"Rise and Shine Movement" is an organization whose purpose is to educate and encourage adults to talk to the children they love about sexual abuse.
Please visit the Rise and Shine Movement website for more information. On the website you will find a free children's book,"Rise and Shine: A Tool for the Prevention of Childhood Sexual Abuse," written by Carolyn Ruch, that you can watch with your children. Or you can buy it here.
You also have access to important discussion questions, valuable resources, and you can offer support by joining the movement.
Please "Like" Rise and Shine Movement on Facebook. And "Follow" them on Twitter.
I have written about my own experiences with childhood sexual abuse on this blog and as a guest writer on Tamar's Redemption.
