A new report from UNICEF says that violence against children knows no boundaries.
Among the statistics that back up that statement:
Approximately 300 million children around the world between the ages two and four are subject to physical punishment or verbal abuse from their parents or caregivers.
Every seven minutes, an adolescent is murdered.
By the time they reach age 19, fifteen million girls have already experienced forced sexual acts, including rape — inflicted, for the most part, by people they know.
