Kid Quotes Friday: National Child Abuse Prevention Month

As you know, the quotes that you read here every Friday are brilliant, witty, and knee-slapping funny. 90% of these quotes come from kids who have been neglected or sexually, physically, or emotionally abused by people who were supposed to be taking care of them. April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. A month is not enough. Light must be constantly and continually shed upon the abuse of children. If you know of any abuse or suspected abuse call your local Child Protective Agency or the police. You can report anonymously if you feel more comfortable that way. It is not okay to turn your head. It is not okay for us to hide our heads in the sand. It is our job as adults to look out for those who cannot look out for themselves. Please, help make me unemployed!

    I can’t imagine the job you have to do every day. I know this sounds like such a cliche but you must be such a special person to be able to do it. What a gift you are to those kids.

    I say that all the time – I wish I wasn’t needed, I wish I didn’t have a job. We social workers do good stuff, I just wish there was no reason for us to be.

    It’s a sorry situation some people will tell themselves anything not to have to get involved in other peoples family matters. We need to change that….for the children.
