Safe Steps for Children and for Youth — two new websites

A Cry For Justice

Australia’s Safe Steps organization has launched two new micro-sites for children and youth. These interactive sites are for children and teens who are may be experiencing domestic abuse. This is a much needed resource for our children and teens! I encourage you to explore the sites.

safesteps4children.org.au is an interactive, simple to navigate site designed to assist young children who have experienced family violence and are entering safe house/refuge/shelter accommodation. It features colourful imagery, simple information and stimulating play activities that introduce and explain the concept of family violence to children in an age-appropriate way, while also helping them feel comfortable in a safe house, shelter, or refuge setting.

All who are intent on doing evil will be cut off (Isaiah 29)

A Cry For Justice

Most of our readers are suffering under abusers and if they’ve left their abusers they’re still suffering from their abuser’s conduct — the abuser’s slander, the court battles, the long-term health effects of living under constant stress, the abuser’s allies in the church, the social isolation, financial problems, trying to manage kids who are manipulated by the abuser on visitation, trying to maintain relationships with kids who are living with the abuser, trying to rebuild relationships with their adult children who are blaming the victim rather than the abuser, the list goes on and on.

This post is written particularly to encourage those who are still under the pump of abusers. Those…
