BALTIMORE - On Good Morning Maryland @ 9, Adam Rosenburg, executive director of the Baltimore Child Abuse Center explained that teacher your children from what is right and what is wrong can help to spot sexual abuse when it is happening.
According to Rosenburg, from the cases seen at the Child Abuse Center, 55% of perpetrators were relatives or household members of the abused, 27% were other known persons; only 10% were cited as a “stranger or unknown,” and 35% of all abusers were under the age of 18.
Rosenburg says nationally, one in four girls will be sexually abused, and one in six boys will be sexually abused before they reach age 18.
The Center hopes to teach children about the right and wrong kinds of touching and how they should handle situations where they are being touched inappropriately. Center workers are trying to get children to understand this tough topic in a fun way.
