Remember to ask your child every day when they come home from school how their day was and be a good listener. We need to protect our most precious resource... our children. Negative experiences such as sexual abuse will surface in adolescent years and we need to protect our children in any and all atmospheres. Sexual abuse can happen in any environment and we need to realize that, do not be too trusting of people, especially in schools. That is why it is so important to ask your child questions.
As advertised in Alaska wide-newspapers children are not always safe in school, there have been complaints and lawsuits regarding child molestation in schools. As a concerned mother, I encourage all parents to ask their child questions and listen. Sometimes parents are the only ones who are willing to protect their children and we need to pay attention to indicators of sexual abuse.. or it could happen to your child.
LET'S PROTECT OUR CHILDREN....LET'S PROTECT OUR FUTURE.
