Have you ever heard or seen child abuse, it is a sad thing isn’t it? Some people have to suffer with being the victim of this everyday. If you ever see or are the victim of this take a stand and tell someone. Child abuse can be found in books as well, for example Forged by Fire. In Forged by Fire This is a very sad thing that really should not happen to anybody. Child abuse can slowly become less common if you tell someone.
I know it is easier said than done but by telling someone really does help. Nobody wants to live a life of misery, so help them and help us become a better place for children of all ages.”Child abuse can be a result of physical, emotional, or sexual harm.
While child abuse is often in the form of an action, there are also examples of inaction that cause harm, such as neglect” (www.psychologytoday.com). “Each year in Ohio, child protective service agencies across the state substantiate more than 30,000 cases of child abuse and neglect. More than 65,000 women were abused by an intimate partner in their home” (www.cleveland.com). That is more than 1,950,000,000 people being abused in Ohio.
“Victims of this might have injuries, have Fearful behavior, Sudden change in self-confidence, and/or Failure to gain weight” (www.psychologytoday.com). Sadly there are many types of abuse, Physical abuse, Sexual abuse, Emotional abuse, and neglect etc.. Some people abuse children because of substance abuse, the abuser was abused before, anger, and /or depression etc.. “In Forged by fire many character’s got abused.
Gerald, Angel, Monique, and if u want to include animals, Tiger. When Gerald was little he got abused by Monique. He was neglected, he got physically abused, and was a victim of child endangerment. Monique would expose him to drugs etc., she would hit him and one time she burnt him with a cigarette lighter, she wouldn’t changed his diaper etc.
When he was older and Aunt Queen died he had to move in with Monique, Angel, and Jordan and Jordan would hit him. Angel was sexualy and physacally abused by Jordan. He touched her in an inappropriate way, and he hit her. Monique was physically abused by Jordan because he hit her alot.
Gerald and Angel became stronger and smarter and Monique Didn’t realize what Jordan was doing to them and her was bad until she got hit because Jordan’s A.C. went missing, and she realized that what he was doing wasn’t good”(Forged by Fire). Forged by fire is very realistic. Sadly, everything that happened in Forged by Fire can very well happen in real life. The way people are abused in this book happens in real life, and the way people die happens in real life too. I wish there wasn’t but there are people in this world like Jordan as well.
The best and most obvious thing is that there are people like Aunt Queen (sweet, loving, nice, and open to say what she thinks). That is how Forged by fire is very much like the real world in many ways.In conclusion, There is a lot of abuse in this book and in real life. Forged by fire is a very realistic book in many ways, some good and some unfortunately bad.
Abuse is very common but can be fixed by people speaking up for each other and themselves. I know, as I said before, it is easier said than done. Forged by fire shows what some kids have to go through and the statistics i wrote about are really devastating.
