Violence Is The Last Refuge Of The Incompetent!

Physical Abuse towards a child is a behavior when a person commits a physical harm direct or indirect through interacting with a child. For an example, if a child is punished seriously, even if it is not meant to harm the child, this behavior is considered to be a physical abuse and maltreatment.
