Redefined Child Abuse Term And Our Love Star Heroes


Our definition of child abuse, dysfunctional family, troubled youth and troubled animal differs from the traditional definitions: 

Child Abuse: Believing that all people and animals are someone's child regardless of their age, we define child abuse to to include anyone regardless of age (baby, toddler, school-aged, teens, adults, elderly) who is or has been living in a dysfunctional family situation; being bullied/bullier; troubled and confused; emotionally or physically tortured and hurt or killed by mass shooting, family, strangers, society, etc.; sexual abuse and other events and situations, etc. 

We have also divided Child Abuse by age categories for both animals and people (ages refer to people's ages--must convert to get animal ages):  Neophyte Child Abuse-ages 0-11 years; Adolescent Child Abuse-ages 12-18; Adult Child Abuse-ages 19-64; and Elderly Child Abuse-ages 65-100 +.

THEIR JOURNEY (CHILD ABUSE GALLERY AND VIDEO) located on the menu shows the types of child abuse areas-emotional, financial, exploitation, bullying, parental, sexual, neglect, abandonment, ritual servitude, family violence, child labor, educational, incest, child marriage, legal system, cyber-bullying,police, human trafficking, stranger abduction, child pornography, domestic bride burning, DUI, legal system, religious, etc. for the different child abuse categories. A short description of the problem is also included. 

Dysfunctional Family: A dysfunctional family creates an environment that predicates multiple forms of child abuse, either directly or indirectly, towards everyone living in the home. This includes animals. A person or animal living in a dysfunctional family may be able to develop as a healthy individual with no significant scars, emotionally and/ physically, that drastically hinders their lives.

Troubled Youth: Troubled youth is defined as any child who has not been able to conquer/control or manage the At-Risk environment in which they live in. We are using First Family Aid-Help for Teens definition for At Risk: “We believe any child that grows up in this world as “At-Risk” in some way. Children will be exposed to “sex, drugs, and rock’n roll” at a very early age.  Teens will know other kids that do drugs, drink alcohol, or smoke cigarettes.  Some parents will do all they can to raise their kids right – and their kids may still make poor choices.” 

We believe that the key to troubled youth and “At-Risk” is their abilities to make the correct choices. There are many factors that can affect a youth's choice, including child abuse, dysfunctional family, self-sabotaging behaviors, need to be loved or feeling unwanted, etc. These factors are what may or may not turn youth to sex, drugs, alcohol, etc., which in turn, puts them on the road of either becoming or having become a troubled youth.

Troubled Animal: Refer to troubled youth.

The difference between child abuse and dysfunctional families’ child abuse is the term multiple. Furthermore, the term dysfunctional families coincide with child abuse. In other words, if you have a dysfunctional family, you will also have some form or all forms of child abuse. However, child abuse does not have to coincide with the dysfunctional family. Child abuse can be performed by one or more parties in a functional or unimpaired family (example-Uncle Joe has been raping his niece Sarah ever since she was 6 years old. Sarah’s mom and dad are loving parents and have no knowledge of the rape until Sarah turns 13 and finally confides in her mom).
