Annual Parent Empowerment Program
Nov

Annual Parent Empowerment Program

Parents tell us that their biggest nightmare is to learn that their child has been sexually abused. They are paralyzed with fear and don’t know how to get ahead of it—by talking to their kids about body safety; teaching them boundaries and appropriate vs. inappropriate behavior; what to do when a kid tells them that someone has touched them sexually.

To make things worse, the majority of the time the child molester is someone the parents know. That’s right—parents get blindsided and overwhelmed when they learn that someone they trusted is doing the abuse. Sometimes it occurs in our homes, on a family trip or at a block party.

Let’s keep going, we continue to see headlines that the institutions that are supposed to put children first – are actually protecting themselves before the child when cases of sexual abuse crop up. USA Gymnastics, the Catholic Church, Schools, Teachers, Camps  - you get the idea. Spoiler alert: Child Molesters like to be around kids so they can keep their victim pipeline stocked. They are predators who do a good job at coming across “nice” and being “not someone who would do something like that.”

Enter P.A.X.A. Parents Against Child Sex Abuse. We are the bold voice for saving children from sexual abuse. We hold an annual Parent Empowerment Program designed to equip parents on how to talk to your kids as young as two years old; how to identify sex abuse symptoms; and how to navigate reporting and the pursuit of justice. 


THIS EVENT IS FREE TO ATTEND 

Suggested Donation is $30.
