Neglect: What Are We Really Talking About
Engaging the community is a key strategy in preventing child neglect. It is not an easy task, but educating and empowering everyone, from parents to lawmakers and doctors, on the importance of recognizing signs of neglect and understanding the needs of families is critical. Communities need to come together to support one another. More public awareness is necessary to strengthen prevention initiatives and better protect children from the harm that neglect can cause.
