Ep. 45 - What Do You Do If Your Child Is Sexually Abused? Protect & Prevent. Ft. Becca (Survivor) & Arianna (Therapist) *Trigger Warning
*Trigger Warning: Familia we would like to give you a warning because we will be discussing a very sensitive matter. As a parent how do you handle the tragic news that your child has been sexually abused and even better how can we prevent this?
How do you become proactive to better educate your children and ourselves in this matter, at what age should you start talking to your kids about this? And what signs can indicate that maybe your child has suffered abuse without them telling you.
We had two amazing guests with us on this episode. We are beyond grateful for their courage and wisdom. Our Brave and Super Talented friend Becca Guzman who’s a Survivor and Arianna Gonzalez who’s a Licensed MF Therapist that has dealt with hundreds of cases like this. We pray that this episode can help heal, educate and empower us to know how to prevent child abuse and protect them as much as we can.
Below are some reading materials to further educate yourself about this matter.
Here is a link to children books;
