Overall, the references provided in the letter as evidence that the Watch Tower Society “protects” children are at best insulting if used on a parent whose child has just been molested (i.e. if you’d done all this, it wouldn’t have happened!), and at times the statements made in the quoted publications are downright hypocritical. Consider the following quote, also in the 1993 Awake! article…

Moreover, not all institutional settings are equally impersonal. Schools are much more personal than state courts. Teachers know their pupils better and are likely to care more for them than judges do for the accuseds that stand before them. Punishment in schools can thus be seen as serving a useful educational purpose. It facilitates the move from the jurisdiction of the family to the jurisdiction of the state, teaching the child that punishment is not always inflicted by close people who love one and know one. This is not to say that teachers, like judges, should not inquire into relevant aspects of a wrongdoer's background before inflicting a severe punishment.

Unfortunately, show that over 1,500 children die each year in the United States from child abuse and neglect. In addition, 75 percent of fatal child abuse victims are under the age of 3 years old, and 78 percent of the fatally abused children were harmed by a parent.

White's "inspired" health reform teachings appear to .

It's not the proverbial stranger who poses the most danger to children, but the people entrusted to care for them. And it's not just men who harm children, 54 percent of reported abusers were women and 45 percent were men.

The tide started to turn in 1898, when Dr.

For 2015, there were a nationally reported 683,000 (rounded) victims of child abuse and neglect. The victim rate was 1 in 110 children for reported cases.

White claimed she "saw" the dangers of self-abuse in vision from God.

to respond satisfactorily to the objection that corporal punishment is degrading, clarification is required about whether the term "degrade" is taken to have a normative content, or, in other words, whether it is taken to embody a judgment of wrongfulness. If it is not, then it will not be sufficient to show that corporal punishment is degrading. It will have to be shown that it is unacceptably so before it can be judged to be wrong on those grounds. If, by contrast, "degrade" is taken to embody a judgment of wrongfulness then a demonstration that corporal punishment is degrading will suffice to show that it is wrong. But then the argumentative work will have to be done in showing that corporal punishment is degrading because it will have to be shown that it amounts to an unacceptable lowering of somebody's standing.

Is this an accurate representation?

Neglect is the most common form of child abuse, followed by physical abuse, sexual abuse, psychological abuse and, lastly, medical neglect. Do you think a child you know, or one you see on the playground may be at risk? You may be reluctant to intervene, but a child at risk may be suffering.
