Support National Child Abuse Prevention Month Initiatives To Help Strengthen Families and Prevent Child Abuse

March 30

Houston, Texas – April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. The Childs Law Firm, P.C. is kicking off its Child Abuse Prevention Initiatives on April 1, 2023. The initiatives will include guest lectures and an annual fundraiser for The Childs Family Law Foundation to support foster care youth and college students who have aged out of foster care.

This month and throughout the year, The Childs Law Firm, P.C. encourages all individuals and organizations to play a role in making Houston a better place for children and families. By ensuring that parents have the knowledge, skills, and resources they need to care for their children, we can help promote the social and emotional well-being of children and youth and prevent child maltreatment within families and communities.

Protective factors are the strengths and resources families draw on during difficult times to shield them from life’s stresses. Research shows that when parents possess protective factors, the risk for neglect and abuse diminish and optimal outcomes for children, youth, and families are promoted. Major protective factors include knowledge of parenting, knowledge of child development, parental resilience, social connections, and concrete supports.

Preventing child abuse is everyone’s responsibility. As we observe National Child Abuse Prevention Month this April, I urge you to take action and become an advocate for our children. Volunteer your time and resources to organizations that provide services to children and families affected by abuse. Educate yourself and others about the signs of abuse and how to report suspected abuse. Speak out against child abuse when you see it happening. Let’s work together to create a world where every child is safe, loved, and protected.

In support of these efforts, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Children’s Bureau, Office on Child Abuse and Neglect, together with Child Welfare Information Gateway, and the FRIENDS National Resource Center for Community-Based Child Abuse Prevention developed the 2023/2024 Prevention Resource Guide. The guide provides more information about protective factors and highlights examples of innovative prevention approaches being implemented by communities across the country.
