(CBS) From discussions about "tiger mom" mother regularly injects her daughter with Botox, debate about what exactly constitutes child abuse continues.
But what isn't up for debate is the fact that many children are abused in the U.S.
According to U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' most recent 2009 numbers, 3.6 million children (pdf) were reported victims of child abuse. In the same year, 1,770 children are estimated to have died from abuse and neglect.
But these cases, experts say, can be prevented if people start to speak up. And there's no better time than now: April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month.
