Bobby and Mandee’s Don’t Hide Abuse
Author(s): Robert Kahn
Educate, before it’s too late!
In this moral-driven tale, Bobby explains to Mandee that some secrets should not be kept—especially those that threaten a friend’s safety. Bobby explains to Mandee the concept of “abuse” and then tells a very sad story—of a boy who did not tell a trusted adult about his friend’s abuse and what happened as a result. Mandee replies with a story of her own, about her friend at school. Together, Bobby and Mandee decide to go to Dad and ask for his advice on how to help Mandee’s friend.
