Parenting Children with a History of Sexual Abuse Webinar
Thursday, July 13, 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm CST
This webinar will address why so many children in care engage in sexually acting out behaviors, help parents to know how to approach these issues when they arise, and will also discuss how parents can equip the children already in their home for what to do when a new sibling struggles in this area.
