The Penn State Sex Abuse Crisis has horrified us as parents and as human beings. The thought of someone being able to use their power to abuse children is incomprehensible. Sometimes parents wait until it is s too late to discuss these types of situations and scenereos with their children. I am not speaking of the parents of the victims in this case, I am speaking in general terms. My heart goes out to these families. We are offering this special broadcast because we sincerely feel this horrific turn of events gives parents a golden opportunity to speak to their children, calm frightened children and speak in very clear terms as to what they are to do if they are ever in this situation or know of someone who is.
Joining us to discuss the psychological impact of children being exposed to the sexual abuse scandal in the media and why and how parents should have this important conversation is Dr Jerry Weichman.
