Tip:  Don't fall into the trap of thinking that child sexual abuse happens at the hands of strangers. The offenders walk among us.

 

Statistic:  30-40% of child sexual abuse victims are abused by a family member, another 50% by someone outside the family they know and trust. Therefore only 10% are abused by strangers.

 

Thanks for continuing your education on how to prevent child sexual abuse. Your increased awareness will make a difference in the lives of children around you.
