Investing in Children and Families
Thursday, June 30, 2022, 11:30am – 12:30pm
When we make investments in children and families, the next generation will pay it back through a lifetime of productivity and responsible citizenship. When we don’t attend to important aspects of child development now, there are serious consequences later. This means we need to invest in the kinds of policies and programs that prevent child abuse and neglect. Foster care, clinical treatment and other professional interventions are more costly and produce less desirables outcomes than nurturing, protective relationships and appropriate experiences earlier in life.
