Today I read an article that was called "Boulder woman accused of burning child with cigarette" By Vanessa Miller The Camera and it was about a woman he supposedly burned another child with a cigarette; it made me start thinking how this affects the world and its child abuse problem. Child abuse is cruel and needs to be put to a stop. Abuse is emotionally and physically scarring and some can lead to future abuse. Abuse never should be used on anyone. And if this woman was abusing this child, he may lead to future abusing if this was to continue. Child abuse is a serious issue that has long term and short term effects. It must be ended.
