Bringing awareness to and aiding in the prevention of shaken baby syndrome

Take a break - don't shake 

Above, pictures from our 4th Annual Posey County Foster Care Christmas Party! There were approximately 275 in attendance. Everyone enjoyed a nice meal and dessert set to the backdrop of piano and song. A local magician, Mr. Sharpe, was there to entertain families and children as they waited to sit on Santa's lap and receive gifts. Due to privacy policies set forth by the Division of Child Services, we are prohibited from posting photos of foster children or those who fall under their umbrella of protection. 

Prevent Child Abuse America

Get Involved in the Life of a Child!

Members of the community participate in the Posey County Prevent Child Abuse and Division of Child Services Walk.  Get involved in your local chapter or start a chapter in your county by contacting your state office. Every child deserves a happy childhood!.

Every parent should know that it is OK to ask for help when caring for a baby. Our society needs to change its way of thinking when it comes to rearing our children. Just because you need support and assurance from a family member, friend, teacher, counselor, minister or neighbor from time-to-time does not make you a bad parent. It doesn't make you dumb. Nor does it make your baby a bad baby or your child a bad child. None of us know everything there is to know about infants and children. If we did, all research on the topic of children would cease to exist.

It takes all of us working together to raise healthy, joyful, upstanding citizens for our community and country. However, it all starts in the home. Our homes should be a safe haven for our little ones. It should be a place to feel secure from fear and outside elements. If that means asking for help to make it happen, then ask for the help. There is no shame in asking.
