"As a Mom - do you know the signs to look for?"

You have a good home a sound family - you love and raise your children right - BUT- your child  may have been has been abused- raped- molested in school. Your child is in danger of being  kidnapped from your own home or the local
bus stop or shopping center!

We have been too silent too long. Tune in and let's plan how to stop this!

What is child sexual abuse?

Sexual abuse of children is a harsh fact of life in our society. It is more common than most people realize. Some surveys say at least 1 out of 5 adult women and 1 out of 10 adult men report having been sexually abused in childhood.

Child sexual abuse is any sexual act with a child performed by an adult
or an older child. This might be fondling the child's genitals; getting the child to fondle an adult's genitals; mouth to genital contact; rubbing an adult's genitals on the child; or actually penetrating the child's vagina
or anus.

Other forms of abuse can also occur that are not as easy to detect.
These include showing an adult's genitals to a child, showing the child pornographic or "dirty" pictures or videotapes, or using the child as a model to make pornographic materials.

Boys and girls are abused in this way most often by adults or older children who are known to them and who can exert power over them.

The victim knows the offender in 8 out of 10 reported cases. The
offender is often an authority figure whom the child trusts or loves. The offender persuades, bribes, tricks, or coerces the child to engage in sex
or sexual acts.

You hope that your son or daughter would tell you or someone else
about it. Yet, children who are being abused often have been convinced or threatened by the abuser that they must not tell anyone about it. A child's first statements about abuse may be vague and incomplete. He may just hint about the problem. Some abused children may tell their friends about it, who may then tell an adult. Many children tell about abuse after a personal safety program is held at their school. Sometimes parents may have suspicions about abuse. Parents need to be aware of the behavioral changes in their child. Tune in tonight bring a paper and pencil. As a MOM we must unite and take action NOW.
