GREEN BAY – It’s not a training you want to ever have to use. But its one that could change a life.
As a Child Care Director Katrina Puyleart is around kids everyday so safety and protection is number one in her book.
“If we suspect or are inquiring if theres a situation we do need to report it to authorities” says Puyleart.
But it's not always an easy thing to do. So Jamie Trampty-Brassfield runs a training on child sex abuse with Family & Childcare Resources of N.E.W
She helps train people to prevent recognize and respond to child sex abuse..
“The awareness is the largest part of it and building relationships with kids is also important so that kids know you're a safe person to talk to”
Giving providers the tools they need because it's not up the child to speak out but the adults to know when something is wrong.
About 1 in 10 children experience child sexual abuse before their 18th birthday. This number and the consequences are staggering.
Future training is open to the public and can be scheduled by groups who deal with children. For information on the training contact Family & Childcare Resources of N.E.W.
