Abuse reports are continuing to rise here, across nation

It’s difficult to talk about child abuse, but the subject is very important. And it is being talked about a lot this month because April is Child Abuse Prevention Month.

Unfortunately, child abuse is a fact of life in many Rowan County families, as in families across the state and nation.

Annually, more than 3.5 million children are reported to child protective services agencies as victims of child abuse and neglect. Mirroring the nation, the number of reports of child abuse and neglect in North Carolina continues to rise, according to the state Department of Health and Human Services. In fiscal year 2009, the state had 67,397 reports of abuse or neglect, up from 58,815 in fiscal year 1998.
