One of the hard earned and painful lessons which the family of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee learned in its struggle with the clergy sexual abuse crisis is how insidiously it tears at the fabric of the relationships within that family; and yet, how strong that fabric can be when a family finally stands up to the abuse and confronts it. This is a lesson other families can learn from us.
Guidelines that can assist parents, teachers and those who work with children help with children's reaction to the sexual abuse crisis.
