What are some ways we can be part of a bigger change to stop child sexual abuse?
Well, one way to a bigger change is education and another way is to take action. Knowledge is power. As you are reading this, I want to say congratulations because you have taken a HUGE step towards education on the topic of child sexual abuse.
Most people don’t take the time of day to research about this sensitive topic. But the truth is child sexual abuse can happen to anyone. It happened to me. You can read more about my own personal child sexual abuse story ⇒ HERE. Please don’t be naïve and think it will never happen to your children! I am here to tell you the truth. It can happen to your loved ones!
I know lots and lots of people with whom many of them I call dear friends that were sexually abused. I found out every one of my friends was abused by a family member either by an uncle, father, or grandfather. These real life statistics refute the myth, “Stranger Danger” and this is something I talk about in my Ebook (scroll down to subscribe for a FREE download or on the side page).
Stranger Danger is taken from the idea that we need to protect our children from strangers. The TRUTHis we ALSO need to protect our children from our friends and family. I know people don’t like to hear this statement. I am going to speak the truth here on my blog. If you don’t like it, you don’t have to be a part of our community but I hope you stay! I hope I have your attention.
I say that in love because I care and want to help people to know the truth.
We need to protect our children from those we love too. It is sad to say. My own biological father, who was supposed to protect me, failed me in the most sadistic way. He molested me from the time I was a toddler until the age of 16. People are really sick out there. The more we talk about it, the more we can raise awareness. We need to fight and become Mama Bears! Do not worry about offending someone over protecting a child. Do the right thing and question a child if you feel led to.
Women are abusers too!
Men are not the only abusers. I do want to highlight that as well and how important it is not to be naïve. Women abuse children. I say trust your gut feeling. If you don’t feel comfortable leaving your children with someone, than don’t. There is a reason you feel uncomfortable so follow your intuition. I always say I’d rather be safe than sorry. Pray about it. Ask God to lead you.
We think that it will never happen to my child. You don’t want to be a statistic do you? Does it hurt to try? Try downloading my Ebook and researching other websites who provide valuable information on body safety and child sexual abuse prevention. I encourage you to talk about this to your friends, family and church.
Please don’t be naïve Mama!
