A parent’s #1 job is to keep his or her children safe, yet 80% of all child abuse cases involve some form of neglect. We do our best to care for and protect our children in the obvious ways, but what about protecting them from child abuse? Before today’s guest, child advocate and trained child forensic interviewer, Ginger Kadlec, became immersed in this work, she admits that she was, like many of us, “…one of those people who knew child abuse existed, but I didn’t really have a firm grasp on just how vast a problem it is.” Annie talks with Ginger about educating parents and other caring adults to help protect the children in their lives.
