Hide yo kids, hide yo wife!

Screen shot 2013-08-14 at 9.29.57 AMThe video from which this still comes is meant to be funny (though personally I find it offensive), but it brings up a lot of serious issues.  Our world is fallen, and although there are so many beautiful reasons i have to be happy, no one can deny that there is A LOT of evil out there, particularly when it comes to how people treat children.  Penn State Scandal, Casey Anthony case, etc, it seems to be everywhere we look.  It can be almost enough to make us want to stay indoors forever and never want to interact with anyone again (let alone have our own children), but I believe there are resources available to help us cope with this problem.  The following LDS General Conference address is a landmark talk on some ways to not only help us prevent (child) abuse, but also heal from it.

Read here. 

Parents, in sensitive, appropriate ways,

teach your children some of the warning signs of abuse.

I also like this resource because it helps us identify the location of predators so that we can better keep our children safe.

Do you have any other practical ideas to help us (from a grassroots perspective) combat this problem?  Lemme know:  katherineannewilkinson@gmail.com
