Child Abuse Prevention Month

Child Abuse Prevention Month

The 2020 Child Abuse Prevention Month campaign theme, Stand Up for MilKids,
aims to raise awareness of a key protective factor shown to increase
children's resilience: the stability of a caring adult in their lives -
whether a family member, teacher, coach or another positive figure. A caring
adult with a steady presence in a child's life can be a source of trust and
support, and is especially important for kids with Adverse Childhood
Experiences, or ACEs. Children who grow up with such an adult in their lives
are significantly more likely to develop healthy social behaviors and
positive coping skills that will help them to weather life's difficulties,
including abuse and neglect.
 
If you do have concerns about a child's safety, know what to do. Call your
installation Family Advocacy Program or the Childhelp National Child Abuse
Hotline at 800-422-4453. If you're not sure what to do, you can always
contact Military OneSource at 800-342-9647. Reporting suspected child abuse
is required by law for military chain of command and covered professionals
and is always the right thing to do.
