Milwaukee leaders come together for National Child Abuse Prevention Month

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month and The Parenting Network is just one organization working towards ending the cycle of abuse.

On Monday, leaders in violence prevention came together at City Hall, encouraging everyone to help make Milwaukee a better place for children and families. 

Mayor Tom Barrett says a lot of that starts with parenting and being an active part of your child's life.

"My childhood experiences that involved my parents in many ways didn't involve elaborate trips or big presents or spending. It involved their presence in my life in a positive way," Milwaukee May Tom Barrett said.

The Parenting Network teaches classes, has a 24-hour hotline for support, and offers other violence prevention programs throughout the year.
