The Boy Scouts of America is hosting another closed-door meeting of experts and leaders to discuss ways to identify and fight child abuse.

The group's second National Youth Protection Symposium began Monday in Grapevine.

About 100 participants from various youth and faith groups heard from Scouting leaders and an expert who identified how abuse leaves an imprint on children that can last their whole lifetime.
