To Do Nothing , is to do something!

January 3, 2011

We are bombarded with media coverage about sexual predators being arrested, but the reality is that most don’t get caught because they are disguised as nice men (or women) in positions of authority and trust. We are lulled into a false sense of security, thinking it won’t happen to us or we expect others, the law, churches, schools and NGO’s to protect our children. The onus in on the parent to train their child the same way they teach them about the dangers of electricity, crossing a street and the dangers of swimming. Yet we fail to teach them about the dangers of perverted men and women who may change the course of their life through sexual abuse and exploitation. There is not enough information around to teach parents how to teach their child without scaring them of all people. It is too confronting to deal with and we don’t want to alarm our children, so we do nothing because we don’t believe that the people we trust and allow access to our children will harm them.

Free Colouring Book for you to use as a tool to help teach your child self protection and awareness. http://www.breakthroughoptions.org
