GirlsHealth.Gov

Girlshealth.gov was created in 2002 by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Office on Women’s Health (OWH) to help girls (ages 10 to 16) learn about health, growing up, and issues they may face. Girlshealth.gov promotes healthy and positive behaviors in girls, giving them reliable and useful health information in a fun, easy-to-understand way. The website also provides information to parents and educators to help them teach girls about healthy living.

Our tagline is “Be Happy. Be Healthy. Be You. Beautiful.” It focuses on the idea that being yourself — finding what makes you smile and how to live well — is what makes you “you.” And that is beautiful!

Children Now–Talking with Kids

These practical tips and techniques can help you talk easily and openly with young children ages 8 to 12 about some very tough topics.

Watching Them Survive

This website was compiled by a Partner of a survivor. When she revealed the source of the pain, hurt, confusion and trials, suddenly it became clear to that these episodes of abuse were a tremendously defining event in her life. It had altered her personality, growth and joy for the rest of her life. Our marriage and family was in shambles now, by and large, as the result of the snowballing of twisted reality that she lived with everyday. But now it was time… She could not fight it alone. Each time she tried she was swallowed more and more. So it was time for me to fight. So began another long and hard road, but this time it had purpose, focus and guidance. No longer would she go quietly into the night! Now she would walk in the Light of Truth…

This website it dedicated to that journey…

The journey of Watching Them Survive…

Abuse survivors have many resources dedicated to helping them cope, survive and heal. I have posted many of those resources on this site. However; upon my journey, I discovered the tremendous lack of support, resources and help for those secondary survivors. Those of us who somehow found ourselves in the mist of the fog right along with the survivor themselves. What can we do? We are here to help each other along that path. This site is a place to share support, ideas, fellowship, advice and encouragement.
