Are You With Me On This?

OUTRAGED…that children of all ages (birth to 17 years of age) are being violated every single day & night…by those that call themselves adults…who should be concerned with protecting children…but rather choose to do unimaginable things to the most innocent of all of us. ARE YOU WITH ME ON THIS?

Why Talk to YOUR Child about Childhood Sexual Abuse? (Part 2)

#2

You cannot protect your child from Sexual Abuse without talking to them… specifically about Rape, Incest, Molestation & Exploitation; at the age-appropriate level of course. Children need to know the dangers out there.  They need to know that if this happens or is happening to them, that they can come to you.  They need to know that no matter who may be doing this to them, that you will believe them.  They need to feel safe to “tell” on their abuser.

Why Talk to YOUR Child about Childhood Sexual Abuse? (Part 1)

# 1

We talk to our children about many things… the importance of education, dangers of drugs & alcohol, etc…  We may even mention to our little ones that no one should ever touch their private parts & we assume that if anyone ever did, that our child would tell us.  In addition, we teach our children to “never talk to strangers”.  The problem with stopping there is that 90 – 95% of children who are sexually abused know the abuser.  These sexual predators are not strangers in most cases.  I fear that by not talking to children specifically about sexual abuse, Parents may be unknowingly enabling their child to be “easy prey” for the many sexual perpetrators out there.
