The most effective prevention of child abuse and neglect involves getting help for parents and families early – before child maltreatment occurs.

Report suspected child maltreatment.

You don’t have to prove abuse to report it; you only have to suspect abuse to make a report. Let the experts make the determination if abuse is occurring. Reporting suspected child abuse or neglect can provide families the opportunity to get resources and assistance that they need.
