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.

Our 3rd Annual Stuffed Animal Drive is Well Underway!

April is Child Abuse Awareness month and we have some wonderful things planned to help parents and spread awareness!


Mondays in April we’re releasing a special video series we’ve created for parents, by parents. Come back each week (on our Continuing the Conversation blog) for a new tip you can use in your home to protect your kids from sexual abuse.


We have also launched our 3rd Annual #GreatTeddyBearDrive for child victims of sexual abuse. Each year, during the month of April, we collect new stuffed animals that we donate to the Philadelphia Children’s Alliance, a non-profit group that serves kids who have disclosed sexual abuse. PCA sees roughly 200 kids per month and each child gets to choose a snuggly stuffed animal to comfort them through the process. Would you consider donating this year?

Together we can protect the children of the world.
