‘Will The Courageous: A Story About Sexual Abuse’

It is hard to explain to our kids what it is meant to be sexual abuse. Being innocent and naïve, at time they are too fearful to tell others plus not sure how to explain the situation. Sexual abuse kids will only feel uneasy without realizing what it is…

As parents, we have to be sensitive with our kids by noticing their change of behavior. In this story book "Will The Courageous: A Story About Sexual Abuse" by Amy Barth, Will became a totally different person as his mind was so disturb on what his nanny’s nephew had done on him. He was not sure what was it but he knew he did not feel comfortable. Will was fortunate to have parents and teacher who notice and observe his changes.

This book has given a good understanding to both kids and also parents on how to understand and manage the situation. After reading this book, I as parent must make sure we equip ourselves in educating our kids. Also, we need to take time to be close with our kids to ensure them that we are there for them so that they are feeling secure and not in fear. Be our kids’ good friend whom they can rely and trust on.

It is a great book for me to read with JL on our journey of learning and understanding…
