;
- Be aware of emergency phone numbers. Learn it by heart.
Parental abuse should not be ignored. The best way to fight it is to raise awareness and use the power of our voice to protect those who can’t protect themselves.
