Child sex abuse is a topic most people don't want to discuss, avoiding it so they don't feel uncomfortable.
The fact is, it is a problem and a danger we have to guard our kids against.
When I received a press release from the Perrysburg Schools about a child sex abuse training I thought it was something I should look into. After a three-hour training session Monday night, I'm glad I did.
The training taught me what "abuse groomers," do to manipulate a child and family. I learned how it is usually people you trust, not strangers. I also sadly found out how common it is. One out of six boys, and one out of four girls encounter sexual abuse, according to the Stewards of Children. I have five brothers, so according to those stats, one of us logically would have been a victim.
