  • Besharov and Dembosky also glossed over how these percentages translate into numbers of children.

  • I agree with the overarching point of Douglas J. Besharov and Jacob W. Dembosky's article, "Child Abuse: Threat or Menace?"

  • Third, Besharov and Dembosky's claim that increased sensitivity accounts for the rise in the number of seriously injured children does not make sense in the context of the patterns of NIS findings, which do provide evidence of progressively heightened sensitivity for more subtle maltreatment cues.
