I am going a step beyond a dysfunctional home as being a catalyst for victimization.... I have read far too many stories on here.

BEING HEARD. Our children need to be heard. They need a safe place to communicate and be listened to. In my opinion, that is the antidote. With my kids (12 and 9), I have given them scenarios and talked about what is appropriate or inappropriate. But I SEE THEM. I HEAR THEM. They know that they can get my attention, my ear and I will validate them. This is important because they don't need to get it elsewhere, and I think we all know that perps often use that to their advantage.
