For Sexual Assault Awareness & Prevention Month, Andrew Kardon of Mommy's Busy, Go Ask Daddy is drawing attention to alarming statistics from the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN). Among the staggering numbers: Over 250,000 people are sexually assaulted each year in the U.S. And 15% of these victims were children under the age of 12. Among boys, 4-year-olds are most at risk, while girls are most likely to be targeted at the age of 14.
Andrew advises that, "If anyone does anything inappropriate, your kids need to know that they can and should say something. They need to know that they are safe and secure with you and should feel free to Say Anything. (See, it's not just a great movie, it's a great motto for life."
If children realize they're being inappropriately touched or simply just approached by a stranger, it's beneficial for them to have a tool on hand to call for help. SABRE's red Personal Alarm with Key Ring can be heard up to 600' (185M) away and easily attaches to your child's backpack. It also happens to support the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network.
