          Today’s Takeaway: Steps To Take If Your Child Was Abused


          March 1, 2019

          One in four women is the subject of some type of molestation or abuse by the time she is 25 – and it leaves scars that need to be addressed.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Have a story in the news?

          If your child tells you that he or she has been the victim of abuse, you need to take action.

          “The first thing you need to do is hear them. You need to believe them. You need to sit down with them and talk to them,” Dr. Phil says in Today’s Takeaway. “Then, you need to let them see you take action and protect them.”

          Hear more of Dr. Phil’s important advice in the video above.

          On Friday’s episode, he speaks with Savannah, who was raped and abused as a young child and was involved in prostitution and sex trafficking as a teen. Now a young adult, she struggles to move past the anger and says she partially blames her mother for what she’s been through. And, actress Jan Broberg, who was abducted twice as a teen, shares advice with mother and daughter. Check here to see where you can watch.
