Description: Child abuse in Canada transcends all social, economic and racial barriers. It occurs in wealthy families, in poor families, in two parent families and in families with one parent. The victims of child abuse are most often under 5 years of age and typically they have no one to advocate on their behalf. Therefore, it is critical that Early Childhood Educators learn to identify the characteristics of child abuse and to understand the steps to be taken when abuse is suspected.
