All Adults Are the Protectors of All Children

 

The absence of reports of violence against children in the media does not reflect the amount of trauma and suffering of children in toxic homes in our communities today. About a third of American Children are reported to Child Protective Services by their 18th birthday in this nation prior to COVID outbreak.

The explosion of violence in the streets of our major cities over the murder of Floyd George is one more trauma and obstacle for attention and services for the children and families already suffering.

The COVID lockdown had almost ended domestic violence abuse reporting in the media before the Floyd George murder.  

For children, there are no classrooms to escape to and in many communities, social workers can’t get into the homes to talk to or look at children to hear their stories and see their bruises.  Law enforcement, government officials and courts will remain engaged in stopping riots and violence with little time for domestic problems of children.  

Police departments are being overwhelmed with domestic violence calls – many can’t keep up.  It will be a long time before schools reopen in the fall and how that will happen is unsure in many communitiies.

This must feel like a war to children living in toxic homes.

The United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres warned that we are seeing a horrifying global surge in domestic violence all over the world and is urging leaders to include protective measures in their pandemic plans.

The depth and scope of violence against children was a terrible problem before the pandemic.  Generational child abuse has grown exponentially for decades overwhelming our schools, justice systems and communities.

With all the suffering and anxiety our communities are facing every hour of every day, there is little chance that the tiny voices coming out of toxic homes will be heard by anyone anywhere.  All State Data.

These are hard times for everyone

but this is a very dark time for abused and neglected children.
