  • Parents
  • Step parents
  • Parent's partner
  • Siblings
  • Relatives
  • Caregiver
  • Teacher, tutor
  • Boyfriend / girlfriend
  • Family friend

Child abusers are not easy to identify. However, parents, guardians or caregivers involved in abuse may display certain patterns of behaviour and emotion. These could be cause for concern especially if the child displays signs of abuse.
