Child Sexual Abuse More Common Than Many Think
One in 10 children will be sexually abused before the age of 18. That statistic should serve as a reminder that incidents like the one involving reality TV star Josh Duggar are unfortunately not unique.
One of the objectives of LouisianaChildren.org, in partnership with CASA and Children’s Advocacy Centers statewide, is abuse prevention.
One of the most important steps you can take is to make sure that every youth-focused organization in your community has been trained in child sexual abuse prevention and response.
Those who work with children should also be trained to recognize signs and know how to intervene to stop suspicious behaviors or abuse.
