4 Fearless Steps Every Parent Can Take to Prevent Childhood Sexual Assault
Tuesday, September 10th
6 pm
The Big Piney Library

About one in 7 girls and one in 25 boys will be sexually abused before they turn 181. And while talking to kids about childhood sexual abuse is never easy, prevention is an adult responsibility. In this evening presentation, parents and trusted caregivers will learn how to talk to their kids about sexual abuse prevention with courage and confidence. Presenter Carolyn Ruch is an author and founder of the Philadelphia based Rise And Shine Movement, an organization that works to equip parents with knowledge and confidence so they can educate and protect their children from childhood sexual abuse. Carolyn brings the experience of thirty years of parenting and has been equipping adults to protect kids for nearly a decade.

“Clear, concise, practical, tender, and real” are words commonly used to describe Carolyn’s presentation. Parents and trusted care givers will learn and even laugh as Carolyn weaves stories from her life and education from over a decade of prevention training. Carolyn will speak for 45 minutes, and after there will be a 15 minute question and answer session. Don't miss this important event.
