Child abuse is a huge challenge that we as Safety/Foster Parents face daily. The horrific spirit of rejection and depression runs deep in its victims.
All children are special, trusting, and very impressionable. Abused children are quiet, afraid to speak out because they are ashamed, have low esteem, and most of all afraid. But your love can heal these deep wounds!.
Mom/Dad tell your abused child … “it’s NOT YOUR FAULT”! Encourage them to stop listening to the past and the discouraging words that were spoken to them. Begin to daily speak new positive and encouraging words over him/her. Childhood is precious, but fleeting and needs to be enjoyed; filled with innocent joy, unconditional love and discovery of life; with guidance on his/her path to become a well-adjusted adult.
