April is Child Abuse Prevention Month

Contributed

April is Child Abuse Prevention and Awareness Month; a time to emphasize that our children deserve the leadership of the adults (parents, leaders, community) around them to ensure their health, wellness and safety. Attached is a draft proclamation proposal for Parental Alienation Prevention Week / Awareness Day for your review.  This is an important community campaign that links “Parental Alienation” with “Child Abuse” because after all, it is a form of mental abuse that children suffer.

Please show your support for children by taking 10 minutes out of your day at noon April 25 (or any other time during the week) to blow bubbles for love. View our Public Service Announcement here.

We encourage everyone to participate: mayor’s offices, court houses, churches, businesses, daycare centers, schools, libraries, etc.  Children should be encouraged to freely love both parents regardless of their parents’ marital status. You can also create any awareness event during April 21-27, which is Parental Alienation Prevention Week.

Please take photos of your event and activities, and send us a copy or link so we can include it in our 2019 Parental Alienation Awareness Day video clip that will be provided to the governor. Here’s a preview of a previous event.  Please contact bubblesoflove@alfra.org promptly, if you have questions about promoting the “Bubbles For Love” campaign.
