THE ISSUE

In the next minute a child will be a victim
of violence or neglect.


girl

America’s children suffer from a hidden epidemic. Every year over 3 million children are victims of violence and neglect, and those are only the ones that are reported. National statistics from 2012 showed increases in some forms of child maltreatment for the first time in many years. While overall substantiated child maltreatment was flat from 2011 to 2012, there was a 2% rise in sexual abuse and a 5% rise in physical abuse. Neglect declined 3% but child maltreatment fatalities rose 4% from 1,557 to 1,620.

Because this epidemic is so under-reported, the actual number of children being harmed is 3 times greater. Approximately 3.3 million reports and allegations were made involving an estimated 6 million children in 2009. Every ten seconds, violence and neglect against children is reported. Almost five children die every day as a result of violence and neglect. Nearly 600,000 children live in foster care. Almost 1.8 million are abducted. The Center for Disease Control estimates the cost of child abuse for a lifetime is $124 Billion. Read more about child violence and abuse in the U.S. here

teengirlAnd every day 1 out of 7 kids and teens are approached online by predators, 1 out of 4 kids are bullied. Depending on the age group, 43% of students say they have been digitally harassed. 9 out of 10 LGBT students experienced harassment at school and online. 8% of students miss at least 1 day of class per month for fear of Bullies Suicides as a result of bullying are senseless. No one deserves to bullied for any reason.

Monthly Focus

               Summer Safety For Children

Summer is a time for school classrooms and hallways to empty and the awaited anticipation of our childrens' fun and play time.

Yet, emergency rooms across the country call summertime 'the trauma season for kids.' From the heat to pools to bike riding, parents need to be on alert.


Childhood memories are filled with summertime fun which means trips to the beach, ice cream, and rides at the amusement park. While your family enjoys the summer, emergency room doctors don't enjoy what they refer to as the trauma season.

This summer children ages 14 and under will be rushed to emergency rooms nearly 3 million times for serious injuries resulting from motor vehicle crashes, drownings, bike crashes, pedestrian incidents, falls and other hazards. More than 2,500 children will die.

Tragedies rise and nearly half (40 percent) of all unintentional injury-related deaths occur during the summer months (May to August) because children are supervised less, have more free time and are involved in more outdoor activities. While you relax this summer, summer is not the time to relax about safety. Close supervision, proper protective gear, and other simple prevention steps will help keep your child safe.

Trauma is preventable. Keeping your children out of the emergency room takes thought and preparation.
