Boys don't cry.
This is a phrase most boy children are raised by in most homes.
Eusebius McKaiser spoke to Child Protection and Development Specialist Luke Lamprecht, focusing on the experiences of male victims of Child Sexual Abuse (CSA) and the restoration process that comes with this experience. He also looked at how boys are raised compared to girls.
