Mission Kids wants kids to know that it is all right, even necessary, to report the abuse.
In order for child abuse victims to begin the healing process, the abuse must first be reported. FULL STORY
I left a nice comment there-
This is absurd. Kids are already highly educated in school about reporting any imagined abuse. It's this FIRST THING a kid thinks of when they don't get their way, and they WILL use a false allegation as a club to punish their parents.
A better public service would be to educate kids what will happen to them in state custody-
"There are more than half a million children and youth in the U.S. foster care system today. Studies reveal that children are 11 times more likely to be abused in state care than they are in their own homes, and 7 times more likely to die as a result of abuse in the foster care system."-- John Walsh Show April 16, 2003
"As many as 75 percent of all children in foster care, upon leaving the system, will have experienced sexual abuse. One study by Johns Hopkins University found that the rate of sexual abuse within the foster-care system is more than four times as high as in the general population; in group homes, the rate of sexual abuse is more than 28 times that of the general population." --Sexual Abuse: An Epidemic in Foster Care Settings?

A better public service would be to educate parents how to answer the FALSE ALLEGATIONS when a CPS agent brings it to THEIR front door.
Truly, CPS destroys every life they touch.
