Overview

It is indeed sad that it is necessary to explain violence and abuse to young children. I wish all the answers to children’s questions could end with “and they lived happily ever after,” but they don’t.


Violence and abuse are deeply destructive to victims, their families and friends. They destroy a child’s faith in adults. Children need repeated reassurance that they are not to blame. They need to know that a grown-up who does cruel things has a problem. They want to know if they can help make things better.


Children want facts. They feel betrayed when told only half-truths or innuendos. It’s Just Not Fair respects their desire for facts, especially children who are innocent victims. This publication tells children that some people who hurt others get help to learn appropriate ways to handle anger. It tells that a victim can learn to trust again and includes helpful suggestions to follow and numerous explanations seldom written for children.


There are laws requiring adults to report child abuse to the proper authorities. These laws help to identify cases of physical and sexual abuse. This publication deals with all levels of cruelty to children, including mental, emotional and interpersonal abuse. Sexual abuse is a separate topic.


Most abused children are younger than five-years-old. They do not know how to ask questions, are afraid to do so or have no one with whom to talk. Older children, whether abused or not, know that some adults are unkind and hurt others. They see cruel acts on TV and movies, and hear stories or read books and newspapers. The questions in this publication come from years of working with children. No child asks all of these questions or in this order, but they are REAL QUESTIONS. When children receive honest answers, they can begin to understand the struggles and great sadness felt by all member of a family when a child is abused.
