Why Support Child Abuse Prevention Through Awareness?
Prevention Through Awareness Works
It has been proven time and time again that the best way to prevent child abuse and neglect is through awareness. Many patterns and forms of abuse and neglect could be eliminated if people only knew how to prevent them.
With Prevention There Are No Victims
Every victim of child abuse and neglect carries with them the physical or emotional consequences of their abuse, sometimes for a lifetime. With prevention, a young life has the opportunity not to be inhibited or scarred arbitrarily by the actions of another.
The Effects of Child Abuse Are Devastating and Lasting
Abuse and neglect of any sort leaves behind mental and physical consequences. Children who are abused are more apt to continue the cycle of abuse. Multiple patterns of unhealthy and negative behavior have been attributed to and manifest themselves more fully and frequently in those who have been abused.
