Stupid Things People Say Not to Report Child Abuse


Stupid things people say not to report child abuse:
sexual, physical, and psychological.

  1. My grandfather (or whomever) may have to go to jail.
  2. He/she is too old/young to be prosecuted.  You will ruin his/her life.
  3. Can you imagine what could happen to him/her if he/she had to go to jail?
  4. Just let it go. Quit living in the past.
  5. They aren't my kids, so it's not my responsibility.
  6. Keep me out of it!
  7. Well, she/he must have done something to get that treatment.
  8. It was so long ago; just forget about it.
  9. Don't tell me the gory details.  Leave me out of it.
  10. Every child has to go through tough times.
  11. A little slap or two won't hurt.
  12. Reporting this will destroy our family (as if it hasn't already).
  13. Nobody needs to know.
  14. But he/she didn't do it to me; therefore, he/she couldn't have done it to you.
  15. Don't stress.  Don't hurt mother and/or father.  It will devastate her and/or him if you talk about it.  Keep quiet.
  16. My all time favorite (sarcastically speaking): It was nothing!

Throw Out Balance and Replace it With This

On the internet running through blog, Facebook, and IG posts or videos, there is always a wave of the same concepts of discussion each week. One person/business throws out an idea to talk about that week, and then many others (to figure out what they can discuss, post, or video that week) grab onto someone else's topic and put another spin on it. That's it. If you pay close attention to the posts, you will see what I am talking about. Take a look at the weekly discussions and see the uniformity in the topics of discussion, including the quotes that are posted. Perhaps it is coincidental. Perhaps it is collective energetic thought that brings this about. But, in most cases, I'm thinking it may be more about "What do I talk about this week?" and then grab an idea from someone else.

It is difficult to find weekly, let alone daily, topics to discuss and, at the same time, give good value to your audience. I get that. I've done the same thing. I'm guilty, but…

5 Strategies to Support Trauma Survivors

TRAUMA and ISOLATION

There is no single treatment for complex trauma such as PTSD or Complex PTSD, but the cornerstone of treatment is building a collaborative working relationship with the survivor. They need to restore safety and trust in human connection. The major drawbacks to healing from chronic trauma and C-PTSD is isolation. If individuals fear coming forward (due to stigma, minimization of the events, delayed reporting, an oppressive society, self-shame or public shaming) and how they may react to their environment, they are left to figure things out on their own. There are many individuals that never receive formal treatment and, instead, invest in their own methods by trial-and-error. I did because there was nothing out there. Also, anytime I'd go to the doctors office, it was said that "It was all in my head." Back then in the 80's and 90's and early 2000's, no one could see the enduring effects of chronic childhood abuse, repeated sexual assaults…

Our NOW Is Littered With Our Past

"Trying to resist, change, or avoid the enormous influence of the past keeps us foolishly focused on it. Yet we're reluctant to leave it behind, reluctant to transform the pervasive hold it has on our present-time lives. Not doing so, however, results in an endless continuum of living a "now" that is littered with the detritus of the past. There is no better arena to watch this play out than in our relationships."~Nancy Zapolski
