With holidays approaching, friends & family will gather.
It is of the utmost importance to recognize that children should never be forced to hug anyone they do not wish to hug.
Just because you believe a friend or family member to be decent, does not mean you know what they may or may not do to your children when you’re not present.
Allowing children to create boundaries and practice bodily integrity is significant to healthy development.
Being a “good girl” or “good boy” does not mean accepting abuse from people who should be safe.
It is your responsibility to protect the children in your life.

Because other people's children matter just as much as mine. I will stand in the gap. I just cannot look away, I cannot ignore a child being abused or in an unsafe environment. Change must come!
Knowledge is power when applied. Making changes to protect our nation's children. #childprotection #childprotectionpolicy #childabuseprevention #knowledgeispower #applyknowledge #saveourchildren #ilove #socialaction #development

Jamie Murdock, 2, from Oklahoma passed away on Sept. 2, 2017 after she was abused to death by her mother and mother’s boyfriend.
The couples blamed the child's death on sleepwalking, police said. Whitney Breslin, 21, and Cashe Graham, 22, were arrested for first-degree murder after Breslin's daughter died from injuries the couple claims she caused herself.
According to KFOR, Graham called police Friday morning after he found the child struggling to breathe. “We just thought she was sleeping in a little late and, when we went to check on her, she was breathing real weird," Graham said in a 911 recording. "She's breathing in and out maybe every 15 seconds. She's breathing real hard."
Jamie was rushed to the hospital and was stabilized before being transferred to another hospital, where she died from her injuries.
Shawnee Police Detective Sergeant Jason Crouch told the outlet that the little girl had bleeding and swelling on her brain, a bruise on her chin and another bruise on her lower abdomen. She also tested positive for marijuana. Sgt. Crouch said based on the amount of drugs in Jamie's system, she would have had to ingest it.
When questioned by investigators, Graham and Breslin allegedly denied harming the girl saying that she often sleepwalks and falls down. Sgt. Crouch said the couple had childproofed their home by putting "rubber on the corners of the desks, and the cabinets and the windowsills," but doctors don't believe the girl caused her own injuries by sleepwalking.
Authorities said at this stage in the investigation it's hard to determine which one caused Jamie's injuries. "Neither one of them are coming off of their story, saying that they understand how bad it looks but that they didn't do it," he said. "Well, somebody did it. One of them did it. Either one of them did and the other's covering for them, or vice versa or they both were a part of it. But, they're both guilty." #memoryofangels #gonetoosoon #rip #loved #missed #youareloved #youaremissed #gonebutneverforgotten #neverforgotten #neverforget #memoryofangelskids #childabuseawareness #childabuseprevention #stopchildabuse

Finley Steele | — 2014
Finley was 8 months old when she passed away after she was beaten to death by mother's live-in boyfriend in 2014.
Steele, who was given a suspended sentence for two felonies related to her daughter’s death and put on five years’ probation, had no prior criminal history and was a good mother until she met Cody M. Baker, her attorney Andrew Popplewell said at her sentencing.
Baker moved in with Steele and her daughter, 8-month-old Finley, in January 2014. He told Steele what she wanted to hear, Popplewell said, and Steele neglected signs of abuse on Finley. Police said on Feb. 28, 2014, Baker beat the infant to death; he and Anna Steele were subsequently arrested and charged with second-degree murder.
A jury convicted Baker in November, and he is serving a 30-year sentence. Steele in November pleaded guilty to neglect or abuse of a child and first-degree child endangerment.

Henry Martinez | — 2016
Henry was 6 months old when he passed away after he was abused to death while in the hands of his own father in Aug. 2016.
Henry suffered from blunt-force injuries to the head and neck. The baby also had blunt-force injuries to his torso, and the injuries resulted from an assault.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal obtained a copy of an arrest warrant for Martinez signed Monday. The warrant shows the man told first responders that Henry had choked on a bottle, and the injuries were the result of the man’s attempts at first aid. But Doctors at the hospital told officers that the baby had multiple injuries, including bruises and fractured ribs, the warrant shows.
When police went to talk to Martinez a second time, they encountered a lawyer who said Martinez would not be answering any more questions.
According to the warrant. Police found wet baby clothes in a sink and noted that Martinez never mentioned putting the baby in water to revive him. Officers also found Henry’s blood on an ottoman in the living room, which Martinez never explained.
Emergency dispatchers gave Martinez instructions on how to perform CPR, but the arriving paramedics said he was not doing it. The first responders also were unnerved by Martinez’s behavior when they arrived; he seemed too calm and did not ask to ride with the baby in the ambulance, according to the warrant.

Desaray Ballinger, 4, from UK passed away on July 9, 2017 after she was abused to death by her mother and mother's fiance.
Kelly Ballinger, 33, and fiancé Matthew Longenecker, 34, appeared in Kalamazoo County District Court where they were charged with murder and first-degree child abuse on Tuesday, a court official tells.
On Sunday, Kalamazoo police responded to a call of a child not breathing. CPR was performed on the child for nearly an hour before she was pronounced dead, according to a detective testimony on Tuesday.
The child’s body was allegedly covered in bruises and she appeared to have suffered from severe trauma, the detective stated. A police pathologist ruled her death a homicide.
The 911 call was made by the boyfriend’s mother shortly before 5 a.m., a family member told the network. During police questioning, the couple allegedly confessed to restraining the girl nightly for the past two weeks using duct tape and blankets. Text messages found on their phones allegedly corroborated their claims, a detective told the judge Tuesday.
The couple allegedly told investigators they would wrap the girl in blankets at night to form a “makeshift swaddle” with her face sometimes covered, the detective testified. The swaddle was then wrapped in duct tape to keep her inside. She would stay in the restraint, unable to remove, until the next morning, when she was unwrapped, the parents allegedly admitted, according to the detective.
On the day of her death, the girl’s face was covered, her mother told detectives, Michigan Live reports.
Two other children found in the home were taken into Child Protective Services. Both Bullinger and Longnecker were denied bond and appointed public defenders.
They have not yet entered a plea, a court official stated.
