Is Your Child Being Groomed For Sexual Abuse?

Parents of abused kids usually cannot tell that the child was a victim, as children are less able to express sexual abuse if they go through it. Maybe as a result of parents being too busy to engage with their kids. It could also be because the kids don’t know the words to use to express molestation. Many times, they keep shut because they fear the consequences that accompany speaking up.   While one or two of the following behaviours can be explained away, if your child exhibits the majority of these behaviours, it’s safe to assume that something is wrong. Seek help from the appropriate authorities or a trusted professional. 1. They quit a beloved leisure activity or sport […]

Protect your kids from peer pressure with the X-Plan

If we think hard enough, I’m sure we can all think of a moment in our history when we felt cornered or forced to do something we didn’t want to.
