Welcome to our podcast!

Lisa is a successful business professional, and she shares her story with us.  She traveled frequently for work, and employed a babysitter who, in essence, became part of the family.  The babysitter eventually got into a serious relationship, and her boyfriend was also welcomed in to Lisa's home.  But eventually, his behavior crossed a line.

Lisa makes several important points in this interview.  Abuse in any form can be extremely traumatic for a child, and it happens everywhere - regardless of a family's socioeconomic status.  And when a child survives abuse, the specially trained counselors at Child Advocacy Centers, like CARE House of Oakland County, can make a big difference.

In this candid conversation, Lisa reflects on her and her daughter's journey, what she's learned, and why she's such a vocal evangelist for CARE House.

The "It Shouldn't Hurt To Be a Child" Podcast is narrated by Karen Newman, and is made possible thanks to the generous support of Sheryl Hauk.
