This Week in GeorgiaGov: Children
Georgia's Department of Human Services' Division of Family and Children Services receives a report of child abuse every 15 minutes. Understanding the prevalence of child abuse and its prevention are important steps to decreasing child abuse in our communities and across the state.
When children experience a traumatic event, see or hear media coverage of it or overhear people talking about it, they can feel anxious, worried, or confused. Some children react right away, while others may show signs later.
