Help End Child Abuse

Every day, nearly four children die in the U.S. as a result of child abuse and neglect and over 27,000 children are exposed to domestic violence.

Protecting kids requires us all to work together. Please read the signs of child abuse, below, and pledge to take action to keep kids' lives free from violence.
I pledge to: 1) Call the police (911) immediately if I suspect that a child is in immediate danger. 2) Learn and watch out for the 10 common signs of child abuse: * Unexplained injuries. Visible signs of physical abuse may include unexplained burns or bruises. * Changes in behavior. Abused children often appear scared, anxious, depressed, withdrawn or more aggressive. * Returning to earlier behaviors. Abused children may display behaviors shown at earlier ages, such as thumb-sucking, bed-wetting, fear of the dark or strangers. * Fear of going home. Abused children may express apprehension or anxiety about leaving school or about going places with the person who is abusing them.
