California Child Abuse Law

The State of California has very specific and harsh laws regarding child abuse, also known as “corporal injury on a child.” This law makes it a criminal act to impose physical injury or cruel punishment upon a child. It is important to note that child abuse does not necessarily mean only physical acts. Emotional abuse of a child is also considered child abuse in California and harsh penalties apply for those who abuse children either physically or emotionally.

Signs of Child Abuse

Children may be abused physically, emotionally or sexually. When children are victims of these types of horrific acts, they typically do not know that they are experiencing a crime. Many children believe that they are somehow responsible for their abuse, or that no one will believe them if they speak out regarding their experiences.

Knowing that many children fail to overtly tell a parent, teacher, or family member, some of the signs to watch for that may indicate child abuse could include quickly withdrawing from certain adults, avoiding all forms of physical contact, beginning to behave out of character, having nightmares, fearing going to sleep, running away from home, knowing facts about sexual acts they should not know at their age, having a sexually transmitted disease, or showing discomfort when walking or sitting.
