the stat was that 20% of female college students were abused at school.
most colleges are trying to avoid culpability.
Is this topic about a commercial? YOU saw or is the topic about victims of child abuse? a more serious topic than a commercial.
Who reports child abuse?
Reports that came from teachers, law enforcement or legal representatives, or social service providers: 60% (teachers 17%; law enforcement 17%; social service 11%).
Haven't seen the commercial.
Any idea that could decrease the percentage of child abuse is positive. Unfortunaly, most abuse victims will not expose their abuse at or in a planned event.
Many teachers notice marks, bruises, scars on a child and are required to report. Neighbors, friends, relatives, may also report child abuse. I have on one occasion. I know many people who have reported suspected cases of child abuse.
I have a friend that looks for kids that might be abused. She was abused as a child. She goes overboard reporting people. Sometimes she's right.
There is no bad idea when abuse is concerned.
Yes, it's a good idea.
I don't know if you have kids or not. I have one and he's grown with a family.
Let's go with the twice a year guidance idea. Will this be a one on one meeting with each student or in an auditorium setting?
If my son came home from school and told me the counselor was asking about his home life, it wouldn't have set right with me. I'd drill him about what questions was asked. The counselor would most definitely receive a call about why he/she asking my child these questions about his home life. We'd have a problem.
On the other hand if the counselor can identify at least one child that is a victim of child abuse, it will be worth the outrage he/she will get from parents whose child is questioned about their home life.
