CDC Publishes "Essentials for Childhood" Strategies for Creating Healthy Environments

"Safe, stable, and nurturing relationships (SSNRs) are essential to prevent child maltreatment and to assure children reach their full potential. Essentials for Childhood proposes strategies communities can consider to promote the types of relationships and environments that help children grow up to be healthy and productive citizens so that they, in turn, can build stronger and safer families and communities for theirchildren."

"Essentials for Childhood is intended for anyone committed to the positive development of children and families, and specifically to the prevention of all forms of child abuse and neglect. While child maltreatment is a significant public health problem, it is also a preventable one. The steps suggested in Essentials for Childhood — along with your commitment to preventing child maltreatment—can help create neighborhoods, communities, and a world in which every child can thrive." - As described by the CDC
