With the holidays approaching, parents should have honest conversations about personal boundaries with their children. Here are the some important points to remember:

- If someone is invading your personal space or giving you unwanted affection or attention let a safe adult know.
- If there is ever a person that makes you feel anxious or uncomfortable, talk to a safe adult.
- If a secret makes you feel yucky or anxious inside, also let a safe adult know.

More than 30% of children who are victims of abuse never disclose to ANYONE. It is up to attentive adults to recognize these symptoms and make a report. If you suspect child abuse, call the Texas Abuse Hotline (1-800-252-5400) or visit txabusehotline.org. #ChildAbuse #DCAC #SaveJane ❤️

Holiday of Hope Toy Store Set-up

Many of our children suffer abuse at the hands of a family member, caregiver or breadwinner in the household. Among all the chaos, the family is often left to decide if they will put food on the table or if Santa will come. Please consider being a "Santa" to one of our kiddos. They deserve to experience the holidays as all children do.

We’d love your support this year, as we anticipate serving over 1,800 children. Visit: dcac.org/holiday to learn the many ways you can get involved! ❄️💙
