I really appreciate this website taking their stand on assisting individuals cope with this troubling matter. I just wanted to say let us all work together in surpressing this matter by being alert. In addition pay attetion to you relatives, friend & neighbors because at times families may appear to have it all but; behind closed doors they are hiding a different story.

*To get help or report abuse in the US or Canada, call the Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453).*

Certainly here in my country Ireland Through th Media and all interested bodies the highlighting and making us aware that abuse was epedemic in past generations in Families and Institutions but now with the greater awareness in safeguarding children from abuse that Epedemic is a word I would not use here: But then as the writer of the comment states alot still goes on behind closed doors that we must be vigilant about: Sadly trafficing in young girls/boys for sexual preditors has reached a big high in Ireland and that is still very unde-cover abuse: That seems to be the way the world over: We must (I must) let my voice be heard where I know this is taking place: Thank You: simple two words but most powerfull when expressed from the heart:
