When it comes to sexual abuse, stranger danger is a MYTH.
"Research shows that the greatest risk to children doesn't come from strangers, but from friends, family, and adults we know.
People who abuse children look and act just like everyone else.
In fact, they often go out of their way to appear trustworthy, seeking out settings where they can gain easy access to children such as sporting teams, faith centers, clubs, and schools.
Not to mention the new risk for online sexual abuse. We have to know where the red flags are and get ahead of them before trouble starts."
-Kimberly King, Author of I Said No!

*Content Warning: Sexual Abuse & Sexual Assault
The #MeToo movement has been a catalyst to where we are now- openly discussing rape culture and calling it out for what it is.
But what’s next?
We are at a tipping point and in order for us to move forward and being able to say #NeverAgain, we need to actively and PROactively take measures to create #consentculture. In this episode I talk about how we can do that- ALL of us!

Teaching consent isn't just about teaching your kids that no one is allowed to touch them.
It's also about everyday situations.
It's ultimately about body autonomy/sovereignty!
