Child Abuse Prevention Month

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month! Child abuse is one of those sticky topics many people experience, but no one wants to talk about. We don't want to talk about it, because it means we have to get emotional + vulnerable. Becoming vulnerable is difficult for many of us. Another reason we don't talk about it is because we don't understand it. We don't understand how someone could abuse a child or we understand exactly how someone could abuse a child + that scares us. We might also be confused about what classifies as child abuse. Here is a link to the US Department of Health + Human Services which shares information about child abuse.
