        Child abuse has become a big problem all over the nation and even here in southeast Idaho. To raise awareness Kristopher L. Walton and associates has teamed up with Help Inc. for a child abuse prevention symposium.

The symposium will help parents and child care providers know what signs to look for if a child is being abused.

“I think they can expect to get, first of all a lot of really good helpful information for, a lot of people have come to me and have said what if I suspect that somebody is abusing a child or how do I report this, where do I go?” said Help Inc. Executive Director Brianna Jones.

The symposium is a kick-off event for the month of April which is Child Abuse Prevention month.

Besides a child abuse prevention presentation, the seminar will include an open panel discussion and a question and answer period.

“I think it’s really important that people know because unfortunately this is happening all around us and I think sometimes things go unreported simply because people don’t know how to report, where to report, and they may even be a little bit nervous to report” continued Jones.

There’s a $10 entrance fee to the symposium which is being held at the Idaho State University Student Union Building in Idaho Falls.

The event is expected to go until 9:00 tonight.
