Be Informed ... Report It... Be Part Of The Solution

Every April, the nation unites to raise awareness and educate the public about child abuse prevention.

In 1982, President Ronald Reagan declared by Presidential Proclamation that April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Since that time, child abuse awareness activities have been promoted every April throughout America by millions of people throughout the USA.

The Blue Ribbon Campaign has gained national momentum. Love Our Children USA wants you to GET BLUE ... ALL YEAR ROUND!

Play a role in the awareness of violence and neglect against children. Demonstrate your concern and commitment and GET BLUE!

Wear your Blue Ribbon pin and bracelet and others will want to GET BLUE with you.
Itís a powerful way to rally everyone in your community to support public awareness for violence prevention programs that help parents and children.

Love Our Children USA offers you the opportunity to join this national movement in your very own community. You can be the voices for children working to remind everyone about the importance of how we can share in breaking the cycle of violence and neglect against children.

Child Abuse Prevention Month activities every April are one way everyone in your community can play a role in violence prevention. It's a way to rally everyone in your community to support programs that help protect children.

During the month of April, let our Nation's voices for children reaffirm our commitment to protect our children. Organize or join a community group that offers information or assistance to parents and families. Speak out against child abuse and neglect. By changing social behaviors and attitudes for the way we live today, and generating positive change, millions of children can be saved, allowing them to grow up healthy, loved, safe and nurtured.

Love Our Children USA invites you to challenge people to display a blue ribbon in every business, every church and synagogue, every school, every hospital, and in every home... challenge kids and adults to wear their blue ribbons proudly. Please involve your neighborhood and community... ask everyone to respond to this national challenge. Learn about the violence and neglect against children and encourage your friends to do the same. Please join the nation in breaking the cycle.

Each year over 3 million children are harmed and neglected, and those are ONLY the ones that are reported … each year almost 1.8 million children are reported missing – many of them abducted from their own homes and front yards. Every day more than 3 children in our country die from violence and neglect.

Because so many cases of child violence and neglect go unreported, it is estimated that the actual number of child victims is 3 times greater. Children in the USA are more apt to die from violence and neglect than from accidents.

Violence against children comes in the forms of: physical violence, neglect, sexual abuse, emotional and verbal abuse, abandonment, and death. Love Our Children USA is committed to raising awareness, educating the public. We are committed to breaking the cycle!

In order to make a bigger impact it is essential that communities all over the country get involved.
Please take a few moments this month to remind children you know that:
· Violence affects all of us whether we are directly involved or   witnesses.
· It is our duty and the law to report it
· No one ever deserves to be abused.
· Children are never to blame for the abuse and violence that are   inflicted upon them.
· Children should always telling a trusted adult about the abuse

What Individuals Can Do To Help Build The Bridge From Prevention Awareness To Action In Your Community:

It is up to us to build strong communities where families and children live. It is in these communities that children are safest from abuse and neglect. Here are some things you can do as a concerned individual:

Raise The Issue
Call or write your candidates and elected officials to educate them about issues in your community and the need for child abuse prevention, intervention, and treatment programs.

Encourage your local school district and faith community to sponsor classes and support programs for new parents.

Reach Out To Kids And Parents In Your Community.

Supporting kids and parents in your family and in your community helps to reduce the likelihood of violence and neglect against children. Be a good neighbor. Offer to baby-sit. Donate your children's used clothing, furniture, and toys for use by another family. Be kind and supportive, particularly to new parents and children.

Remember The Risk Factors

Violence and neglect against children occur in all segments of our society, but the risk factors are greater in families where parents:

- Abuse alcohol or drugs
- Are isolated from their families or communities
- Have difficulty controlling their anger or stress
- Appear uninterested in the care, nourishment, or safety of
  their children 
- Seem to be having serious economic, housing, or personal   problems

Recognize Some Of The Warning Signs That A Child Might Be Harmed Or Neglected:
- Nervousness around adults
- Aggression toward adults or other children
- Inability to stay awake or to concentrate for extended
  periods
- Sudden, dramatic changes in personality or activities
- Acting out sexually or showing interest in sex that is not
  appropriate for his or her age
- Frequent or unexplained bruises or injuries
- Low self-esteem
- Poor hygiene

Report Suspected Child Violence Or Neglect

If you even suspect abuse or neglect report itand keep reporting it—until something is done. Contact child protective services (in your local phone book) or your local police department.

Other Ways You Can Help

- Build a support network by getting involved in your
  neighborhood.
- Develop friendly relationships with your neighbors and their   children.
- Problems often seem less overwhelming when you have   support nearby.

  association and attend school events.
