First, learn ways you can help your family, friends and neighbors before abuse occurs. Most parents want to do the right things for their child. Sometimes problems like loss of a job, immaturity, substance abuse, being new parents or other issues cause stress for a person trying to be a parent.

Be supportive of parents who are having problems. Offer to baby-sit, or help in other ways. Volunteer or start a child abuse prevention campaign at your church or work.

Be alert to the signs of child abuse and neglect. Know what steps to take to help.

What is Child Abuse or Neglect?

Children who are mistreated can be physically abused, sexually abused, or emotionally abused; neglected; or abandoned.

Physical Abuse is any injury resulting from beating, biting burning or otherwise harming a child.

Sexual abuse is any act of molestation against a minor child.

Emotional abuse can be caused by constantly rejecting a child, exposing a child to domestic violence, or threatening child's safety.

Neglect is defined as the failure of a parent to provide food, clothing, supervision, education or medical care for a child.

Am I Doing The Right Thing?

Understanding your role in protecting children is important. You are doing the right thing by getting involved and telling us a child is at risk of abuse or neglect. The children must be able to count on us to make their world safe and secure. After all, it takes a community to protect a child.
