Please pardon the disappearance as Hannah and I prepare to head over to Mission EDIFY this January!
April is Child Abuse Prevention & Sexual Assault Awareness Month
We must protect God's little ones.
Only 7% are strangers.
Today, I'm sharing staticss from RAINN www.rainn.org I encourage you to visit their website. And then I'll share my thoughts on Monday.
Among cases of child sexual abuse reported to law enforcement:
93% are known to the victim
- 7% are strangers
- 59% are acquaintances
- 34% are family members
Monday, I'll share one of the greatest gifts you can give your child to safeguard them from abuse. Something practical I learned in group therapy many years ago.
