Child abuse is a major health hazard that affects a large number of children. It is important for adults to understand that it is not a child’s job to protect themselves from this risk. Children are often not prepared or able to do so, and they must rely on the adults in their lives to keep them safe. While there is no action that is guaranteed to protect children from abuse, there are steps adults can take to decrease the likelihood of abuse. In order to protect children, adults must become educated about child abuse.If you want to learn more, we offer Educational Opportunities to help adults recognize and report abuse.
