Preventing Child Sex Abuse
The responsibility to protect children from sexual abuse falls to all adults around them, including counselors, teachers, doctors, and parents. You can help protect your child through vigilance and active engagement, including:
- Talking openly in age-appropriate ways about sexual behavior
- Learning about the signs of grooming
- Confirming the institutions your child attends have thorough screening processes for employees
Most importantly, let your child or other children close to you know you can be a safe space for them. Knowing they can discuss uncomfortable behavior they have experienced with you can give them the confidence to come forward and discuss what happened to then.
