In case you haven't heard, TLC has canceled 19 Kids and Counting due to child sexual abuse within the family... but they're still having the Duggars tell their story in the upcoming one-hour, commercial-free documentary about child sexual abuse. (Gotta get their money somehow right?)
The network decided to put together the special, titled Breaking the Silence, after it was reported in May that Josh Duggar had molested five underage girls-- including some of his sisters -- when he was a teenager.

The documentary will air on Sunday, August 30, and sets out to "promote education, raise awareness, and advance the conversation" on child sexual abuse.
The press release for the soecial reads, 
"[The documentary] is an effort to promote education, raise awareness, and advance the conversation on this important matter."
Question is, what are they educating about?... How to not get molested by your brother? 

Raise awareness? (Guess it's better than sweeping the whole thing under the rug, huh?)

TLC President Marjorie Kaplan went on to explain further,

"the goal is to take what has been a difficult and painful experience, and focus that attention on the really critical issue of child protection and child sexual abuse."
Sources say, Jill and Jessa Duggar will also speak out in the documentary. The sisters have admitted that they were both molested by their brother Josh over a decade ago.
"My dad explained to us, he said, 'You know there's a difference between forgiveness and trust. That's not the same thing,'" 
Jill recalled. 
"You know, you forgive someone and then you have boundaries. Forgiveness with boundaries. Trust comes later. Josh destroyed that trust at the beginning, and so he had to rebuild that. I think when he came back, that was… the point of rebuilding." 
This couldn't get any more real. But is it TOO real? 

"Breaking The Silence" airs Sunday, August 30. Will you be watching?
