Recognizing Abuse

Children who are abused may show physical and behavioral signs. Abused children may seem:

  • Nervous around adults or afraid of certain adults 
  • Reluctant to go home (e.g., coming to school early or staying late) 
  • Very passive or withdrawn – or aggressive and disruptive 
  • Tired a lot, or they may complain of nightmares or not sleeping well 
  • Fearful and anxious
