Making Time For Your Passions

As moms, we put our needs last.  But making time for our passions can make us better moms.  We share how we have found time for our passions and what we have done–it just might inspire you to take up an instrument, pick up your tennis racket or lace on tap shoes!  This is a MOM Podcast show–for more great shows, check us out at The MOM Podcast or in iTunes!

Reporting Child Abuse – What happens next?

We speak with Laura Blanchard from the Children’s Justice Center in Utah about the process that children and families go through once a report of child sexual abuse is made.  Laura discusses how facilities like the Children’s Justice Center coordinate law enforcement, counseling and medical services to help make the process as easy as possible for the child and family.

If you suspect a child has been abused, contact your local law enforcement or call the National Child Abuse Hotline (Child Help USA 24 hours) 1-800-422-4453.
