Fred Rogers once said, "Be kind. Be kind. Be kind."
That advice can be especially impactful on someone who may have been brought up in or is in the midst of an abuse situation in their home. Earlier this week, Jennifer Tolladay at DeWitt County DOVE told us about all the negative impacts kids being exposed to abuse can have but she points out it takes just one person to be in their corner to begin reversing those impacts.
While there is sometimes self-pride or stigmas around seeking help, Tolladay says support groups are a great way for someone to find support.
