Today I am re-posting from another Philly Social Media Mom, Sierra, called "Keep my kids from being a statistic."
She shares a tragic story heard recently on NPR about a man who was violently raped at only 7 years old....by a family friend's teenage son!?
If nothing else, check out the links she's provided to learn how you can talk to your kids about personal and physical boundaries. Did you know that "there is a 25% risk your daughters will be sexually abused by the age of 18. And your sons face a 15% risk?"
Personally, my husband and I try to listen closely to our gut instincts when it comes to our kids, but we have not yet had the "talk" with them. We will always make sure to listen when they try to tell us something, rather than dismiss their story. Kids are just too precious & vulnerable, and nothing can ever be taken too lightly.
