One of my favorite quotes is by Frederick Douglass who said,
“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.”
Please keep these two things in mind when you begin to think, “it’s just too hard to talk with my kids about sexual abuse”.
Here in the USA, 1 in 3 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be victims of childhood sexual abuse before they turn 18…don’t let your child be another statistic, don’t let them become another David, or Linda, or or or…
They need your strength and guidance…you CAN talk with them and they will be grateful you did!!
If you’re finding it challenging to talk with your kids, please read this post for some guidance:
You are NOT your abuse.
You are NOT what they did to you.
You are NOT your trauma.
You ARE the cleverness that survived.
You ARE the courage that escaped.
You ARE the power that hid & protected a tiny spark of your light.
You will fan that spark into a bonfire of righteous rage and love,
and with it you will burn all their lies to ash!
