There are school counselors, teachers, social workers, medical providers, friends, and family that nurture children every day and we want to acknowledge those efforts that mean so much for all of our children. However, child abuse and neglect is a complicated and nuanced issue where we must balance safety with long term outcomes for children. Where we are trying hard to protect children with the information and tools that we have been given to do so. And, it takes many players to make a team that creates a safety net for those that cannot protect themselves- from the individuals around a child, the systems that are tasked with caring for children, and the legislative actions taken to make laws and provide resources to do so.
Protection within the wider field of safeguarding includes risk assessments, such as ensuring that children are provided with safe environment both at home and in school. At home it is up to the parents to provide their children with a safe and happy environment. In cases in which they are unable to do this, and the parents cannot protect or look after their child properly, the child may have to be removed from their home and put into care. In schools there are many different policies and procedures that must be followed to achieve a suitable learning environment for children, and it includes procedures such as health and safety and fire safety. All schools must provide all of the right equipment and all staff are should be aware of their responsibilities and be able to carry them out.

Madison Rummel I feel that if it is our job to report it, we have to report. Kids or adolescents have to understand that if you go to someone about child abuse they have to tell someone about it. But I would make sure that child knows that i would be on there side and make sure nothing would happen to them and they can trust me on helping them on this issue. That's also can keep away the negative feeling the parent or client might have on the issue. I would make sure the parents know that i am their child's counselor and i wouldn't do anything to them that would harm them but protect them.
