Have you ever thought about what it must be like for a young person to be hurt repeatedly by someone they love and trust? Someone who puts food on the table or does their laundry and drives them to activities? What must it be like for a child or youth to watch someone they love hurt someone else who they love?
Can you imagine the impact this might have on how these young people see the world, interact at school or function in relationships? How they raise their own children?
A recent study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal states that more than one third of Canadians have suffered some form of child abuse in their lives. Consider then that a third of the young people at one of our local colleges or universities, a third of the young people in your neighbourhood, a third of the adults in your workplace have suffered some form of child abuse.
