No Longer Silenced Movement
Bio: -A report of child abuse is made every ten seconds. -More than 5 children die every day as a result of child abuse. -About 30% of abused and neglected children will later abuse their own children, continuing the horrible cycle of abuse. -About 80% of 21 year olds that were abused as children met criteria for at least one psychological disorder. No Longer Silenced Movement works to raise awareness for and inspire teen survivors of child abuse. Presently, child abuse is often recognized in infants in small children while numerous teens an young adults suffer under the radar. Help us help these survivors and change the child abuse stereotype! No Longer Silenced Movement strives to maintain positivity while creating a nationwide recognition and support system for anyone who can benefit from its efforts. Anyone can organize an event, share a story, use our logo, etc, but we ask that you represent us in a respectful manner. No Longer Silenced Movement asks that you keep all comments posted on this page positive, constructive, and focused on improving the lives of abuse survivors. We understand that many emotions may arise when considering the subject of child abuse; however, we want you to keep in mind that we are focused on helping the survivors. Please understand that we are not asking you not to feel negative emotions but rather we are attempting to create a positive and enriching environment for abuse survivors.

Thank you so much, that’s very kind of you! I actually do not know much about blogging awards, but I’ll definitely look into it. Thank you so much!
So glad I stumbled on this great site. I have trying to spread the word on the streets in very dangerous areas, as a social worker with expelled, delinquent, and violent gang bangers. I worked with them, their families, whoever needs the direction.The fish stinks from the head down so we always study parents. The apple doesn’t fall from fro the tree. I’m in this 20 years , I have 5 kids of my own, and lived in a foster home at Father Flanagans group homes . I lived in that home for almost 5 years and took in over 50 teens over that time. Some stayed 6 months and others 2 years. Anyhow from my angle in the last 20 years the kids aren’t just being abused by parents, but due to the loving BILLION dollar drug industry relationship with 90% of pychiatrist$ for psychotropics we now are fighting a bigger battle. Nearly kid who commits a behavior that is not allowed or cant stay in their seat has Ad/Hd- which means ( these days) they are usually referred directly to the psychiatrist for a nice label for life. What people don’t realize is that once they get that label, the kids usually live out the prophecy. I spent most of my years un-labeling kids so they could allow the chains that put on them by labeling them be broken. Give them a chance like the rest.please check out my site on this….www.dontlabelmykid.com
This is very true, and unfortunately many parents put their kids in this position because when a kid isn’t “easy” they don’t want to take the time and work to help them. Thank you for reaching out to us. I’m glad you’re working so hard to help out kids in need!
Thank you for your kind words. I am passionate about the subject mainly because I saw what it did to the lives of the kids. I was in the front lines observing this, then managing programs, and finally when asked to start a new one, I said no thanks if we are just going to treat them as if they are in a hospital unit. They allowed me to take 88 expelled and on probation teens and bring them into my program with the ” dont label my kid ” mindset. Every teacher, janitor, nurse, and others were trained by me to avoid using labels, and focus on the behavior they wanted to see. When they caught then being good, they were to praise them for using the skill. Thats how it started, and along with my motivation system (like a business model) they did great. I also had them reassessed and it was found that only 20 or so even met criteria for any diagnoses, or meds.
The drug companies and paid off psychiatrists dont have a clue how the long term effects of being labeled with a mental health stigma works.
