Advice From a Child Safety Advocate Kathy Picard

Have you ever thought about your husband or wife having a problem with abusing a child. A child that is in your family.

Well it does happen. With the statistics one in every 5 children will be a victim of sexual abuse before their 18th birthday. You may think to yourself I a having sex with them on a regular basis. Think again this doesn't matter.
A predator is not a creepy looking man or woman, 93% of the cases is someone the child knows and trusts. What can you do? Ask questions to the child, "Is someone harming you, touching you?" Ask these questions often.

I wish when I was a child someone asked me. I wish someone told me it IS okay to tell and not to keep a secret as I was told to do. Unfortunatey I was abused from 7-17. I am fortunate though and speak of my abuse and am a survivor. You can never "Investigate" enough!
