you make valid points, but what do we do?We go to schools and talk to kids, but the parents still are an issue... they do not believe their children until its way too late.... i have been thru this and i wanted to take the mother out and slap her silly. she called her daughter every name there was. The girl was telling the truth. her abuse went on for years. The adults in her life failed her. Now how do we get over that hurdle? If the news media hasn't made it clear to these parents that the child isn't a liar how do we?
