Pinwheels for Prevention

This month and throughout the year The CAPC is dedicated to preventing child abuse, ensuring safety, education and treatment for abused/neglected children as well as abusive and at risk parents.

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month.

In the more than 30 years since its formation, CAPC has collaborated with other local agencies and organizations to meet the needs of children and families who are at risk of abuse and neglect.

Our call to action during the month of April is Pinwheels for Prevention – a nationwide campaign that the CAPC is implementing locally in partnership with the Human Services Agency. This campaign is designed by Prevent Child Abuse America and aims to bring awareness to child abuse and safety.

With this campaign, the focus is on community activities and public policies that prioritize prevention right from the start to make sure child abuse and neglect never occur.

This year conversations were around cyber safety. We understand that extremely young children have access to internet based games, apps, and sites. While we cannot change the frequency or restrictions of the usage of internet for these children, we CAN teach them how to be safe.

96% of kids use social networking sites such as Facebook, Instagram, and snapchat which emphasizes the importance of Internet safety. Breaking it down by age lends us these figures:
82% of 5-7 year olds use social media
96% of 8-11 year olds use social media
99% of 12-15 year olds use social media

Not only is the use of the Internet and social networking sites increasing, the average time spent online for children is also increasing, with our older youth spending as much time online as all of the younger groups combined. Spending more time online increases the child’s vulnerability to sexual predators, sexual offenses, and cyberbullying. Consequently, this leaves less time for outside physical activity with friends, joining a sports team, and spending time with family.

These teachings have been welcomed in schools throughout our county and our teams have left with the praise of the administration.
