No one ever knew that when I was 10 years old, my babysitter’s son sexually abused me. My mother suspected something wasn't right, but she didn’t know how to talk to me about it.
Forty-nine years later, I still feel the effects: PTSD, panic attacks, low self-esteem. But since I shared my story, I’ve found that speaking out is helping me heal – and helping prevent the same thing from happening to another child.
Darkness to Light’s Stewards of Children® online training teaches adults how to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse, including tips for talking about it. Nearly one million people have participated in this unique program. Through the powerful voices of survivors, you’ll learn how to see the signs of child sexual abuse and what to do when you suspect a child is being abused.

My journey hasn't been easy, but I'm proud to have found the courage to speak out as a survivor. Now I'm working to make sure everyone knows what to look for, so that no other children have to suffer through what I did.
Please, take the time to learn what you can do to protect the children in your life.
