Child Abuse in the Korean-American Culture

The purpose of this forum is to provide a safe haven where survivors and current victims of child abuse can share their testimonies, support one another, and discover tangible means of help.I was inspired to start this blog after taking “Child Abuse and the Law” at my law school and in response to the startling statistic of child abuse - only 3% are brought to light. Unfortunately, the unique culture of Korean-Americans makes child abuse even more difficult to detect. 

Through this blog, I hope to shed light on the current status of child abuse in the Korean-American culture, and to equip those who have suffered abuse with the means to receive help legally, physically, emotionally and/or spiritually. Your testimonies will provide hope and a voice for others, as well as create a strong support network that will lead to solutions. I am only a law student right now and while my qualifications are currently limited, I will be able to point you in the right direction. If you would like, you can also contact me personally at

Feel free to share this blog with anyone and everyone. This blog may be geared primarily to Korean-Americans, but even if you are not, please do not hesitate to share your story! Even in an area as dark as child abuse, there is always hope. There is hope because your story matters and will not fall on deaf ears. It will be heard by those who care and by those who will act. You are not alone!
