        Our Mission: A Secure Childhood for A Happy Adulthood 

KNOW THE FACTS

 

Myth #1: We live in a really safe neighborhood. I know that children wouldn’t ever be sexually abused here.
      Fact: Child sexual abuse can happen anywhere, in any neighborhood, in every religion, covering all racial boundaries, and it certainly doesn’t matter how rich or poor you are.

 

Myth #2: I have already talked to my children about not allowing anyone to touch their private parts.
      Fact: Sexual abuse occurs by forcing or manipulating a child in a way that allows the sexual offender to touch the child’s private parts.

 

Myth #3: People who are complete strangers to you or your child commit most sexual abuse cases.
      Fact: Most of the time the abusers are your family friends, family members (uncle, cousin brother, and aunt), people who work in
your home, (driver and housekeeping personnel), and people who are in authority, such as coaches and teachers.

 

Myth #4: You believe that children would automatically tell you that he or she had been sexually abused.
      Fact: Most sexually abused children do not tell anyone that they were abused, even when directly asked by parents. Victims of sexual abuse are often too afraid that the news will hurt their parents, or they are afraid of not being believed, or the offender
threatened them in some way.

 

Myth #5: Teaching children about sexual abuse scares or cause negative impact on them.
      Fact: Informed children are safer children. Children can easily take in the information of the subject without feeling frightened.
Most of abuse prevention does not involve informing your children that something might happen to them. It involves giving children a better understanding of concepts that they will use on a day-to-day basis, as well as if a molester ever targets them.

 

Myth #6: It is the responsibility of the adults and not the children to protect themselves from Child Sexual Abuse.
      Fact: Adults are ultimately responsible for children’s safety. They are responsible for protecting children from Child Sexual Abuse and creating a safe environment for them. Adults cannot watch their children all the time. Children should be taught how to protect themselves from dangerous situations when their parents are not around.
