Home Secretary Warns About Vile Child Images On Social Media

Posted by Sandra On April - 13 - 2017 ADD COMMENTS

Facebook should not be a safe space for pedophiles and terrorists to share ‘hateful’ pictures and videos, the Home Secretary insisted last night. Amber Rudd spoke out after the social media site was accused of endangering the lives of youngsters by refusing to remove child abuse images. Child protection charities said sex abuse pictures on Facebook act like a gateway drug to would-be pedophiles, encouraging them to abuse youngsters in real life. Material including sexual images of children and gruesome terror videos were still rife on the social network yesterday. READ MORE HERE

Posted by Sandra On April - 6 - 2017 ADD COMMENTS

Healthcare staff ‘backed off’ a mother who jumped to her death while holding her newborn baby because she was ‘middle class and articulate’, a new report revealed today. Charlotte Bevan, 30, vanished from St Michael’s Hospital in Bristol with her four-day-old daughter Zaani Tiana Bevan Malbrouck in her arms. She walked off the maternity ward holding her four-day-old child and walked past at least four nurses without being stopped. The new mother – who had a long history of mental illness – threw herself into Avon Gorge in November 2014 still cuddling Zaani around 40 minutes after leaving hospital.

12 Child Sex Abuse Statistics All Parents Need To Know

Posted by Sandra On April - 6 - 2017 ADD COMMENTS


As a parent and an educator I find the statistics below both confronting and horrifying. However, they do highlight the reasons WHY we need to teach the children in our care Body Safety from the earliest of years. Such age-appropriate knowledge is empowering for children, and might well be the difference between a child becoming one of these statistics or not.

As an advocate for Body Safety Education in both homes and schools, I have heard many sad and crippling stories from adult survivors; but it’s this one shared comment that stays with me, “If only I had known from the first inappropriate touch it was wrong, my life could have been so different.”

I am not a survivor of childhood sexual abuse but I am a mother and teacher who believes we can do better by our kids. We need to put our adult fear of this topic aside, and take on the responsibility of educating our children so they know to tell, and keep on telling until they are believed. We also have a responsibility to educate ourselves so we know the signs of sexual abuse and grooming. Believing a child when they disclose sexual abuse is of the utmost importance, as is our reaction to the disclosure.

These statistics are a call to action for parents, carers and teachers everywhere — let’s educate ourselves and our kids in Body Safety, and like any good “ripple effect,” let’s educate others to do the same! I am asking you to play your part. Ironically, you may never know but your advocacy could positively change a child’s life forever. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE
