Through the month of April, across the blogosphere, we will be talking about Child Sexual Abuse Awareness. Over 40 blogs will be participating, survivors will tell us their stories, some of them anonymous, child counsellors and educationists will write in, NGOs working in this field will post on the subject. All aimed towards teaching us to be aware, alert, and be able to empower our children to resist child abuse. To give us the strength to tackle it if it does happen, and to create the awareness about the fact that yes, it does, with over 50 per cent of our children and very often the abuser is not a stranger but someone from within the family itself or someone who is a close family friend or relative and has unrestricted access to our children.
We are welcoming posts, stories and opinions on this topic.
