    Hello, my name is Stephen and I will be your instructor. Lets go with 1 question at a time. "Explain the different forms of child abuse." Well - off the top of my head there is sexual abuse which includes; molestation; rape; sexual assault; and lewd content toward your child, kinsmen, or another other underage (18 for most countries, 12 in some, 9 in areas of the Middle East, 14 in areas of Asia) individual. We have physical abuse which covers violence, physical hitting and bruising, etc. Mental abuse or emotional abuse, which is shamming, degrading, condescending, or otherwise causing your child mental stress; anguish. Child Neglect would be the final form of child abuse. This is failing to provide your child with basic needs (food, water, clothing, a good home, etc.) There are many more forms of child abuse, well over 100, however, these are the basic forms you'll find.

    Now Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS) is usually inflected unknowingly or by early child abuse. This abuse is usually physical. The baby's head is soft, and many of it's features are still developing. Their brain isn't complete and their skull isn't hard like a grown man's skull. So, even little shakes can cause massive damage to their brain. The cerebral cortex (that's where the memories are stored) can be harshly effected, causing the child to permanently suffer from memory loss, a horrible mental-handicap.

    As for physical care, you should never sleep with your infant. You should never give your infant a large pillow or blanket, they can die from suffocation. You should never shake your baby, this includes tossing, swinging, or otherwise moving them in troll movements or putting them in 'bumpy' situations. Never grab tightly and painfully. Never spank an infant, they don't know the difference from right or wrong, yet. To help your child deal with stress, there are many things you can do. Let the child know you're there for them, paraphrase how you feel about their behavior, try to limit stress, let them know you're there for them, talk and try to understand them, and, of course, just be patient and encourage positive behavior.
