Only girls are sexually abused
Abuse can happen to a child regardless of their age, gender, race, or ability.
Bullying only happens when an individual hits another person.
Bullying can take many forms, but the three main types are:
• physical (e.g. hitting, kicking, theft);
• verbal (e.g. racist or sectarian remarks, threats, name-calling); and
• emotional (e.g. isolating an individual from the activities and social acceptance of his peer group)
• cyberbullying (e.g. bullying using technology)
The signs of abuse can always be seen by another person
Signs of abuse can be physical, behavioural, or developmental. A cluster or pattern of signs is the most reliable indicator of abuse, these can be similar across all the four categories – Physical, Emotional, Neglect and Sexual Abuse. The pdf document in this module: Signs of Abuse gives a comprehensive description of the indicators of abuse.
