Victims of abuse in a plain community have asked us to provide support at a trial in the far North of Canada. Because of the distance involved, and because of the expected length of the trial due to the many victims and the serious charges, advocates need help with the funding to be able to provide support.
Let’s do our children a real favor, and be accurate in our teaching–not take an “easy shortcut” that leads to long-term harm.
Do we as adults ALWAYS know or remember exactly what to do right on the spur of the moment when faced with something scary and overwhelming? No. We do not.
