Parents who Understand Pain (PUP)
We have mentors whose children have experienced sexual abuse that are readily available to provide support and a safe environment to share and ask questions. It is important for parents to have the knowledge and support to help their child through this time. Parents need to have their emotional needs met as well. Regardless of if your child is currently suffering abuse or if it happened years ago, our mentors are here for you. This will give the parent tools to help their child (young or old) to heal and help the parent to understand what is “normal” behavior for victims. We will discuss the many side effects of abuse and what parents can say and do to help their child heal. Parents can have a tremendous impact on helping their children’s healing journey.
