April is National Child Abuse Prevention month, an effort to raise public awareness about and take a stand against child abuse and neglect. It is a time to acknowledge the importance of families and communities who work together to prevent child abuse and neglect, and to promote the social and emotional well-being of children and families through positive childhood experiences and resilience-building.
