In response to a Huffington Post article describing a new JAMA study on the state of child abuse and neglect, Prevent Child Abuse America released a Statement today - here - "Common Definitions, a National Plan, and Child Well-Being." We hope you will take a look and let us know if you have any questions. We have also pasted an excerpt below.
responsibility at Prevent Child Abuse America is to remind you that we
all play a role in the lives of children and their families. And we do
that. Our job is share with you the various roles you can play, such as
knocking on your neighbor's door and asking them if they need help with
babysitting, or volunteering at a local child-serving organization. And
we do that as well. And yet, when the Huffington Post describes a new study
by JAMA that covers an array overwhelming statistics about the state of
child abuse and neglect today as it did this week, we have to ask
ourselves what more we can all do?"
