Prevent Child Abuse America in The Miami Herald.

Following last week's appearances by Prevent Child Abuse America President & CEO James M. Hmurovich in a variety of media outlets, we are pleased to let you know that Prevent Child Abuse America has been quoted in a recent article in The Miami Herald regarding Miami Beach's new law banning anyone eighteen or older without a child from playgrounds in Miami Beach.

Ben Tanzer, a spokesman for Prevent Child Abuse America, is ambivalent about the approach. It's hard to argue with any policy that could protect kids, Tanzer said, but the no-adults policy could contribute to a needless and unhealthy fear of strangers.

"Children are mostly abused by family and friends, not by strangers,'' Tanzer said. "We want kids to be safe . . . but there is a much larger dialogue that needs to take place between adults and their children.'"
