Presenting Princess Shaw Conversation Starters:

We encourage children to tell trusted adults about abuse, but Princess Shaw reports that when she told her mother, her mother defended the abuser and said, “I don’t think he was trying to do you like that.” Why might a parent defend an abuser rather than their child? What is the impact on a child when a parent doesn’t believe what they say about sexual abuse? If you were creating a public service announcement targeting parents whose children report abuse, what would the message say?
