Child Abuse Prevention
Hosted by ABC7's Cheryl Jennings


Today's Beyond the Headlines episode hopes to raise awareness about child abuse and how to prevent it. Child abuse is sadly a year-round problem.

The effects of child abuse can last a lifetime, and it can happen to anyone. The perpetrators may be people you know. One of the important things to consider is: what will you do if you find out about the abuse? What should you do?

ABC7 News reporter Tiffany Wilson talked recently with a woman who is suing an East Bay school district, accusing them of not doing anything about the abuse she says she suffered from a coach she trusted.
