*Trigger alert

Today’s word is abuse. Basically, it means the cruel and violent treatment of a person or animal. Synonyms: mistreatment and maltreatment.

Last weekend, I was speaking with a family member and he was reluctant to accept that child abuse exists, especially here in Nigeria.

My main argument was that while it may not always be intentional, abuse – be it physical, verbal, emotional, psychological and sexual –  is a reality and the sooner we start to acknowledge these things, the better.

**The following video illustrates my point exactly but be warned, it has graphic elements.
