Child abuse is something that affects families across all socioeconomic backgrounds and ethnicities, and in many cases, the abuse comes from a parent who loses control of their temper in a stressful situation. However, even just 5 seconds of shaking can kill an infant child or leave them permanently disabled. Scott strives to equip parents with the tools they need to take a step back from heated situations
Scott Juceam is a business owner, consultant, motivational speaker, and advocate against Shaken Baby Syndrome/Abusive Head Trauma.
Shaken Baby Syndrome
Scott is also the founder of the Hannah Rose Foundation, an organization founded in memory of Hannah Rose Juceam, who was shaken to death by her babysitter in 2006. The organization was founded to raise funds to educate people about the dangers of Shaken Baby Syndrome.
Every year, more than 1,500 infants die from being violently shaken. Most of the time, babies are shaken by caregivers, family members, or people close to the family. Sometimes the shaking happens out of aggression towards the crying baby, and other times it happens by accident. Scott aims to educate people on how to handle their children when they are crying excessively.
