Did you know that the word ‘June’ relates to ‘children?’ It is derived from the Latin word ‘Ju-Ven-Is’, which translates to ‘youth.’ This is why the month of June was chosen for Children’s Awareness Month. Children’s Awareness Month, which was initially founded in the loving memory of all the children who have died violent deaths in America. Over time it has evolved into something bigger. Children’s Awareness Month has become a time to spend nurturing and cultivating the joys and treasures of childhood. This month focuses on awareness of ways to encourage, support, and educate children, while prioritizing their health and well-being.
