Help Parents Stop Child Abuse

We Help Parents & Stop Child Abuse!

I’m sickened by the thousands of child abuse stories making headlines today. Statistics tells us that 3 million children witness violence in their home daily and more than 7 children die from abuse every day in America. Read more statistics here.

Sadly, I’ve been on both sides of the child abuse spectrum and am not proud of that. However, I am proud that I got my life together, broke the cycle of abuse, and healed so I can help others. Read My Story.

In my fight against child abuse and raising awareness and funds, I’ve had numerous people, ready to donate a dollar or more, come up to me and ask, “Is this for animal abuse?” but when I say it’s to help stop child abuse and bullying of people and pets, sadly many of them put their money back into their pocket and walk away.

Today the general public seems to have more love and compassion for pets than they do people. I love animals too. I have three amazing dogs. And I know from past experiences that dogs can give us a nurturing and healing that humans cannot. So in our Abuse Bites Program we often rescue dogs and train them for pet therapy.

We use our dogs in our FREE anti-abuse workshops to bring therapy to abused children, bullied teens, battered women, and even sick or hurting adults. We educate the public on all forms of abuse, bullying, and violence, teaching safety and prevention methods, and offer complete healing to all.

Upon researching some recent stories, it’s obvious that safety, prevention and healing is what’s so urgently needed. Not only for these dear, precious children, but also those entrusted to give them care.

Two mothers (from different sides of the United States, Florida and Texas) recently left their young children in their hot vehicles while they went into the bar to get their fix. One of those children was only a toddler. The windows were slightly cracked and he was yelling for help. Thankfully a good Samaritan heard his desperate cries for help and called the police. Both women were charged and booked, leaving their children to be tended to by the state. Read full story.

These aren’t even the worst cases of child abuse I’ve found. At the end of this article, I’ve listed links to some of the most horrifying child neglect and abuse cases in history.

 

It’s clearly evident these mothers and many other parents are battling their own abuse and addictions. They need help. We want to give them that help. With your support, we can bring the help and healing that is needed to these precious families. By sharing our true stories of child abuse, addiction, bullying, neglect, and how we survived, we can empower other parents to change, get the help they need, and be better mothers, fathers, parents. Donation and Sponsorship Opportunities.

We also interact with children and teens of all ages to help them speak up if they’re being abused and bullied so they can get the critical help they need now before it’s too late.

Abuse Bites Workshops are offered in schools, churches, work places, and communities throughout Michigan and the United States. Contact Lisa Freeman, Founder and CEO for more information on speaking and advocating about abuse in your community.
