How You can Make A Differenceby Pam Coronado
We all realize the complexity of our society's ills, but many of us have differing opinions on the cure. I have several practical suggestions which I will outline below, but first I would like to address the problems. Teaching self-defense, setting up neighborhood watches, etc., are highly recommended, and yet are only surface fixes.
Society is caught in a vicious cycle that must be broken. Adults have got to stop abusing children, thus creating more abusers. Period. We are creating a new generation of abusers as surely as I sit here and write this. Violence against children and sexual molestation are running rampant in this country and yet receive very little attention from politicians and the media. Why isn't this problem being addressed?
Look at all of the "stop smoking" messages and public pressure against tobacco companies these days. Look at the police and political force against drug use. Great! But what about child molestation? What about our future generation? Sure, we are talking about it more openly than we did 20 or even ten years ago, but has that decreased the aberrant behavior? Not in the least. Talking about it doesn't stop it. We have to start doing something about it.
I was shocked in one of my investigations to learn that a registered sex offender in the state of Arizona was allowed to live with his 12-year-old step-daughter after his release from jail. No questions asked. No social workers questioning her. This offender was arrested for exposing himself to a 13-year old girl. Why do our laws allow this? Obviously, the mother is not taking steps to protect her own child, then I feel society should.
So what can YOU do to make a difference?
1. Speak to every child you meet, with courtesy and kindness. It really doesn't take much effort to make a positive impact on a child's life who may have little going for them at home.Contact me for more information on making a difference in your community or to arrange a speaking engagement for your group or school.
