So many children end up being sexually abused because parents, who are high on drugs and alcohol, are not watching them! These kids are lured by strange adults, ornery teens and abused children to go into parked cars, dark rooms, basements, and other hiding places away from watchful eyes. Children are bullied, sexually abused, teased, pressured to drink or use drugs, and more in those areas.
Who will hear screams when music is being played loudly? Who will notice when children are away to long with an Uncle, Cousin, Aunt or someone else? Who is watching when kids are so-called "just playing"?
Keep children in view or else cry later.
