Pinwheels blowing in the breeze put focus on curbing child abuse
space
A colorful and poignant sight awaits those who drive by the Langlade County Fairgrounds: Hundreds of blue pinwheels, blowing in the breeze, in awareness of National Child Abuse Prevention Month.

The pinwheels were placed by members of the Langlade County Citizen Review Panel and will remain along the fence at fairgrounds through the end of the month.

The pinwheel display in front of the Langlade County Fairgrounds serves as a reminder of the great childhoods we want for all children in our communities, Cindy Fischer, a review panel member, said. We hope that as people pass by they will be encouraged to become more involved in a child’s life and spend more quality time with their own children.

According to Fischer, programs that support families, such as home visitation programs and family resource centers, are proven to strengthen families and prevent child abuse and neglect. Studies show that children do well when their parents do well.

Supporting families and ensuring parents have knowledge, skills and resources they need to parent effectively can help protect children from the risk of child abuse and neglect, she stressed.

The Langlade County Citizen Review Panel is a group of volunteer citizens working with the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families and the Langlade Department of Social Services to improve child protective services at the state and local levels. It’s vision is community members working together to achieve a common goal of protecting and educating children and their families.

We have a working mission of empowering and providing opportunities to our children and families in order to keep them safe and united by improving child protective services and education with the community, Fischer said. Parents, caregivers, and community members will be provided tools and resources to promote healthy and stable environments and an understanding of child protective services.

The panel encourages all individuals and organizations to:

—Take time to talk to parents in your neighborhood – get to know them.

—Share local resources with families.

—Become advocate for legislation and funding which support family programs within your community.

—Donate new or gently used clothing, toys to programs that support families with children.

— Bring a meal or groceries to a family with young children.

—Organize a family fun event – such as a family story night, game or movie night.
