During this global crisis, children are at a much greater risk for abuse.
It’s an adult’s responsibility to protect children from abuse.
“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 concern.”
– Dr. Jamye Coffman, Cook Children’s Center for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect
During this COVID-19 outbreak, children are more isolated than ever. Children are cut off from school, their support networks, health professionals, and youth organizations. In today’s world, the adults children rely on for help – to recognize and report abuse – can only see them through a virtual environment.
Calls to child abuse hotlines have dropped significantly since the start of the health crisis – and precipitously since schools and organizations have moved to virtual learning environments. Without the caring eyes of a trusted adult, thousands of children are in dangerous circumstances.
