Does a strip search endanger my child?

We carefully teach children to protect their private areas and not to let strangers touch them or view them except in a medical setting.

Research shows that children are humiliated by strip searches and often experience the searches as sexual abuse. Children do not recover quickly from sexual abuse, and sometimes they do not recover at all.
