Help Your Children Protect Themselves...WATCH THIS VIDEO WITH YOUR KIDS!!

The statistics are awful and down right sickening to me...
1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys are sexually abused by their 18th birthday!
but we can do something, as parents to not only educate our children, but give them the tools they need to protect themselves from the possibility of it ever happening to them.

 "My Body Belongs To Me," based on the children’s book of the same name by Jill Starishevsky, is an animated short film aimed to educate children about sexual abuse and empower them to speak up.  It's a free and highly accessible educational tool for adults who want to begin a conversation with children about sexual abuse.

 Please (I beg you)...take the few short minutes it takes to watch this video with your kids (maybe even twice) to offer them the encouragement and education they need to hopefully help them to feel comfortable talking to someone about it...if something happens to them.  
This could prevent something from ever happening!

And please...share with your friends and family too!!  
We can all be a part of the education to protect our children!!
