Empowering Our Children Against Sexual Abuse

Image

Sexual abuse of children is a sad and frighteningly common occurrence. If you yourself have not been a victim, you are the parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, cousin, friend, teacher or neighbor of someone who has. Most of the time you don’t even know until someone in a room tells their story and the rush of stories that follow bears witness to the frequency of the crime.

Michelle R. Britto, is the author of “What’s Below Your Tummy-Tum?, Empowering kids to have a voice for their own safety.”  She is creating a movement toward empowerment and prevention, away from feelings of fear, powerlessness and victimization. You can learn more about Ms. Britto on the following links:

  1. This always concerns me especially with having a 1 year old daughter and working in the public school system. I hear so many stories and it breaks my heart to know that our children are not even exempt from experiencing abuse. Many thanks for your post as always!

    • Sumayyieh,

      I feel your pain. That’s why it is important for ideas from people like Ms. Britto to be heard. We definitely have to take another approach and explore new ways of protecting our children. Thank you as always from taking the time to read and comment. Much appreciated.
