This is an expanded Minute with Mike, our Licensed Independent Social Worker. We discuss how to talk to your kids about inappropriate touch and what warning signs parents should be on the lookout for. We also talk to a mom who is fighting to get Erin’s Law passed that would require schools to provide education to kids and teachers about child sex abuse.
