Thanks for sharing this article Megan.   Child abuse detection and reporting can be one of the most difficult but at the same time, one of the most important roles we have as a school nurse.  Thank you Jodi Muffley for speaking up on this important topic.  I like your analogy of giving children "a safe place to fall."
