There are many people who involve the children in bad works like drugs, sexual  participation and force them to do bad things .

Furthermore children are very innocent and are most vulnerable, least powerful and they are unable to protect themselves from the abusers. Child abusers often know how to emotionally manipulate  their intended victims , gaining their trust well in advance of the actual abuse . furthermore there were many children who were raped and killed in these following years , some of the following cases have occurred in workplace the issue is pending and children are unsafe  According to the International Society for the Prevention of Child Abuse (ISPCAN), overall ust41.69 percent respondents were sexually abused in one form or another.

As the children are the future of the nation and it is a rising issue and media can also play an important role in it by creating awareness  and the government needs to establish stronger laws regarding children. If once better laws are made against child abusers children can be protected. As

Every child deserves to be safe in childhood and this is an achievable goal. to save the children from this scourge of abuse. And children should be look after make safe and child abusers must be punished for abusing the children .
