As schools shut down across the world in an effort to contain the spread of the COVID-19, we understand the unique challenges and adjustments that you and the children you care for might be facing. This series is designed to address your most pressing questions around personal and child-care and well-being in these times.
Camille Cooper, vice president of RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network), advises people learn to prevent, detect and help children who are victims of sexual abuse. It is recorded that cases of child abuse has increased within the months of COVID-19, as children are the most vulnerable during these new circumstances. Cooper discusses what teachers, family members, and neighbors can do to help those kids amid COVID-19 restrictions.
