April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month.
Being the best parent you can be involves taking steps to strengthen your family and finding support when you need it. Parenting isn’t something you have to do alone. When you have the knowledge, skills, and resources you need, you can raise a happy, healthy child.
By working together as a community, we all can play a part in promoting children’s emotional well-being and strengthening families.
