April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month: Learn 24 Ways to Prevent Child Abuse ... Before it Starts
Date:4/1/2008

BETHLEHEM, Pa., April 1, 2008 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Americans work hard to protect their children, but child abuse and neglect remain at unacceptably high levels with nearly 900,000 U.S. youngsters hurt each year. Since many of even the best-intentioned parents don't know how to prevent abuse and the conditions under which it may come about, the 125-year-old national children's crisis charity KidsPeace is offering free downloadable information packets called, "24 Ways You Can Prevent Child Abuse ... Before it Starts."

During this April's National Child Abuse Prevention Month, parents, teachers and others can go to http://www.kidspeace.org (click on "resources" and "brochures") and find two dozen simple yet effective tips to Make Your Home Safe, Give Your Child Trust and Build Communication, Give Your Child Independence, and Give Your Child Self-Esteem.

"Most parents love their kids and want the best for them," says Dr. Lorrie Henderson, acting president of KidsPeace, which helps thousands of children every day at 65 centers nationwide to overcome abuse, neglect, and the other emotional crises. "Our task now is to help adults identify and avoid the most common situations in which a child may be harmed physically, sexually, or emotionally -- as well as to create the kind of positive, open communications that can serve as an early line of defense when trouble looms."

Just a few of the "24 Ways You Can Prevent Child Abuse," which are explained in more depth online, include the following:

* Establish house rules and be consistent

* Interview your babysitters

* Never strike in anger -- use short timeouts and try not to yell or

use hurtful words

* Teach your children to say "no" to anyone who asks them to do anything

they feel is wrong

* When you feel frustrated, angry or overwhelmed, vent your feelings

positively -- aw
