1 in 6 men have experienced sexually abusive issues by the age of 18. Why does this have to happen? This website (and yours truly) thinks that this number is probably a low estimate, considering many people do not report their sexual abuse issues. If you are that 1 in 6, or that 2 in 6, or whatever–remember, and keep this in mind–you are not alone. This site, and many others will help you remember this and keep supporting you along the way.
The North Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (NCDJJDP) has created a website to help stop school violence. Finding out positive ways to deal with youth development for ALL youths can help curb some of the horrible violence that happens now. Education is the best knowledge–the best way to help children understand that violence IS NOT the answer to issues in school.
The idea behind this website is that if every child can get a good, overall, balanced healthy school meal and school day while being treated fairly and responsibly, perhaps our days of school violence could be put behind us. Wishful thinking perhaps, but one less school violence issue is well worth it, psychologically-wise as well as socially-wise.
The American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children is the leading national organization supporting professionals who serve children and families affected by child maltreatment and violence.
This site represents more than just â€œbook knowledgeâ€ or clinical experience, however. It also incorporates my experiences as a family member and pro bono advocate for the Touretteâ€™s Syndrome community. As the parent of two young adults with TS+ and as the spouse of a man with TS+, I know some of the pain and challenges that family members face on a daily basis.
This web site is my way of sharing some of what Iâ€™ve learned personally and professionally in my journey over the past 21 years. If it helps another family, teacher, or colleague, I am delighted.
