Child Sexual Abuse Part 1

Child sexual abuse is on the increase in our societies & it has had far reaching negative consequences in our  society. Most of the vices being perpetrated in our societies are done by people who were once victims of child abuse. Most juvenile cases in the society are as a result of broken homes, death of a parent, destitute children of various ages, and majority of those who end up as victims of child sexual abuse. 

To effectively tackle & deal with the issue of child sexual abuse parents need to be fully aware & conscious that the problem is real & actually happening around them.
