Pinwheel Parade Promotes Child Abuse Prevention


By Jay Michaels

Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Today's breezy conditions were perfect for Head Start kids to plant their pin wheels in the ground.

The pinwheel march was the fifth annual local observance of National Child Abuse Prevention Month. The supervisor of the Twin Falls Head Start Center indicated they help parents learn how to raise their kids more effectively.

Rosanna Campbell says, "We support them, educating them in child development so they know what to expect, what their children are capable of at what age. We also help connect families with resources in the community, if they need more information about parenting."

This "pinwheel parade" is held on the College of Southern Idaho campus. The pinwheels are planted just north of the Student Union Building with a sign identifying them as Pinwheels For Prevention.
