Hey everybody. I'm so glad you're here. That you're with me on this journey to do whatever we possibly can to prevent children from being sexually abused. I wanted to start off though, with two things. One, I wanna give you the hope that there are things you can do to help reduce the risk of your child or a child you care for being sexually abused and.
that doesn't mean that if you do everything right, that you are absolutely ensuring that a child won't be abused, you don't have that much control. I don't have that much control. I live with a mentality that I'm gonna do everything I can to protect my children and that if something happens, I'm gonna be prepared for that mentally so that I can show up for them and help them heal if that's the case and not bullying myself, because it is.
We live in a world where bad things happen, even when we are very prepared. So I wanted to put that little B in your bonnet so that you are thinking about what are you gonna do if it does happen that you aren't only thinking about prevention and there's gonna be a series on, oh, shit, what now? But for now, let's dive into what are the things that you as a caregiver teacher, therapist, parent can do to help prevent a child from being in the position of being victimized, uh, sexually, uh, abused by an adult, by a child, another child, an older child, or a developmentally more advanced child, um, or being traumatized through exposure somewhere around, um, pornography and the internet.
All right. Let's dive in.
