THURSDAY, April 11, 2019 — April is Child Abuse Prevention month, so Madison Cares has been asking people and businesses to show their support and raise awareness by painting their nails blue and planting pinwheels. Seasons Medical is in full support of this movement and our Pediatric Providers have the blue thumbnails to prove it.

“All kids need advocates. The best thing you can do in our community to help prevent child abuse and neglect is keep your eyes open, watch for situations that don’t feel right, and don’t be afraid to get help!” said Jason Hymas, MD.

Gene Gates, MD feels Child Abuse Prevention Awareness is very important. He said there are many forms of child abuse and neglect. “The more education that is out there, the more we can do to help children in our community to have healthy, happy childhoods.”

Having a healthy childhood creates a pattern, that child will likely grow up to be more stable and productive, plus they will be more capable to raise their children in a healthy environment according to Mark Hammar, PA-C. “If you are a parent who wants to break an unhealthy pattern, I highly recommend seeing a therapist or checking in with your physician to help find the underlying cause of the behavior you would like to change.”

Madison Cares also offers free parenting classes and classes on recognizing the signs of abuse throughout the year. Please visit their website: www.mymadisoncares.com to sign up today.

“I will stand by and promote anything we can do to safeguard our children. I applaud the efforts Madison Cares has taken to raise child abuse prevention awareness.” Gary Sena, PA-C
