Abstract: Research has shown that parents and other caretakers who have resources and support are more likely to provide safe and healthy homes for their children. When parents are frustrated, inexperienced, have serious mental health problems, or are facing stressful conditions, they are at higher risk of abusing their children. With the help of family support activities, many families are able to develop positive coping mechanisms and resources needed to raise safe, healthy, and productive children; for example, local schools or family service centers can provide a place for parents to come and socialize while learning more about their children's growth and development. Pediatricians help parents by responding to questions, concerns, or frustrations about their children's behavior. Family support programs such as parent education, home visitation, respite care, and support groups help parents develop parenting skills, understand the benefits of positive discipline techniques, and meet their children's needs. One section of this report describes what organizations can do to promote safe and healthy children, and another section focuses on what individuals can do. A third section considers responses to cases of child abuse and neglect. Attention is given to the national scope of the problem, the long-term consequences of abuse and neglect, its recognition, and its reporting. Information is provided on organizations and programs that promote safe children and healthy families.
