"The reality is these offenders are typically in the home or in the immediate context of the neighborhood and we are seeing nearly 100% of the time our child abuse victims know their offenders by name", Chief Standridge said. Reports of child abuse and neglect have risen in Wichita Falls this year.

Monroe Mayor Jamie Mayo is declaring April as Child Abuse Awareness Month at Palace Park on Tuesday, April 3rd at 10 a.m.

It's the only nationally distributed, evidence-based program proven to increase knowledge, improve attitudes and change child protective behaviors. "Together, we can stand up to demand that children are protected and speak out to encourage adults to make it happen in our community".

"They have a lot of stress in their life, they're feeling overwhelmed and they don't understand how their children develop", Bartleson said. Of the interviews conducted at the center, 58 percent involved allegations of sexual abuse; 61 percent of the alleged victims were girls, and 39 percent boys. Child abuse can also affect broader health outcomes into adolescence and adulthood.


On Friday, April 6, Children's Center joins Prevent Child Abuse North Carolina in Wear Blue Day, a day dedicated to bringing awareness to effective child abuse and neglect prevention efforts.

Locally, the Children's Advocacy Center of Lowndes County provides services to children who have been in abusive environments.

April was first declared Child Abuse Prevention Month by presidential proclamation in 1983. We wish their services were not necessary, as do they. Three specific actions - mentoring children and parents, advocating for family friendly policies in the workplace, and donating time and money - relate to child abuse while giving the public tools and resources they need. The pinwheel garden serves as an uplifting reminder of childhood and the bright futures all children deserve.
