How do you know if your child is being physically abused or sexually abused? This is a very serious question that we hear from some of our clients in Florida involved in these types of unfortunate abuse scenarios. There are a number of signs to look for in determining whether your child has been the victim of child abuse or child sexual abuse at school or daycare.

Your child may have originally been eager to go to school or preschool. A victim of child abuse or child sex abuse may suddenly become disinterested in school and/or make excuses not to go. The child may suffer from separation anxiety, suddenly experience nightmares, develop a fear of being alone, become withdrawn, or shows signs of depression.

If you notice any of these types of changes in your child’s behavior, you need to investigate immediately. We recommend that you seek the advice of an experienced child psychologist and Florida child abuse attorney as soon as possible to assist you in making this determination. If it is determined that your child has been the victim of any form of abuse, our experienced attorneys at Mallard Perez can help you in pursuing legal action.
