One of the things we worry about the most as parents is keep our kids safe. We see so many instances in the news of the kidnappings and killings of children, of serial molesters and rapists, and of the rampant use of child porn.
Here are some scary facts:
· Over 2,100 children go missing every day, that’s one child every 40 seconds.
· 1 in 6 boys is sexually abused before the age of 16.
· There are 728,345 registered sex offenders in the United State.
· The re-arrest rate of convicted child molesters is 52%
