To the editor:

The editorial “Help prevent child abuse” (published April 3) informs the media about child abuse; however, it does not mention how the average citizen can provide assistance.

Indeed, child abuse is a momentous topic, but not everyone knows the importance of the situation.

The average citizen can help prevent child abuse by simply dispersing its severity. Effortless acts, ranging from reminding parents of their children’s worth to initiating anti-child abuse seminars and events, can be beneficial. Another method of assistance can be sharing the stories and the effects on the victims.

There are many different ways a person can contribute to the anti-child abuse campaign. A small gesture can result in a monumental change.
