Child Abuse Prevention Month

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Abuse can present itself in many forms, with child neglect being the leading cause for foster care entry.
At BFF, we have witnessed first-hand how children can struggle as a result of their past traumas. Struggles with behavior, academic performance, and interpersonal relationships are just a few factors that can be passed off as simply “acting out” if not approached and handled properly, and can go unresolved for a lifetime.
As a community, it is crucial to come together and have a voice for those who may not feel comfortable, or be able to, speak up. During this pandemic, detecting signs of child abuse can be more difficult, as children are not carrying our their normal routines of going to school and being around the people who typically report the majority of child abuse cases. The phrase “if you see something, say something” is more important now than ever. Kids’ lives and futures are on the line.
If you are worried about a child’s well-being, please call 1(800)-4-A-Child, or 1(800)-422-4453.
