    A twisted Arkansas couple who zip-tied their 4-year-old daughter to her bed verbally abused her so relentlessly that the tot believed her name was “idiot,” police said. Jennifer Denen, 30, and her 47-year-old boyfriend, Clarence Reed, were arrested Friday after officers found Denen’s daughter covered in bruises and dried blood. Officers said the pair used zip ties to strap the girl to her bed — a cruel punishment for climbing on the kitchen cabinets, Ozarks First reported. Police were called to the couple’s Hot Springs home on a child abuse tip from the Department of Human Services. When cops arrived,...

    When Officer Steve Dunham met the 7-year-old, the boy was offering to sell his teddy bear.The little guy must have seemed industrious, standing in front of the CVS at the busy intersection of Second and Main in Franklin, Ohio, trying to hawk his toy on July 7. Most children don’t want to part with their stuffed animals. In this boy’s case, it was a lone source of comfort, but he was desperate.He hadn’t eaten in days.Perhaps if he sold the small bear for enough money, he could walk across the street and get a kid’s meal at Subway.

    Father urges soldiers to shoot son during protest. Official PA TV screened Monday the now-famous video of an Arab father who sent his son to be shot by IDF soldiers – but it edited out one of the main parts, and then lied about its existence. The father sent his 4-year-old son to the soldiers, carrying a PA flag, and yelled at the soldiers, "Kill him! Shoot him! After all, you always do that to small children!" As the confused boy neared the soldiers, one of them put out his hand to shake the boy's hand - and the boy...

"I thought about what I found most offensive last week, and it's hard," said Clinton, who would go on to say that what should rally Democratic voters is the "open embrace of conversion therapy in the Republican Party Platform. In other words; child abuse." "Everything I care most about is at risk in this election, given what Trump and Pence are campaigning for," Clinton continued.

The updates are part of a broader overhaul of California's history and social science curriculum. During four hours of public testimony,...

    Some child brides are living with older husbands in asylum centers in Scandinavia, triggering a furor about lapses in protection for girls in nations that ban child marriage. Authorities have let girls stay with their partners, believing it is less traumatic for them than forced separation after fleeing wars. These issues have caused unease in Scandinavia, where authorities risk complicity in child abuse. "Minors seeking asylum are in a difficult situation where they have left their homeland, family and friends, and the partner they have traveled with can be the only person they know and trust in Norway," said Heidi...

    The number of children being given medical treatment for "gender confusion" has risen 1000 percent over the past five years. The NHS's Gender Identity Disorder Service treated 1,013 children, between April and December last year, a freedom of information request by The Sun revealed. In 2010, just 97 cases were recorded. The Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust, based in London, is the only clinic in the U.K. that provides such treatment. But as demand for the treatment increases, the Trust may seek to offer treatment in their Leeds, Brighton and Exeter clinics. At the clinic those under 18 years of...

    In second grade, the family agreed to let Daniel legally change his name and at the boy's request, his school agreed to go along with the change, even letting Daniel use the boy's bathroom. "He is very well-adjusted" but still feels stress because he knows not everyone is so accepting, Heumann said. Daniel "was very anxious before coming out at school," but refused the option of keeping the secret, Heumann recalled. "He looked at me and said, 'Dad, I can't. It's harder to live a lie and not as I am truly than to deal with this anxiety right now.'"

Depraved acts of violence as well as other 'people and community' harming anti-social behaviors often occur when emotionally or physically abused and neglected developing young children mature into depressed, frustrated, sometimes suicidal *(NY Times May 18, 2015...

    Updated | The Vatican has told new Catholic bishops that they have no obligation to report clerical child abuse, according to reports. During a presentation for newly appointed bishops, French Monsignor Tony Anatrella said they don't have a duty to report abuse because it should be the responsibility of victims and their families to go to the police. The comments were first reported by John L. Allen at the Catholic news site Cruxnow.com earlier this week. Anatrella, a psychtherapist and consultant to the Pontifical Council for the Family and the Pontifical Council for Health Care Workers, is known for his...

    The Obama administration failed to protect thousands of Central American children who have flooded across the U.S. border since 2011, leaving them vulnerable to traffickers and to abuses at the hands of government-approved caretakers, a Senate investigation has found. The Office of Refugee Resettlement, an agency of the Department of Health and Human Services, failed to do proper background checks of adults who claimed the children, allowed sponsors to take custody of multiple unrelated children, and regularly placed children in homes without visiting the locations, according to a 56-page investigative report released Thursday. And once the children left federally funded...

    Tami Joy Huntsman and Gonzalo Curiel will stand trial on first-degree murder charges in Monterey County for the death of two children whose bodies were discovered in a Redding storage unit last month. Wednesday afternoon, Jan. 6, Huntsman, 39, and her 17-year-old boyfriend, Curiel, both of Salinas, were transferred to Monterey from Plumas County after a three-minute hearing in Plumas County Superior Court in Quincy. Plumas County District Attorney David Hollister moved to dismiss Plumas' felony torture and child abuse charges against the pair. He said it would be more appropriate for them to be tried on those charges and...

    Octavius Humphries' and Seth Smiley's story began on Christmas Eve 2010. They'd met online and, despite a 19-year age difference, agreed to a first date on Christmas Eve. Octavius describes it as an "amazing" first date. And then Seth told him his mother was expecting the two of them for Christmas dinner. "I just thought, nobody really should be alone on Christmas," Seth says. "Me being black and you being white and the age difference," Octavius says, "I thought that this was just going to be a recipe for disaster." But Octavius instantly lit up the house, Carole remembers. "And...
  • Video of 'martyred' child used for recruitment by Al Qaeda-linked group

    WASHINGTON — Al Qaeda allies running terror camps for tots on the Afghan-Pakistan border are using video of a boy “martyred” in combat to recruit jihadis. The apparently lifeless body of the child, an Uzbek boy younger than 11, is the focus of the grisly half-hour video by the Islamic Jihad Union — a radical Uzbek group practically indistinguishable from Osama Bin Laden’s network, according to U.S. officials. "In a fierce battle in Waziristan between the soldiers of Allah and the friends of Satan, Abd al-Rahim was wounded by an arrow," says an Uzbek narrator, referring to a bullet or...
