Talking child abuse

Dear Editor:

We all know that child abuse is happening, so why don’t we try to stop this? Unfortunately we don’t know who is the person abusing the child. There are about 3.6 million reports of children being abused or neglected each year. Fourteen percent of our children experience some form of child maltreatment. Children need help, and we need to do something about it.

Here we have a solution that could help minimize the abuse. We want to create an organization that will be designed to help parents with the difficult job of taking care of their children. This organization will create new ways for parents to take care of their children by doing seminars and activities to create a strong communication between parent and child.

This organization will be created to help any family with difficulties with economic problems. It will get economic support from the local government. The classes for parents will talk about punishment/rewards, sex talks, and drugs with their kids.
