There are many things I like writing about and some things not so much. One of those things is molestation. It is one of those things that unless you have experienced it, you cannot comprehend all the feelings that you are left with. I decided to write my new guide: Surviving sexual Interference: The power of knowing that you did nothing wrong because I feel as if all stories of this sickness must be exposed.
The sadness of molestation is that either you have been through it personally or you know someone who has experienced it. I strongly believe that there is a pedophile in every family. You need to know who the pedophile is in your family. So that you can protect your children.
A few years ago I was sharing my own story with one of my best friends and she made a statement that I thought was so profound. She said it shouldn't even be called molestation but interference. She explained that it was the worst "interference" to a child's development.
I explore what I believe to be the five stages after Interference(AI) and also offer up some tips that will help anyone dealing with this issue.
One of my key message is the idea that we are not to keep silent about molestation but rather have the courage to #tellsomeone.
Tell your own story.... tell everyone and anyone until someone hears you and does something about it.
Wife and mother of 4 kids. Three time climber on the CN Tower. With a best time of 28 minutes. I use to have the t-shirt to prove it. I love mangoes and Okra( yes that slimy vegetable). But not together. That would be just odd. Favorite movie is "Pay it Forward"
