The Governor talks about child abuse awareness and Delaware’s month-long campaign designed to urge people to see the signs and make the call. A majority of child abuse incidents go unreported.
Our children rely on us for so much – guidance, support, safety. We have a tremendous opportunity to be a positive force as they navigate through childhood and build a foundation for their future. But it’s more than an opportunity – it’s our responsibility. Children look to us to be role models, to make good choices, to be champions for what’s best for them. This responsibility is most critical when it comes to their safety and well-being.
