"Great children are raised, not born. Great parents are taught, not born. Are you ready for greatness?"

Today's Guest(s)

Shelaine Maxfield is founder and president of The Younique Foundation, which she established in 2014. After she and her husband, Derek, became painfully aware of the long-term impact child sexual abuse has on survivors, they envisioned creating an organization that could offer resources and services to provide healing, education, and hope—free of charge. As president of The Younique Foundation, Shelaine guides the overall vision of our work, and focuses on the individual experience of those who are directly served by the foundation.

Chris Yadon joined The Younique Foundation as Executive Director in 2015. Chris is responsible for the executive leadership, effective stewardship of financial resources, planning, fundraising, and reporting at The Younique Foundation. Chris considers his family as his greatest accomplishment. He is the grateful father of six children: three boys and three girls. He and his wife, Christy, have been married for 22 years.

Child sexual abuse comes in many forms and from many different directions. It can be difficult to spot and identify, but it’s critical to know the signs to look for as well as what you can do to prevent it in your children, or really any child in your life. Dr. Meeker gives you part two of two in this incredible conversation with Shelaine Maxfield and Chris Yadon. Shelaine is the founder of the Younique Foundation, and Chris is the executive director and spokesperson for the foundation. Together they have a compelling conversation with Dr. Meg about how hope and healing are possible for victims of childhood sexual abuse. They also give great information about how you can teach your children how to avoid “tricky people” and things you as a parent can look for to spot abusive situations in your children. This is an interview that you just cannot miss! Do you have a question for Dr. Meg to answer in an upcoming social question episode? If so, email them to askmeg@megmeekermd.com and listen to future episodes to see if your question is featured!
