*Young children between the ages of birth to 4 years old are at most risk of fatal injuries due to abuse. In fact, the figures are double those of children that are in the 5 -14-year-old age group. It would be a positive step in communities to give young mothers help with parenting skills. Being a young mother can be a demanding time, and if you add an abusive or challenging environment into this scenario, the child may be the one that suffers. I have included some parenting fact sheets from the CDC that you may find helpful to share with parents in your community.
