How do we prevent child abuse before it ever happens?


We can all help Arizona families stay strong by making sure they have:

 

Parental Resilience: The ability to bounce back from stress and cope with challenges in a positive, constructive way

Social Connections: Having friends, family and community that provide emotional support in tough times and help celebrate good times

 

Knowledge of Parenting and Child Development: Information on how kids grow and how to help each unique child thrive

Concrete Support in Times of Need: Access to services and resources that keep a family safe and healthy, such as food, shelter, and healthcare

Social and Emotional Competence of Children: Children know that they belong, know they are loved, understand their feelings and can get along well with others
