Should You Report an Abusive Parent?
Dr. Phil believes that if you stand by silently while abuse is occurring, you are a party to it. Get involved and be willing to say something if you see a parent doing the following to a child:
- If you see an adult shaking a child.
- If you see an adult striking a child with clenched fists.
- If you see an adult taking frustration out on a child physically.
What to do if you witness child abuse.
