Rafael Nunez: Learn More About Sexual Abuse and Paedophilia

When we talk about sexual abuse and paedophilia, it is important to mention that this type of abuse to minors do not always occur through physical contact. The non-contact abuse happens when the child is exposed to pornography or to explicit images that he or she gets from the abuser, who usually takes on social networks to get in contact with its victims and convince them to do things most kids do not understand. Generally, the child gets threated by the abuser of hurting them if they dare to tell their parents. That’s when children fall into a kind of abuse known as grooming.

That is, without a doubt, a terrible amount of cases that should be brought down to none immediately. The most worrying part is that it is only the official number, meaning that there are many other cases in which the victim does not speak up about the situation they’re living. (more…)

Did you know that in the UK, almost every ten minutes a police department receives a phone call denouncing a case of grooming? It’s a worrying amount of phone calls, don’t you think?

Rafael Nuñez - Online Safety

Without a doubt, Internet has a whole universe of entertainment for children to explore online. There, they can play, learn, create, and connect. Especially that, connect with other people. There’s where the hazard starts.

It is important that us, as adults, guide our kids to understand all the dangers and how vulnerable they are when navigating on the net on their own. (more…)
