Community gears up for Child Abuse Prevention Month

Community gears up for Child Abuse Prevention Month

And the week will wrap up Friday, April 7, with a community engagement carnival outside the clinical services building at the Jeff Gordon Children's Playground from 4 to 6 p.m.

The focus should be on finding ways to prevent abuse before it occurs and to protect children who have been in an abusive situation, the release stated. Prevention education is one tool that a community can use to prevent, specifically, child sexual abuse. "Our goal is to provide community awareness about child abuse and the fact that April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month".

On hand at the launch were members of the National Child Protection Council, Department of Social Services, Urban Renewal Social Workers and Suspected Child Abuse and Neglect Program (SCAN).

"You can purchase a pinwheel for a suggested ten dollar donation", McCormick said. Children Services is providing lapel stickers to participants and encouraging them to e-mail photos for the agency to post on its Facebook page on Wear Blue Day.

"We really need to make sure our kids are aware of how they can contribute to society and to better society and this is part of that", Peterson said. Afterward, dozens of pinwheels were planted to bring awareness next to a sign with the phone number for the Child Protective Services hotline, which is 800-800-5556. The plastic pinwheels for sale can be purchased at Hatch Pediatrics, Bozeman Health Pediatrics, Bozeman Dentristy, Allegra Marketing Print Mail and the Children's Museum of Bozeman. Many child abusers were abused or witnessed abuse as children.

We can not honestly say she looked to have enjoyed this one much better either, at the time but you have to feel for Wozniacki. Infact she had only played this particular tournament once before, reaching the quarter finals past year .

Children who are abused are 9 times more likely to experience depression, drug and alcohol abuse, as well as commit crimes leading to jail time.

"Child abuse, it's not an easy thing to think about, it's not always an easy thing to talk about". You may be the one to change the course of a child's life forever.

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month and on Monday, Chesapeake did something no other Virginia city has done to inspire prevention.

The 2016 Kern County Network for Children's Report Card shows that in 2014 Kern's substantiated child abuse and neglect rate was 67 percent higher than California's overall rate.

"Unfortunately, we have a job to do in this area", she said. "In the last couple months, we've had several cases of child pornography disseminated". DHS and A Child's Place are working to remind parents and caregivers to keep medicines and other hazardous substances away from children. It's a symbol that children deserve to have a great childhood and a prosperous future. It can make you feel neglected, unappreciated, unloved.
