Prevention plans on the family level include helping parents meet their basic needs, identifying problems of substance abuse and spouse abuse, and educating parents about child behavior, discipline, safety and development. In the case of child abuse, primary prevention is defined as any intervention designed for the purpose of preventing child abuse before it occurs. In 1993, three million children in the United States were reported to have been abused. Thirty-five percent of these cases of child abuse were confirmed.

The System of Child Abuse Human service professionals are required to report all cases regarding alleged child abuse and neglect. They work diligently to assist children and families through events that are often traumatic. While they work hard to provide assistance, it is important for them to be prepared to provide community resources to families and individuals who may or may not agree with receiving help. When allegations of abuse or neglect have been made, local child protective services (CPS) intervene to make decisions based on what they believe is the best option for the children involved. Their goal is not to tear families apart, but rather offer services that will provide a healthy and safe environment for children.

Homophobia and the supremacy of the gendered hetero atomic family or heteronormativity are likewise included in the challenges of the social movements. Of course, these social movements must include political goals. Some of these goals include changing laws and policies so that the LGBT community can gain new rights, benefits, and protections from harm. (Bernstein, 2002) Conflicts in the LGBT social movements may also arise especially about the strategies for change and debates over who involves in the population that these movements represent. (Bull and Gallagher, 1996) There are debates on to what extent does the LGBT Community share common interests and a need to work hand in hand.
The change must come by addressing the views of the public. There is much justification in the unequal rights of transgendered peoples. The Human Rights Campaign has been started to achieve equal rights for all Americans including the LGBQ community. A serious injustice is in the world of sports. Professional sports are one of societies major traditions totally based on rules and regulations that are meant to preserve the integrality of the games, but may not be inclusive to all its players.
It is this type of thinking that perpetuates the status quo of heterosexual privilege. There have been several incidents in the past few weeks that have brought the existence of homophobia on our college campus and others as well to the forefront of many people’s minds. The incidents subsequently mentioned demonstrate the necessity of better education and understanding of sexual minorities not only for their own advancement towards equality, but for the growth of heterosexual individuals as well and progression away from the status quo. To provide a truly complete and fulfilling educational experience at Colby and other similar schools it is necessary to provide educational materials on all lifestyles and examples of diversity that exists not only in our own culture, but others as well. I believe that facilitating this complete learning experience leads to developing the individual mind morally as well as academically.
Studies show that many children in the community face various forms of abuse and neglect (Fortson, Klevens, Merrick, Gilbert & Alexander, 2016). Consequently, these abuse and neglect incidents profoundly affects the growth and development of the child. Therefore, it is imperative to address them to prevent future consequences in the lives of the children. In this case, the child protection policy needs to address the following issues affecting the children today. First, the policy serves to protect the child against physical abuse.
Co-ordination of Services in Social Care My setting is linked with SENCO (Special Education Needs Co-ordinater) and Ofsted to ensure the child receives the rights it deserves i.e. education. In the project I am to show how the role of each service and how it is linked to my setting. Each year, parents of children with disabilities have the important responsibility of working with school personnel to develop an appropriate educational program individualised to their child's needs. With the increase the increase in inclusive practices and a growing awareness of the rights of all children, perceptions of special educational needs (SEN) are changing in the community in general and in education in particular.
Today’s society is changing; the LGBTQIA+ community is growing, people are becoming more accepting, and the world is opening its hearts to the people who are different. Not everyone in this society gives acceptance, however, for there is still unnecessary sex and racial discrimination--especially by the transgender community. Transgender and gender nonconforming citizens are faced with more bias and discrimination than the rest of the general population. Rights and legal legislation is needed to protect transgender and gender nonconforming people from social injustices. There are many ways you can support transgender or gender nonconforming people you know or that are around you.
