Gwen Knight from Prevent Child Abuse Utah (PCAU) is speaking out about child abuse and what we all can do to help stop these crimes.
Gwen shared that one in five children will experience child sexual abuse before the age of 18. One child is too many. So we all need to be proactive about recognizing, resisting and reporting.
Positive parenting is a must! Preventing abuse is up to all of us whether we have children or not. There are resources to help you take the steps in preventing abuse, take free online tutorial, campaign resources, and websites.
PCAU offers two programs, home visiting in Weber County and statewide school programs. Programs are built to educate parents, adults and children. Call your school or go online to request PCAU to visit your school.
