When kids are raised in stable, caring homes, they will more likely become productive and responsible adults. Prevent Child Abuse Iowa states that for every $50 spent to treat child abuse, only $1 is spent to prevent it. Studies show investing in parental support and education is less expensive and more effective than trying to treat the effects of child abuse. We all can help prevent child abuse by educating ourselves and others about the facts surrounding child abuse, advocating for children and families and changes that are needed, and donating our resources to and participating in child abuse prevention efforts.
