When Sarah attended the Kids on the Block Child Abuse Prevention show in her 3rd-grade class, she realized the stories the puppets were telling were all too familiar. Sadly, Sarah had been sexually abused 3 years prior. Thanks to Kids on the Block’s empowering message of “No. Go. & Tell”, she finally found the strength to tell her mom everything that night. The next day, a guidance counselor conferenced with Sarah and her mother to get them the support they needed, and the abuse was reported to the appropriate authorities. After following up with Sarah weekly, her guidance counselor is thrilled to report that she is a happy, healthy 3rd-grader!
