The following videos were found on YouTube. These were not filmed in the United States, and it is unlikely that they would have aired in the U.S. even if they had been. This is what it really looks like though. It is hard to watch, hard to hear about, and definitely hard to admit that it could exist for a child you know.
Approximately 3.6 million reports of child abuse are made each year in the U.S. and more than 6 million children are involved in those cases. Approximately 81.2% of abusers are someone the child knows. More than 1500 children died from injuries they suffered at the hands of an abuser in 2010. Keep that in mind the next time you fail to report that a child may be in danger.
