How Can You Help?

How Can You Help Prevent Child Abuse?
You can:

  • Raise awareness of Child Abuse in your community, particularly by wearing a blue ribbon in April.
  • Support parents in your community.
  • Know the difference between abuse and discipline when raising a child. Discipline helps the children to achieve for themselves and feel proud when they do what is right.
  • Explain rules to your child and stick to them.
  • Look for signs of abuse.
  • If a child should talk to you about being abused themselves, listen carefully and tell the child that you are going to report the abuse so that it can be stopped.
  • Most importantly, be a nurturing parent!
