"One of the most prevalent misconceptions about maltreated children is that the abuse will be visible or that a child will talk about the maltreatment. While some children who are the victims of physical abuse do have visible marks, many victims do not. Victims of sexual and psychological abuse oftentimes have no physical symptoms. In addition, many, if not most, victims do not tell about their maltreatment." - Monica McCoy, co-author of Child Abuse and Neglect, 2nd Edition.
