Learn to understand the signals that children send when they are abused

Unfortunately, nowadays we are seeing much more frequently domestic abuse, where unfortunately the only victims are the little children who in their innocence are unable to express in words what they are experiencing or feeling.

Because despite being so advanced in so many other things, such as technology, science, medicine, among others. Even in the street there is a lot of misinformation regarding 4bus0 and child abuse.

It is very important that people understand that abuse can come from any person, whether a family member, friend, acquaintance or stranger. Parents MUST NOT close their minds to the possibility, much less minimize their child’s comments. In order for the abused child to have the courage to speak out, he/she must first feel safe and protected by his/her caregiver.

It is because of this mistrust and lack of information that we see so many children being abused. Rarely do children have the courage or level of understanding to communicate a case of 4bus0. Parents cannot control what happens to their child 24 hours a day, unless they are with their child.
