Don’t know how to talk to kids about sexual abuse?

We can help.


Hi, I'm Carolyn. I'm an author, speaker, writer, and mom on a mission —

to educate and encourage adults to talk to the children they love about sexual abuse.

Because sometimes the only thing between you and protecting your kids 

is an ongoing conversation.

Rise and Shine Movement is excited to host Show Hope’s Empowered to Connect simulcast on April 10 & 11 at Faith Church of Worcester in Fairview Village, PA. Join us for this two-day conference designed to help adoptive and foster parents, ministry leaders, churches, and professionals better understand how to connect with “children from hard places” in order to help them heal and become all that they can be.

We need YOUR help! April will be here before we know it, so TODAY is a great day to begin talking to your office, church, or school, youth sports organization or team, school community service or mom’s group about joining our 2nd Annual Great Teddy Bear Drive for sexually abused children!

It’s an easy way to spread awareness and show a hurting child some love.

What If Conversation Starters

4/1/2015 by: Christy M. Willard

April is Child Abuse Awareness month and we have some exciting things planned as we work to spread our sexual abuse prevention message to everyone who needs to hear it!

Watch this short video to hear what Rise and Shine Movement is doing this month:


Check back every Monday in April for our weekly video series of  "what if" conversation starters you can use to begin or continue the childhood sexual abuse conversation with your kids.

YOU can help US spread awareness by sharing our videos and posts on Facebook, retweeting us on Twitter, and re-pinning our resources on Pinterest.

1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually violated by their 18th birthday. We believe consistent conversations with toddlers through high school age children will equip, empower, and protect them.

Many don't have this important conversation with their kids -- some just don't even know where to start. Educate your friends and family on this important issue, during Child Abuse Awareness month, and throughout the year.

Rise and Shine Movement is here to help and you can, too! Because when we work together, we can protect more kids!
