Child Abuse Prevention Month Begins April 1st

Uncategorized

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. This month and throughout the year, the Navarro County Child Advocacy Center encourages all individuals and organizations to play a role in making Navarro County a better place for children and families. By ensuring that parents have the knowledge, skills, and resources they need to care for their children, we can help promote the social and emotional well-being of children and youth and prevent child maltreatment within families and communities.
Protective factors are the strengths and resources families draw on during difficult times to shield them from life’s stresses. Research shows that when parents possess protective factors, the risk for neglect and abuse diminish and optimal outcomes for children, youth, and families are promoted. Major protective factors include knowledge of parenting, knowledge of child development, parental resilience, social connections, and concrete supports.
On April 1st at 1:30 PM, alongside Navarro County District Attorney Will Thompson, Sheriff Elmer Tanner, and Corsicana Police Chief Robert Johnson, Navarro County CAC Executive Director Jenny Bratton will join County Judge HM Davenport to show off their blue.
All are encouraged to wear blue on April 1, 2022, for Child Abuse Prevention and share your ‘blue’ on social media platforms with #NavCasa attached.
