How can you protect kids from child abuse?
• If your child is old enough, talk about child abuse with them. Explain that abuse comes in many forms, not just bruises. Bullies, and in more recent years—cyber bullies, inflict harm on self-esteem.
• Get to know your children’s friends and their friends’ parents.
• Make sure you know where your child is at all times.
Child abuse can cause physical, emotional and psychological harm. Three million cases of child abuse are filed each year, according to the Boy Scouts of America.
