Each one of us has a tale to tell.. Tale of pain and hurt. Events that change the way we look at ourselves and the people around us, leaving scars that stay forever. Shouldn’t we look back and wonder if it could have been prevented? Shouldn’t past make us more informed about how to deal with future?
In April, a few bloggers are coming together to share their experiences, thoughts and strategies to deal with CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE. And I am supporting them by being a part of it.
Can just blogging about it change anything?
I believe this can be the first step, considering the hush-hush nature of this issue. The more we know, the more aware we become. And that helps in dealing with this major parenting issue (whether you are a parent yourself or a parent’s well-wisher).
So across the month of April 2011, over 40 bloggers in the blogosphere will come together to post on various aspects of Child Sexual Abuse in a bid to create awareness about an issue which affects over 50 per cent of children. This, the Child Sexual Abuse Awareness Month April 2011, will run across their blogs as well as the CSA blog, which will be . In addition to these posts, the CSAAM blog will feature survivor stories, posts by experts and NGOs working in these fields. Through this concerted effort we hope to bring Child Sexual Abuse out of the closet and teach parents how to educate their children about predators, preventing their children from being abused and knowing how to deal with such a situation should it occur. Our children deserve a safe and happy childhood.
So come join us in the effort and Keep your child safe.
