Child abuse, neglect reports up significantly

Oneida County Declares April Child Abuse Awareness Month April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month

This morning during a proclamation Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente officially recognized the month of April as child abuse prevention awareness month.

Notice the first signs of anger: It's important to remain calm when you discipline your children.

The Tyler and Wetzel County Family Resource Networks are local coalitions of people working together to better meet the needs and improve services for children and families in their communities. Both parishes are far less populous than Jefferson Parish (112 children), East Baton Rouge Parish (85 children) and Orleans Parish (26 children), which using logic one would assume to have more cases of such wayward children. Unfortunately, children are sometimes exposed to extreme and sustained stress like child abuse and neglect, which can undermine a child's development.

People around the Central Coast are planting pinwheels to signify child abuse prevention.

The organization works closely with police, advocates and agencies and works to shield children from their perpetrators, she said, whether in court or at home. "Boy child abuse instances are brushed under the carpet for various reasons".

"We at Face It understand that ending child abuse requires action by our leaders in Frankfort and thoughtful programming by nonprofits in each Kentucky community, like the Family Nurturing Center in Northern Kentucky".

"The Pinwheels for Prevention program encourages and empowers community members to get involved and joins us in our effort to end child abuse in Oswego County".

"It's not "stranger danger" like we spent most of the 90s learning and teaching", Barnett said. "The worst part is, instead of standing by the child, parents try to silence the matter by asking the child not to speak about it to anyone", he said.

The CAC has planned various activities throughout the month of April to help bring awareness to child abuse.

Share this article with your social media circle of friends to let them know you care about protecting children. "It is more often than not those closest to us". "If they see something they are concerned about, look a little closer".
