Halloween Safety

Can a convicted sex offender participate in Halloween/Trick-or-Treat activities? If the convicted sex offender is on supervision – which means restrictions have been placed on them as they relate to probation/parole and not state law – then they may not be participate in trick-or-treat activities (i.e. porch lights must be turned off; not permitted to open the door to trick-or-treaters, etc.). This restriction only applies if that offender’s conditions of probation/parole prohibit contact with children. Questions regarding an individual’s probation/parole status and any restrictions placed on them as a result of that status should be directed to your local Probation and Parole office or the Department of Corrections.

What can I do to protect my children? Parents and guardians are encouraged to visit the The National Sex Offender Registry or FAMILY WATCHDOG (you can search by an address or a name) to identify the relevant addresses of convicted sex offenders. This enables adults and guardians to make informed decisions on what residences/businesses to approach for trick-or-treating.

MICHIGAN–There are more than 40,000 people listed on Michigan’s registry of sex offenders. A tool from the state allows you to search for registered sex offenders in your neighborhood and see them on a map. According to the state, registered sex offenders are required to update their address in the the Michigan Public Sex Offender Registry within three days of moving to a new home. READ MORE HERE

Sex Offenders Target Charities, Children’s Orgs to Seek Vulnerable Victims

Posted by Sandra On October - 28 - 2012 Comments Off on Sex Offenders Target Charities, Children’s Orgs to Seek Vulnerable Victims

What motivates a sex offender to do charity work is an important question; various agencies involved will be reeling from the continuing spate of allegations regarding Jimmy Savile. It is well known that sex offenders often target deserving causes, in order to get close to a pool of vulnerable victims. Such predators appear outwardly altruistic, in order to gain access. But in the case of recent allegations over Jimmy Savile, who it is suggested may have raised around £40 million for charity over a lifetime of apparently ‘good works’, and who seemed to labor for so many different causes, over decades, this doesn’t seem an adequate explanation. It could be charity work acts as a smoke screen which fulfils many other warped objectives as well.  READ MORE HERE

Rapper Angel Haze Releases Song About Being Sexually Abused As A Child

Posted by Sandra On October - 28 - 2012 Comments Off on Rapper Angel Haze Releases Song About Being Sexually Abused As A Child

Up and coming rapper, Angel Haze, released a song titled Cleaning out My Closet which has left critics in shock at the brutal honesty that pervades through the track, chronicling Haze’s experience as a sexually abused child. The song is a personalized rendition of Eminem’s 2002 hit song, “Cleanin’ Out My Closet,” where the rapper goes into graphic detail of his troubled childhood and resentful feud with his mother.

Haze’s version lays out a harrowing narrative about being repeatedly raped and sexually abused from the age of seven by a much older man. According to her account, the pattern of abuse lasted well over a decade and spiraled the now 21-year old into an emotional whirlwind of depression, anorexia, and suicidal attempts. The song is gut-wrenching and cuts through the façade of mainstream rap revealing an intense and personal story that much of the rap audience can relate to. The song is part of a six-track mixtape titled, Classick released this past Thursday. READ MORE HERE

Horrifying scans: Brain of neglected child is much smaller than that of a normal 3-year-old

You comfort them over a skinned knee in the playground, and coax them to sleep with a soothing lullaby. But being a nurturing mother is not just about emotional care – it pays dividends by determining the size of your child’s brain, scientists say. Both of these images are brain scans of a two three-year-old children, but the brain on the left is considerably larger, has fewer spots and less dark areas, compared to the one on the right.  According to neurologists this sizable difference has one primary cause – the way each child was treated by their mothers.

Author Asks, “Can Everyone Please Calm Down About Child Abuse? “

Posted by Sandra On October - 27 - 2012 Comments Off on Author Asks, “Can Everyone Please Calm Down About Child Abuse? “

My Opinion: Either this lady is extremely ignorant, or she needs to visit my site and educate herself on child abuse statistics before stating such ridiculous claims. Child abuse has been declared a worldwide EPIDEMIC. I encourage Ms. Fox to visit our website! Maybe we should all contact her and invite her!?

Claire Fox states”Yes, Savile’s crimes were horrible. But let’s not spread fear by imagining child abuse to be widespread.”

Jimmy Savile was a repulsive individual who indulged in vile, degraded, abusive acts. On that we can all agree. But what is less a matter of consensus is how we should respond to the scandal. When I argued on Newsnight this week that we need some calm reflection and that the whole of society should not be reorganized around child protection, it started a minor Twitchunt, and I have been accused of everything from being a BBC stooge to a callous apologist for pedophilia.

Posted by Sandra On October - 27 - 2012 Comments Off on Admitted Boy Scouts Pedophile Worked At Child DayCare Center

Warning Signs of Child Sexual Abuse

Posted by Sandra On October - 27 - 2012 Comments Off on Warning Signs of Child Sexual Abuse

To protect children from sexual abuse, parents should keep some specific things in mind about how adults interact with their children, particularly in youth-service organizations largely staffed by volunteers, experts say. Parents should be “attuned enough” to notice if “the kid who was happy and engaged until last month … starts breaking things, crying, being moody” — and should try to find out why, said Dr. Jonathan  Slavin, a clinical instructor in psychology at Harvard Medical School who works with adult survivors of trauma and sexual abuse.

Bullying Is a Big Problem

Every day thousands of teens wake up afraid to go to school. Bullying is a problem that affects millions of students, and it has everyone worried, not just the kids on its receiving end. Yet because parents, teachers, and other adults don’t always see it, they may not understand how extreme bullying can get. Bullying is when a person is picked on over and over again by an individual or group with more power, either in terms of physical strength or social standing.  READ MORE HERE
