Public Sign Holds Hidden Message Only Children Can See

Did you hear about this Spanish organization for abused children that found a way to hide its message from adults while still reaching at-risk youth?

Do you think the hidden message will be effective?

    I guess I’m not entirely sure why it would be necessary to hide the message from adults, and and this way it is hidden from children over 10, too…but the video made me cry just thinking about it.

    I agree. Why bother to hide it? I only hope it is helpful.

    Wow, that gave me chills! I actually like it. It’s heartbreaking to think that there are kids being abused right now but scarier to know that there are parents, family members, babysitters, etc, who are doing the abusing. Kids would be with these individuals walking down the street and maybe, just maybe, if this form of information helps just one child (who may get beaten more for stopping too long to look at a phone number), then it’s all worth it. I pray for a world where children do not have to worry about going hungry or abused and can just enjoy being a kid :)

    Now that it’s all over the internet, even here in CA, I think it can’t really be called hidden anymore.
    Hopefully, it can still reach some kids that need it.
    I do think it was very clever and I really hoped it worked for even just one child before people felt the need to show off how smart they were in creating these posters.

    I think they felt it necessary because they want the child to put its trust that the poster can be a waiting safe haven? I do wish it was geared to children of all ages though, child abuse doesn’t stop at 10 for those who suffer from it.

    I can understand the need to hide it, but as said before, that purpose is defeated when you tell everyone what you’ve hidden.

    I think it’s brilliant. Hiding the helpline from an adult so the child can safely get help. It’s brilliant. If that sign helps one child get away from pain I think it’s well worth it.

    I was abused throughout the years I lived at home. Most did not realize. If ever a time something about child abuse was brought up when I was with my parent, it would make me very uncomfortable wondering what my parent must be thinking and would this trigger the abuse. I spent many years thinking it was normal and I was making it up or making a big deal out of nothing. So, I suppose what I’m trying to convey is that if the topic ever came up, it made me uncomfortable and fearful when I was with my parent.
