Courageous Kids are those who were physically, emotionally, and some sexually abused by one of their parents. Sometimes, despite witnesses or medical evidence of the abuse, family court did not believe it happened.
Instead, family court said the children who spoke up, or the protective parent was lying. Then family court punished the parent who was trying to protect the children, most often by completely cutting off all access to these children.
Thousands of children have been and are still taken from their protective parent and put with their abusers per court orders. Some children are forced to live with their abuser for years, or when they are finally able to leave, they are forced to leave younger siblings behind.
They are fearful of speaking out against their abuser because they are afraid that the family court will punish them and their protective parent if they do so.
If you are a young person, and what you have read about these young people is the same as your situation, that you are a Courageous Kid, and this network can help you.
