On December 1, 1997, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), in conjunction with Senator Judd Gregg (New Hampshire), announced a new CyberTipline to serve as a national resource for tips and leads regarding the sexual exploitation of children.  NCMEC encourages families to call this toll-free hotline (800-843-5678) to report incidents involving child sexual exploitation, including online enticement of children for sexual acts.

es and localities to end violence against women, they also offer you help and information if you need it with lists of state hotlines, coalitions, and advocacy groups.

Each year, an estimated 2 million to 4 million women in the U.S. are abused by their male partners -- thousands are killed.  The most common is physical abuse, though there can be emotional, sexual, and spiritual abuse as well.  In addition to numerous helpful resources on domestic violence and anger, Psych-Net Mental Health offers this article from the Mayo Clinic on domestic violence.
