Everyone should be a mandated reporter of any abuse of a minor, especially individuals who work closely with them. I’m in the military and know what it’s like to be a mandated reporter and it’s necessary. Victims don’t always have their own voice as part of the trauma and/or are afraid of their abuser. If adults have a hard time having their voice be heard, imagine how hard it is for the youth. As I said, EVERYONE should be mandated reports of abuse of a minor.
