“Abuse is a crime of isolation. Children are alone at home isolated and not being able to be seen by anybody else that might be able to recognize concerns.”
– Dr. Jamye Coffman, Cook Children’s Center for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect
Imagine a sixth-grade boy, call him Sam.
His school is closed and he’s sheltering in place with his family. He is sitting in front of his laptop, working through an Algebra lesson with his math class. He’s distracted and keeps looking over his shoulder – his teacher chalks it up to learning online, never suspecting he’s scared of his abusive father.
He hasn’t been in school for weeks – there is no nurse to see his bruises, no teacher to see the tell-tale signs of abuse, and no counselor to hear his story. He is completely cut off from his support network.
This is frightening. You can be Sam’s hero.
