Family & Children’s Place a ‘No Hit Zone’
July 20, 2017
The declaration stems from a growing nationwide movement with hospitals, physician offices, prosecutors, law enforcement and child serving agencies to help reduce the incidence of violence. We understand that hitting – using violence, especially children, contributes to negative outcomes such as increased risk of aggression, antisocial behavior, physical injury and even some mental health problems.
By being a No Hit Zone, the agency is helping reduce the risk that any given child – or anyone – will suffer abuse, or engage in criminal conduct as a child or adult.
