Child abuse


Dear Editor:

As we celebrate the prevention of child abuse and neglect this month of April, I would like to take the opportunity to thank United Fund of Switzerland County for their support and grant to our organization, Prevent Child Abuse Council of Switzerland County.

The grant allowed us to present right here in our community, Chick Moorman, educator, author and nationally known speaker, who teaches strategies to encourage parents and children to take personal responsibility.

The Teacher Talk and Parent Talk systems use positive communication styles that create emotionally healthy relationships. Our choice of words, and our communication style are critical to self-esteem, emotional health, and personal empowerment of our children and in our adult relationships as well.

Thanks again to United Fund for helping us reach this goal.
