Two main risks to children using the Internet – Internet contact and Internet content

By |

Your child cannot see the person at the other end of the computer. There is no way for children to know who they are talking to. The paedophile will start an innocent conversation with your child. They are very good at posing as young children and are up to date with what children like, are interested in and the latest trends. At first, the questions will be innocent and seemingly harmless.

My husband and I are in the fortunate position where both our parents are alive and involved in our child’s life. Although they live far away, we ensure that they visit us regularly or we try to visit them as often as possible. Whenever I see our little one interacting with her grandparents I am in awe of the total bliss and delight both parties experience. It made me realize just how important this intergenerational relationship is and how much everyone involved can benefit from it.

A MOTHERS STORY – Child Sexual Abuse

By |

“My son, was sexually abused by a predator. I felt as though my son’s life and mine had come to an end. As a result I blamed myself and hated myself. How could I not have seen?

There was no light at the end of the tunnel.

Oh, but the TIREDNESS. I will never forget. Never ever, ever, ever!! It lasted for 18 years (sorry my dearest sisters). One night I woke up and I couldn’t find my sweetheart last born - oh my freak! She was lying on the carpet! What was happening to me? How did she land there? Was I going to be arrested for child abuse? I could just see the headlines: “Social worker abandons newborn on floor”.

Help! My kind wil nie meer lewe nie!

Dit is iets wat ek geen ouer toewens nie. Ons as ouers wil tog die beste vir ons kinders hê, ons wil hê dat hul gelukkig moet wees en moet uitsien na ‘n rooskleurige toekoms waarin hulle hul drome kan verwesenlik. Die realiteit is egter dat baie kinders voel asof hul nie meer wil lewe nie en dink daaraan om selfmoord te pleeg – ten spyte van ouers se beste poging om hul kinders gelukkig te hou.
