How to Save a Child Abuse Victim's Life


  1. If you’re a neighbor who suspects abuse in a family, report it to your local authorities, be it police, child protection agencies, or family members you witness visiting the suspected victim.
  2. If you’re a teacher who is suspicious of a child’s recent loss of school days, notify the principal, make it a point in meeting with the family, and make a choice of saving a child’s life.
  3. If you’re a friend of a suspected victim, tell your parents of your suspicions.Make them see the reality of your suspicions and help them in getting help for the child that is being abused!
  4. If you’re a family member who has witnessed your niece/nephew's, grandchild’s, or other relative's abuse, call the authorities immediately.The actions of a family member weigh heavy in the decision to investigate the family.
  5. If you’re in an authoritative position, recognize your position to help save lives.If you're a police officer that has been to the house of a reported victim and saw the victim, but had no reason to further investigate, be a human being that investigates on his or her own time. Drop by the house unexpectedly to "check up" on a daily basis. Make it your mission in life to save a life.
  6. If you’re in a social authoritative position and the case is sitting on your desk, investigate.Letting a case fall through your fingers can result in feelings of guilt that you were allowing the child to continually be abused and eventually their death is hanging over your head! But remember that the abuser isalwaysthe person at fault!
  7. If you’re a social worker with too many cases piled on your desk, hand the case to someone who isn’t so busy.Hand it to a police officer or a postman for that matter, just so someone else can take the steps to save a life!
  8. If you’re a wife, watching your child being beaten by your husband or boyfriend, get your child out of that environment.Take her/him to a shelter, send them to a family member or as a last resort, put them up for adoption! Someone is there to help save your child’s life!
  9. If you’re a husband/boyfriend, knowing your wife is abusive; you have to take measures to save that child!Notify authorities; take the child to protective custody or a family member. Saving the child should be everyone’s first priority!

  • Question
    If you're a wife and your husband is abusive, why not just move out and take care of your son yourself while getting a boyfriend that isn't abusive?

    Community Answer
    This is much easier said than done. There are many reasons a person might not leave, chief of which are a fear of being alone and lack of self-confidence. Also, the abuser will often make threats to harm the child or another member of the victim's family, or the victim themselves ("If you ever try to leave, I'll kill you," etc.). These things are also difficult to prove, so it's hard for the police to effectively intervene. You never really know what's going in an abusive relationship if you're not in it.
  • Question
    I am the child getting abused. What do I do?

    Community Answer
    Run. Save yourself. Go to another family member's location or call the police. If you can't run, tell a trusted teacher.
  • Question
    I suffer abuse from my grandfather and no one is willing to or can support me. What can I do?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    If the rest of your family will not do anything, call the police. They cannot and will not ignore you; they will come to investigate the matter ASAP. Talk to the teachers at school or other trusted adults.
  • Question
    I'm getting abused and I can't run away and nobody trusts/likes me at school, what should I do?
    Community Answer
    It's best to tell a trusted adult, such as a teacher. They can help to stop the abuse and to stop any bullying at school. You may feel like nobody likes you, but this probably isn't true. Just reach out and talk to an adult.
  • Question
    Why can't I just kill the abuser?
    Community Answer
    Because that is considered murder, which is illegal. This kind of action could get you in more trouble than if you hadn't even considered it in the first place.
  • Question
    My friend suffers emotional abuse, she says she was called a "mistake" by her family, do I call the cops?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    The police probably cannot (or will not) do anything in a case involving emotional abuse only. Tell your friend to talk to a guidance counselor, or trusted teacher at school. If they don't want to do this, tell the guidance counselor on their behalf.
  • Question
    What do I do if I am being sexually and emotionally abused?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    Tell a teacher/counselor at school immediately, or another trusted adult like a friend's parent. If this is not an option, just call the police/911.
  • Question
    What should I do if I do not know where the person lives, like if I witnessed abuse in a YouTube video?
    Top Answerer
    Report the video, YouTube will take care of it. Police can track the IP of the uploader if necessary.

  • Sometimes the only way to help is to be there for the victims. If you can show a child that what they are experiencing isn't normal they will be less likely to repeat the behaviour as they grow older.
  • There are numerous numbers you could call, and numerous ways to get involved. Just take action in whatever way makes sense for your situation and your life.
  • If you also have children, invite the child to stay the night. The less time they spend at their own home the better.
  • If the authorities are called and nothing seems to be done about it, taking a more active role is imperative! Take note of every event that occurs (Ex: Screaming, slapping, large bruises.). Time and date each event. This will help the authorities later.
  • Trust your gut but search for facts. Offer assistance to those who seem to be struggling and under stress with their children. Offer your time to a child who feels no one cares to listen. Never take the word of a defensive adult who blames the child for unruly behaviours after the child has made an allegation or attempted to reach out. Beware the power of manipulation from those who have hidden agendas. Try to get the child or young person on their own and offer support if needed. To know someone is there and cares is what makes a big difference.
  • Remember that any evidence you have of the abuse is better than none. Even if you think it's irrelevant to the situation, it could be relevant later on in the investigation.
