Joseph Hayden Boston, an 18-year-old Californian, got arrested after confessing to his own mother he had molested two children – age 8 and 4- in the motel where he was staying over the weekend.

The two young boys were also staying in the facility with their parents, and allegedly, their parents had allowed them to go into the suspect’s room.

Boston, who was handed to the police by his own mother, had confessed molesting about 50 children since he was 10 years old in different places where he has lived. Detectives from the Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Unit assisted in the investigation, where the suspect was booked into the Robert Presley Detention Centre, with a bail set at $1m.

The corpse of a pedophile priest was found at his Massachusetts home after being stabbed many times on his chest. Also, the police report indicated injuries of a very large blade being inserted into his rectum, which ended up on fatally damaging several of his internal organs, which made him bleed to death.

The police believed the aggression was made by more than one person, as it was hard to believe that only one person could’ve done all the harm and not being hurt by its victim. As well as the damages mentioned above, the assailant removed the genitals of the priest.

Father Archambault was the name of the priest who had been accused of abusing 29 children on multiple occasions, with victims being 5 to 11 years old. And even when only 26 cases were officially investigated by the Vatican, claiming there wasn’t enough evidence to conclude the other three cases, it was decided to forbid the sins and to leave it as a church matter, leaving the police out of the case.

The families of the victims were outraged by how the Church uncovered the criminal, asking for real justice. And as a response, the Church only published an open letter to the families stating that the case is now declared closed.

On the other hand, the Catholic Church released a statement expecting to bring the priest’s killers to justice on the near future.

We all know these celebrities as big influencers on pop culture, their lives have been exposed so many times for us to judge and admire. They all seem to be all happy and gracious. However, sometimes things aren’t exactly as we see them. Here you’ll find 5 celebrities that were bullied during their school years:

Christian Bale

Rafael Nunez CPIU1 1 150x150We all may know this British actor for his role of Batman on The Dark Knight trilogy. However, this talented man used to be brutally bullied in school for his love for acting and the performing arts. Bale tells he used to get beaten up for other schoolmates when they found out he was taking acting lessons after school. Also, he assures that it never stopped him for loving that he did, and because of that, he is now one of the most wanted actors to work with in Hollywood.

Demi Lovato

Rafael Nunez CPIU2 2 150x150Without a doubt, this young Disney star has been though a lot, the most interesting part of it is that she has always been very open with her personal life and her struggles with drugs and self-esteem. Lovato also states that during her early high school years (the time when she started working on the Barney show) the other school kids couldn’t understand why she was appearing on television alongside the purple dinosaur, so they started bullying her. The bullying carried on as she went older, even reaching her stardom status, when people pressured her to look a certain way. She is now much better, a Grammy-Award nominee and considered one of the best voices of her generation.

Lady Gaga

Rafael Nunez CPIU3 150x150This Grammy and Golden Globe super star tells how bad she had it when she was growing up. Her theatrical interest and her passion for music made her feel like a freak during her time in school. Being this the main reason to write music and all her commercial success, Gaga isn’t shy when talking about how depressing her high school years were. Luckily, this made her stronger and now, due to her fame and influential power, she was created campaigns to eradicate bullying across America and the world.

 Charlize Theron

Rafael Nunez CPIU4 150x150This South African beauty struggled with an abusive father from a very long part of her childhood.

However, it all changed one day, when her mother, sick and tired of the abuse, shot the man in self defense. Theron grew up to be one of Hollywood’s most admirable actresses, being an Academy Award winner and a respectable name in the industry.

Madonna

Rafael Nunez CPIU5. 150x150Considered the ultimate Queen of Pop, Madonna has topped the tabloids many times for her outlandish fashion style and her lyrics full of criticism to whatever she feels is wrong. Nevertheless, Madonna was raped when she was only 19 years old, even when it gave her strength to carry on with life, later in life she suffered mental and physical abuse from her ex-husband Sean Penn. It’s been a long way and time since then, and just like a Phoenix, she has stood up from the ashes.

As you can see, just like you, these big stars have overcome bullying and abuse. If you’re going through a tough phase, do not hesitate to contact a helpline or call somebody for help. You’re not alone, and abusers must pay for what they’ve done.

In recent days, a video about child abduction has gone viral, leaving hundreds of parents terrified with the idea of their children getting easily kidnapped.

The creator of the video, a YouTube personality called Joey Saladino, aka JoeySalads convinces three different women of letting him talk to their children while they’re playing on the playground. With a puppy on his arm, the plan of Saladino is to approach the kids and to pursue them to leave the park with him, as he “has more puppies to show them”.

Rafa Nunez CPIU1

The “social experiment” (as Saladino calls this set up scenario) ends up with the children leaving the park with him, and Saladino giving an explanation that over 700 kids get abducted every day, summing up a worrying amount of 255,500 kids abducted per yearin the USA only. A number that has not been confirmed and that do not have any sort of real support.

As a response to this video, that has already reached more than 45 million views on Facebook, many parenting bloggers from America and the rest of the world, have shown their discrepancy with the information given by the Youtuber.

It is a real fact that many children go missing every day, and that as parents, we need to be on the watch for them. However, it is also a proven fact that many of these abductions are planned and carried out by someone close to the child.

It is a case with many few chances that a kid, no matter the age, goes alone with a stranger just because he has a puppy and if it were the case, the child is not the one to blame, as us, like parents, need to jump into the action if we detect any kind of irregular situation between our kid and a stranger, as we are the ones responsible for their safety.

