Children Benefit When Parents Have Safe, Stable, Nurturing Relationships

Child maltreatment is a preventable public health problem affecting millions of families. Yet, child maltreatment is a serious problem that can have lasting harmful effects.  It is a complex problem rooted in unhealthy relationships and environments.

The goal for child maltreatment prevention is clear: to stop child abuse and neglect from happening in the first place. New research suggests that safe, stable, nurturing relationships between parents and other adults, in addition to those positive relationships between parents and their children, may help prevent child maltreatment from one generation to the next.

We know that healthy relationships between parents and their children are important, but a recent special issue in the Journal of Adolescent Health has shed light on the importance of safe, stable, nurturing relationships between parents and other adults in preventing child maltreatment.

Colleges Spending Millions to Deal With Sexual Misconduct Complaints

Title IX, enacted in 1972, bars discrimination on the basis of sex in educational programs that receive federal funds. It is more familiar as the law used to promote gender equity in sports and faculty hiring. But a 2011 federal policy statement clarified that it also applies to how universities deal with complaints of sexual assault. At a minimum, federal rules require colleges to designate one Title IX coordinator, at least part time.

Many colleges have gone far beyond that, at a cost ranging from thousands to millions of dollars. College officials said it was difficult to put a price tag on the efforts because they often spanned more than one department and involved volunteers and doubling up on jobs.

(Editor’s Note: Wouldn’t it be great if colleges focused on primary prevention of sexual misconduct through robust, relevant, relationship education for both males and females on their campuses?)
