April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. This month and throughout the year, Athletes For Children encourages all individuals and organizations to play a role in making a better place for children and families. By ensuring that parents have the knowledge, skills, and resources they need to care for their children, we can help prevent child abuse and neglect by creating strong and thriving children, youth, and families in our communities. Research shows that protective factors are present in healthy families. Protective factors are conditions or attributes of individuals, families, communities, or the larger society that mitigate risk and promote healthy development and wellbeing. Promoting the following protective factors is one of the most effective ways to reduce the risk of child abuse and neglect:
• Nurturing and attachment
• Knowledge of parenting and of child and youth development
• Parental resilience
• Social connections
• Concrete supports for parents
• Social and emotional competence of children
April is a time to celebrate the important role that communities play in protecting children and strengthening families," said John Hanrahan, Director Children Programs. "Everyone's participation is critical. Focusing on ways to connect with families is the best thing our community can do to strengthen families and prevent child abuse and neglect."
In support of these efforts, the Children's Bureau, within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, in collaboration with its information service, Child Welfare Information Gateway, the Office on Child Abuse and Neglect, the FRIENDS National Center for Community-Based Child Abuse Prevention, and over 30 national prevention partners, has created the 2019/2020 Prevention Resource Guide: Strong and Thriving Families. The Resource Guide, designed for service providers who work throughout the community to support families, is available online at https://childwelfare.gov/topics/preventing/preventionmonth/resources/resource-guide/.

Emotional abuse is traumatic, and not enough is being done about stopping it! How bad is it? Tara reveals the shocking answer. Read More: Childhood Psychological Abuse as Harmful as Sexual or Physical Abuse http://www.apa.org/news/press/release... “Children who are emotionally abused and neglected face similar and sometimes worse mental health problems as children who are physically or sexually abused, yet psychological abuse is rarely addressed in prevention programs or in treating victims, according to a new study published by the American Psychological Association.”
The attachment theory argues that a strong emotional and physical bond to one primary caregiver in our first years of life is critical to our development. If our bonding is strong and we are securely attached, then we feel safe to explore the world. If our bond is weak, we feel insecurely attached. We are afraid to leave or explore a rather scary-looking world. Because we are not sure if we can return. Often we then don't understand our own feelings.

Toddlers who overhear adults disagreeing can use that emotional information to guide their own behavior, according to research study from the Institute of Learning & Brain Sciences. Learn more about the study here: http://ilabs.washington.edu/i-labs-ne... This re-enactment of the experiment begins with a warm-up trial as an experimenter shows a toy to a 15-month-old boy and then he gets a chance to play with them. Then a second adult, the "Emoter," enters the room. The experimenter shows her how to play with a toy, a strand of beads that make a rattling sound when dropped into a plastic cup. The Emoter calls these actions "aggravating" and "annoying." When the child has a chance to play with the beads and cup while the Emoter watches with a neutral facial expression, he doesn’t play with the toy. This demonstrates that he’s using the emotional information to regulate his own behavior. The experiment was published in the October/November 2014 issue of the journal Cognitive Development with the title, "Infant, control thyself: Infants' integration of multiple social cues to regulate their imitative behavior."

Child abuse comes in many forms, emotional and psychological abuse can be overlooked without the presence of visible marks, however at times can be much more damaging to a child and have life long ramifications.
Pathogenic Parenting is not a new syndrome, unfortunately in divorce, the opportunity exists for children being exploited by unhealthy parents, and risk being caught in the very middle of custody disputes. AFC was started to bring awareness to all matters related to children and this is one that we feel needs more awareness. This information discusses how personality disorders can affect parenting and directly endanger children. It also illustrates how the courts and authorities might not yet be prepared to address this hidden abuse that can inevitably have a significant negative impact on a child's development. It is crucial we bring awareness to this issue and hope to partner with other organizations and help bring this hidden abuse to an end. This information was written by the Ohio Parental Alienation website and has many informative articles and related links.
Dr. Craig Childress's address to the Pennsylvania House Children and Youth Services, he stated that it was absolutely possible to diagnose and treat the Child Psychological Abuse he witnessed in high-conflict divorces.
The narcissistic or borderline parent often successfully turns his or her children against the other parent. In this testimony before the Pennsylvania House Children and Youth Committee, Dr. Craig Childress discusses the mindset and manipulative techniques of the narcissistic or borderline parent. By creating a false narrative, they vilify the other parent, victimize their own children, and needlessly cause the children to reject the "targeted" parent. Dr. Childress did not specialize in high-conflict divorce, but rather in ADHD and early childhood mental health. When he first ran into Parental Alienation in 2008 and observed the abysmal failure of the legal system and the failure of the mental health system, he was appalled by the absence of professional knowledge and competence in the area. He was so appalled that he shifted his career to try to stop the family destruction that he saw and the parenting practices that were producing pathologies in the children.