As it is well known, any form of abuse is hard to cope with for its victim. There are many centers and help lines that would take the victims to provide them with life tools and tips that could help them make their lives more bearable and easier in a way. However, there are many people who don’t open up or speak about the abuse they lived as a child until they’ve grown older. The reason? Many.

The human mind is a powerful and wise asset that can block any sort of negative experience from our lives, saving it into our deepest and wildest memories. Nevertheless, anything can trigger that memory at any moment of our lives, a tv show, a smell, a place, a situation, anything! And it is important to have in mind that there are support groups that help adults who have been victims of child abuse in the past.

Rafael Nunez CPIU

If the victim was abused by someone close to them, the effects could be greater, as trust and feelings are involved and are hard to get away from. Many of the survivors feel guilty, and usually tend to start drinking, and other illegal practices (criminal activity, drugs abuse, among others).

There are organizations that offer free and confidential support, as we know how much it means to the victims to keep their identities kept in private. There is no need to worry, these groups have been formed by specialist on the matter, and know how to handle these situations with professionalism and confidentiality.

If you know somebody, or you have been victim of child abuse in the past, have in mind that you’re not alone, and that there are ways to get out of this. On the web, there are forums and help groups that meet once or twice a week online and that, through conversations and life experiences, can help you relate and overpass this difficult time.

Types of Child Abuse

It is a fact that, as parents, we tend to protect our children up to point when they feel we are overprotecting them. But, as we are currently living on a fast-pace world, in which bullying and many other forms of abuse can cross their lives at any time, it is always prudent to be one step ahead and know some of the multiple ways of abuse there are out there. This, to always be prepared on how to action when a child of our own, or one we know, comes home as a victim of child abuse.

Physical Abuse

Many may think that physical abuse can come only from parents. However, there have been cases of physical abuse coming from teachers and other school mates to kids. For a teacher, this could mean the loss of their licence to teach for a very long period (if not indefinite). Justice has shown that if there are proves of a child being physically abuse by its teacher, the abuser can and will face a time in jail and the revocation of their teaching licence.

Neglection

A very common type of child abuse, but that doesn’t get called by its name often is neglection. When a child gets neglected, he or she is a victim of poor daily care, including medical attention, personal hygiene, and even feeding. If a child does not have the primary attention that he or she needs to live, then they’re being victims of neglection and the adults responsible for them could get taken to court and face a sentence in jail.

Emotional Abuse

Calling children names is just one way of this terrible case of child abuse. Children can be very hurtful with words, but the problem isn’t the names they call. The real problem is where do they learn all these names? Are they being victims of these names at home and they’re only imitating a situation they live often? It is important to considerate how the aggressors really are trying to imitate a pattern they are living at home. Emotional abuse is a chain that needs to be stopped from the very first link.

Rafael Nunez Child Abuse

When we learn how to deal with child abuse, no matter the severity of the matter, we’ll be helping, not only the victim, but the abuser as well, as at one point, the aggressor is also a victim of somebody else.

Due to the recent terrorist attacks that have been on the news in many different parts of the world, many children have started getting in touch with their local helplines, asking for assistance on how to deal with racial and religious bullying that they’ve been suffering at school in the recent times.

These types of bullying are not new to the scene. However, and because of all the hate that has been spreading on a variety of sceneries, it has increased considerably in the recent times. As a guide, in the United Kingdom alone, there have more than 2.500 sessions registered on children seeking for help because are being victims of bullying at school, because of their ethnicity and religious beliefs..

Rafael Nuñez Religion1

In many of the cases recorded, children have confessed they’ve hurt themselves to ease the pain caused by their schoolmates. It is important to point out the similitudes between the cases, highlighting:

  • Threats of violence
  • Being victims of exclusion and jokes when wearing a visible religious item
  • Being called names, such as terrorist, church-freak- among others

For some children, bullying got so intense and irritating that they stopped attending to classes, dropping school, and isolating themselves at home.

Rafael Nuñez Religion2

For parents to know, it is very importadsvnt to always teach our children to love, accept and embrace themselves and their culture, as that is exactly what makes them special and, most of the times, being “different” ends up being a great thing, as it is what defines our spot in a diverse society.

 

Cyberbullying: All You Should Know About It

Rafael-Nuñez-Cyberbullying

There are many types of bullying, but without a doubt cyberbullying is one of the most dangerous ones. The reason? Anonymity.

As cyberbullying talks place through electronic devices, it is easier for bullies to keep their real identity hidden from the bullied, which makes the scenery even worst for the victim, as the bully could be somebody close to them, using personal information against them.

Rafael Nuñez Cyberbullying1

Cyberbullying can happen at any time of the day, any day of the week, and this makes it even harder for the victim, as they feel vulnerable at any moment.

As well as harassing the victim, the bully can post photos online of its victims, which means there are no direct connections between the bully and the bullied, but the effect is the same, and even worst, as the image or message can get spread over the net and reach more people.

Cyberbullies know that using their phones or other electronic devices to cause damage is a tool that, in times, could be hard to track, as they can easily use different IP addresses and delete all the information that could incriminate them.

Rafael Nuñez Cyberbullying

As for the consequences, children who have been bullied have the tendency or are more susceptible start using drugs, start hurting themselves, have severe health problems, present lower self-esteem, and even show the will to skip school indefinitely.

To stop cyberbullying, many schools around the world have started new security policies, mainly oriented to parents, as any sort of uncommon behaviour should always be treated at home first. Through talks and workshops, parents learn to deal with their children, whether they are bullies or being bullied at.

Actions are an important matter to eradicate bullying and hate from our schools, it is a matter of time and effort, but it is not an impossible task.
