Blog Against Child Abuse - December 2014 Edition!
The December 2014 Edition of the Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse is up at Kate Is Rising. Thank you to Kate for hosting again this month. Be sure to check it out at Kate Is Rising.
So many survivors have a tough time during this season dealing with memories or with having to see family. If this is you, please have a plan in place.
- Be aware of your triggers.
- Remember that "No" is a complete sentence.
- You don't have to go see family, and if you do go for a visit, you don't have to stay there if you feel unsafe or uncomfortable.
- Set an alarm on your phone to ring part way through your holiday event, so you have an easy excuse and reminder to go in another room and call someone safe - just in case you need that break.
The Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse provides an opportunity to raise awareness about the serious issue of child abuse and to share important posts with others who might not be frequent readers of an author's blog. There are so many wonderful bloggers who are contributing to the cause of ending and recovering from child abuse.
If you, as a reader or author, know of other blogs that you find helpful, please encourage them to submit to an upcoming issue of the Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse so we can continue to receive high quality submissions from a wide swath of bloggers.
Many thanks to all of you who shared your hearts and stories with us, and to all of you who read the submissions and show your support. You keep this carnival, the awareness, support, and healing going each month.
