    • How would you know what to look for, physical marks, behavior?
    • Responding to a child telling you about abuse and neglectful situations.
  • Sharing a message and educating the public about child abuse and neglect
    • Developing an effective message to communicate in your own network.
    • Neglect is also abuse but it does not always leave a mark you can see.
    • Social media tools to remind people to prevent abuse and neglect.
  • Creating community support and partnerships to prevent child abuse and neglect
    • Finding already established support groups in your community.
