Childhood should be about making fond family memories and playing with friends on the playground. It should be a happy, carefree time. Unfortunately, for the over 400 children in Washington County who have been identified as abused or neglected, childhood is anything but happy and carefree. These children worry about where they will live and who will take care of them. They think that no one cares about them.
