CHILDREN

TOGETHER WE WILL

Alabama Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) — Speaking Up for Abused and Neglected Children

More than 14,000 of Alabama’s most vulnerable children are attending court hearings, adjusting to new homes and navigating the child welfare system every day. CASA volunteers are trained to advocate for the best interests of these children.

Our goal is to provide a dedicated CASA volunteer for every abused and neglected child to give them a voice and help them thrive in a safe and loving home. With your support, Together We Will achieve that goal. Learn how you can help.

Schooling from home doesn't mean that bullying goes away. Cyberbullies are still in action from behind the screen. Stopbullying.gov has advice on recognizing situations of cyberbullying, so that you can prevent it!

"Warning Signs a Child is Being Cyberbullied or is Cyberbullying:

Many of the warning signs that cyberbullying is occurring happen around a child’s use of their device. Some of the warning signs that a child may be involved in cyberbullying are:

Noticeable increases or decreases in device use, including texting. A child exhibits emotional responses (laughter, anger, upset) to what is happening on their device.

- A child hides their screen or device when others are near, and avoids discussion about what they are doing on their device.

-Social media accounts are shut down or new ones appear.
A child starts to avoid social situations, even those that were enjoyed in the past.

-A child becomes withdrawn or depressed, or loses interest in people and activities.

Cyberbullying is a form of bullying, and adults should take the same approach to address it: support the child being bullied, address the bullying behavior of a participant, and show children that cyberbullying is taken seriously."
