Abstract:
Bangladeshi society defines children in different ways; the Railway Act 1890 designates children up to the age of 12, the Penal code 1860 considers children to be below 12 years, South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) considers girls up to age 20 years as child, Child Labour Act 1993 considers below the age 15 years and The Factory Act 1965 defines child below the age of 16 years. Bangladeshi society punishes children in different form including physical, sexual and emotional abuse or neglect. The term child abuse covers a wide range of behaviour, from actual physical assault by parents or other adult caretakers to neglect of a child's basic needs. In Bangladesh it starts as early as the neonatal period, especially if the baby is female. Abuse to children continues at the schools by unscrupulous teachers, at the family after demise of the mother and at work places. Another important area is child-trafficking and kidnapping of the child for ransom money, to take revenge on the parents or to send the kids to Middle East to be used as camel jockeys. In Bangla community physical neglect involves failure to provide adequate logistics, emotional neglect involves failure to meet a child's basic needs including basic education needs. Physical abuse includes female foeticide or infanticide, battered baby syndrome, housemaid torture, corporal punishment/ school torture, borstals correction centers, child labour and shaken infant. Sexual abuse incorporates sexual gratification by adults through kissing or fondling, oral sex and vaginal or anal penetration. Emotional and psychological punishment, in Bangladesh, includes repeated verbal abuse of a child in the form of shouting, threats, denying a child friend, confinement, restricting a child's movements and degrading or humiliating criticism.
