Episode #63: Protecting our Children From Sexual Abuse–What I Must Know
Don’t think it! Don’t think this is not for you or your family. Don’t think that this could never happen in your family and that it only happens in “THOSE” families! That is not true. It’s really not.
I know you don’t want to think about this. I know you don’t want to hear the words or have these images in your mind but parents, I wouldn’t insist that you listen if I didn’t know that it was so necessary and so important. I don’t like thinking about it any more than you do. Please believe that. But, we have an obligation to not only our own children but to all children to do everything in our power to keep them safe. It starts with knowledge!
The more you know, the more you can keep your children safe. Listen today and I will as gently as possible be as direct as I possibly can about things that you simply must know and must do. I hope you listen. I hope you act. I hope you feel empowered knowing that you are equipping yourself to protect your children.
You are the LION! You are the BEAR! You are a parent! Don’t wait. Don’t put this off. Listen TODAY! You just never know how knowing these things could save a child, maybe even yours.
Monica, thank you for this BRAVE and very helpful podcast. I plan to monthly interview my sons and also provide the words they may be struggling to express. You also gave me a way to look at secrets and how damaging they can be.
I’m so glad you found some helpful council. I know your children will feel your love for them as you stay engaged in these more sensitive areas. Thank you so much for listening!
