Anyone who witnesses abusive behavior towards a child can and should report it!

The shocking truth is that neglect is the number one form of child abuse in America. More children die from neglect every year than from any other form of maltreatment. Child abuse is not just a family problem. It’s a social health issue. Child abuse is everyone’s business.
