Preventing Child Abuse: What We Can Do and Why It Matters

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, but this is a year-round problem that needs year-round solutions. And we all can play a part. Jim Hmurovich is President of Prevent Child Abuse America and, in previous work in corrections and child welfare, he witnessed firsthand the devastating consequences of abuse. This difficult topic also has been the focus of much of Marti’s research and speaking, so you won’t want to miss this important discussion about why and how we need to work together to ensure that no child has to suffer the pain of abuse or neglect.

    Have a question…..I can not stand child abuse in any way whether it is physical, neglect, or mental, or emotional. But what happens when it is the child that is abusing the adult? Like for.example the step parent? Then what does that person do when that child hollars abuse against that particular person after he and another kid got into a fight? This person is now be charged with child abuse and it was that adult that was receiving the abuse. But as the courts say…..if the kid says u did it …you did…no questions asked. Is thereagroup out there to help this person against abusers that are children.

    We are sorry to hear about this situation, and though we cannot recommend a specific organization that can provide the support you seek, we would like to recommend that you, or the appropriate person, contact either the Prevent Child Abuse America chapter in your state, and you can find that information at the following link – http://pcadb.cyberwoven.com/public/chapters/index.cfm – or ChildHelp who have staff working their crisis lines 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and can be reached at 1-800-4-A-CHILD. We hope these resources can provide you with some assistance, though please don’t hesitate to let us know if we can be of any further help.
