dc.description.abstract Child abuse includes physical, sexual and emotional maltreatment or neglect of a child such that the acts or omissions harm or threaten the health, development or welfare of a person under 18 years of age. Child abuse is a major pediatric, psychiatric, and social problem. Kempe et al. first described the Battered Child Syndrome in 1962. The Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) was ratified unanimously in the United Nations General Assembly in 1989. The CRC addresses the legal and social status of children, who lack the full autonomy of adults, but have important rights as described in the Convention. Korea adopted the CRC in 1991. Adopting the CRC was an important milestone in our nation's efforts to confront child abuse. The principles of the CRC are that individuals or nations should provide for and protect children's safety and healthy development and involve them in decisions about their lives. (Author Text) en_US
