Reducing Risk of Childhood Sexual Abuse
There is an estimated 39 Million survivors of childhood sexual abuse existing in America today.
Sadly, child sexual abuse is happening at an epidemic rate in our society. Children are the victims in nearly 70% of all reported sexual assaults. The median age for sexual abuse is 9 years old. 1 out of every 4 girls and 1 out of every 6 boys will be sexually abused before they turn 18. Most child victims never report the abuse. Those who sexually abuse children are drawn to settings where they can gain easy access to children.
In seconds a child's life can be shattered. Their innocence stolen forever. The effect of sexual abuse devastate and haunts victims for years. Victims struggle with guilt, shame, depression, anger, low self-esteem, self-hate, poor grades in school, and unhealthy sexual behaviors. Childhood sexual abuse also
increases the likelihood of substance abuse, eating disorders, teen pregnancy, violent crimes and suicide
