How Do We Respond When A Kid Says Something To A Teacher That No One Should Have To Experience?

FACTS!

…They’re a thing. We love them. We also know they’re hard to come by on the Internet. That’s why we have a team of fact-checkers double-checking everything we post, with standards that meet or exceed anyone else on the web. So go ahead and share your favorite thing from Upworthy with the full confidence that it's on the level — and that you’ll look really smart doing it. Not that you need any help with that, of course.

If we discover that something less-than-facty slipped through the cracks, we’ll always be up front with you. Check our corrections page for more information.

In just one minute, the video below tells the story of a student confiding in her teacher about abuse.

But the process of healing from abuse takes much longer than a minute. In this video, Teresa Huizar, the executive director of the National Children's Alliance, explains her inspiration for providing support to those responding to reports of child abuse and neglect across the nation. As she says in the video below, "no child should ever have to feel that they were tattooed to the shame that belonged to their abuser."

There were over 1.5 million clicks on this post, and this increased awareness has allowed the National Children's Alliance to grow so that more children across the country can heal through a child advocacy center.

Even more children and communities can benefit from these resources if we continue to show our support.

If you or someone you know has experienced abuse, you can find local resources here.
