I’m talking to social activist and rainmaker, Cherie Benjoseph, LCSW.  She has a passion for empowering children in order to keep our kids safe.  As co-founder of the KidSafe Foundation, she works with community leaders, kids, parents, guardians, foster care, and child-serving professionals to improve defining the ever-changing issues around protecting children.  Because, in order to keep kids safe we need to educate adults, parents, and their caregivers as well. Predators, pedophiles, and perpetrators groom not only the kids, but the community as well. 

 Cherie Benjoseph says, “We teach children to recognize their feelings, go to their Safe Adults, and speak assertively when they feel uncomfortable.  Through a fun—not fearful—interactive education, they can be taught what a right to safety really means and that there is strength and support in asking for help.”

Now, more than ever, it is critical that we work to keep our kids safe. Pornhub is the 10th most visited website in the world and has 113 Million downloads a day of child sexual abuse and child pornography. There is more child sexual assault, stalking, blackmailing of children through fear of their sexual images being circulated on the internet than ever before!  Predators can abuse, assault, blackmail, and perpetrate online. Gaming, social media, are where many of today’s child predators are lurking posing as 13-year olds, and preying on our children. Just as technology changes, so must the protection of our kids so that the next generation can live healthy, productive, trauma-free lives. Cherie’s mission is to keep our KidSafe and free from child sexual abuse and exploitation. “It is attainable”, she says.
