The Children's Rainbow Foundation, Inc.,

Endeavors to reduce child abuse


      The Children's Rainbow Foundation, Inc., endeavors to reduce child abuse by giving children, parents, and the community the tools to prevent and recognize child abuse. With the use of the social media, applications, printed material, and our outreach programs to the communities and other charities, parents and children will receive support and the information needed to face the many challenges and pleasures of raising healthy, happy, and well-adjusted children.

     By means of our programs and donations we will reach out to both children and parents at-risk of violent behavior and parents who just need a helping hand.

 

     We at the Children's Rainbow Foundation, Inc. work to move beyond just addressing the impact of child abuse, we seek out the root causes and identify ways to prevent abuse before a child is harmed. We also address situations where there is a risk for harm that is likely to have occurred. Our social media tools reach hundreds of people and families every week through Twitter, Facebook and our web site. By promoting a higher standard in education, and awareness we will be able to achieve our goals. 

 

 

What is Abuse?

Neglect:

Failure to provide for a child's basic needs. Failure to provide food or shelter, lack of appropriate supervision, medical care, and education

 

Physical Abuse:

According to the Federal Forum on Child and Family Statistics (2010), the quality of a child's life is negatively impacted when the child witnesses violence, is a victim of violence, or feels threatened by violence.

Sexual Abuse:

Child sexual abuse is sexual behavior by an adult or older child including: kissing, fondling, sexual intercourse, oral sex, forced nudity, prostitution, photographing, or other behavior with sexual connotations.

Emotional Abuse:

 The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) found emotional abuse of a child is one of the most common forms of child abuse. Emotional abuse is also not easily categorized and may encompass psychological abuse. Making fun of a child, name calling, always finding fault, and showing a lack of respect may damage a child's self-esteem.
