April is child abuse prevention month.
As a survivor of abuse myself, this month is very important to me! Last year, I wrote a post sharing a bit of my story and challenging parents to teach their children about abuse. I was a homeschooled extremely sheltered little girl, and yet still ended up being abused when my dad wasn’t around to protect me.
I challenged parents to teach kids shat it looks like, what kids can do if some one is abusing them and that they have the right to speak up, even if it’s a person in authority doing the abusing. The post eventually got picked up by Blog her and many parents said they were encouraged to open up a dialogue about abuse with their kids because of it! I’d love to see that happen again this year, so that even more kids can be helped!
A blogging friend made the above image and a matching button for last year’s post, and allowed me to share it with all of you. If you’d like to show your support for Child Abuse Prevention in April, you can copy the button code below into the HTML part of your website! Although I will be posting a lot more about child abuse prevention later on in April, the button will continue to link back to the original post I did last year.
