This program originally aired on 4-18-18.

Imagine the scene at drop-off at an elementary school, all those children smiling laughing. Statistics tell us that one in every 10 of those children in the United States will be sexually abused before they turn 18. 

During this hour of Talk of Iowa, host Charity Nebbe talks with Rosenna Bakarai about her new book Too Much Love is Not Enough: A Memoir of Childhood Sexual Abuse." She's the founder of a support network for adult survivors called Talking Trees and has been speaking out about how to better support victims of incest for over a decade. 

Torri Hilton, who is a forensic interviewer at Mercy Medical Center in Sioux City, and Andy Kopsa, who is an investigative reporter, also joins the conversation.
