Want to know two scary statistics about abuse?

image

Then go to www.itstimetotalkday.org!

On Tuesday I had the opportunity to attend an event hosted by The Moms, sponsored by Mary Kay & Verizon Wireless.

Denise Albert and Melissa Musen Getsten did had a fabulous Q & A session with a panel, and opened questions to the public.

US Gold Medalist Jordyn Wieber, her mother and actor Morris Chestnut were on the panel discussing their personal views about standing up to abuse. There was a parent discussing how she lost her daughter to abuse, as well as a teen who told us her heartfelt story which started by texting via text and the problems escalated.

Representatives from Verizon Wireless and Mary Kay both discussed their free services for these issues which could be found on their websites.

1 out of 3 teens have either been abused verbally, sexually or physically, & 3 out of 4 parents have never had a conversation about this topic!

Those two statistics were startling to me, which I felt the need to spread the word, & you can too!

We as parents need to start earlier than middle school or high school with these conversations!

As early as age five, you can begin to discuss hitting, good touching and bad touching with your child. Having your pediatrician yearly at well visits discuss what you feel comfortable about your child learning, is an easy way to handle start the conversation.

I also brought up the fact that on playdates or on the playground, is a great opportunity for parents to step in. For extreme teasing, roughhousing or when a child says, “Stop!” or “No!”, we need to discuss what this means, and for them to RESPECT these boundaries!

It is imperative that we model and talk to our children about these issues when you have a, “teachable moment”. Whether it be watching a movie or a tv show, reading a book or stepping in when they are playing with friends. Children need to understand what is okay and what is not, so start today!

Want to save a life?

image

Then take the pledge with me at, www.itcanwait.com for it can save lives!

Yesterday on the news, I listened to a mother’s anguish of losing her eight month old baby to someone texting, & crashing into her stroller!

It bothered me all day, & her words made me reflect & decide to take the pledge of not texting while driving.

Whether it be at a traffic light, or stop sign, it is the law, that no one driving a motor vehicle is allowed to operate a handheld device!

If something is so important, pull over to text, or read, because it can take just that, to get into an accident!
