Did you know... …90% of all childhood sexual abuse occurs by someone with whom the child knows and has a trusted, established relationship, not by a stranger.
…According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, statistics show that 1 in 5 girls and 1 in 10 boys are sexually exploited before they reach adulthood, yet less than 35% of those assaults are reported to the authorities.
…Childhood sexual abuse occurs among ALL socioeconomic, educational, racial, and cultural groups in the United States and in the world.
…In the majority of cases of childhood sexual abuse, most predators gain access to their victims by enticement and deception, seldom by using force.
Pattie Fitzgerald of the Safely Ever After Program will be joining us and discussing ways to protect our children from sexual predators.
