5 Safety Steps

These guidelines provide simple and practical actions you can take to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse.

Step 1: Learn the Facts

The facts about child sexual abuse can be staggering, but they can help us learn the risks children face.

Step 2: Minimize Opportunity

If you eliminate opportunities for children to be in isolated, one-on-one situations, you can dramatically reduce the risk of abuse.

Step 3: Talk About It

Children often keep abuse a secret, but talking openly about our bodies, sex, and boundaries can encourage children to share.

Step 4: Recognize the Signs

Don’t expect obvious signs when a child is being abused. Signs are often there, but you have to know what to look for.

Step 5: React Resonsibly

Be prepared to react responsibly if a child discloses to you, or if you suspect or see that boundaries have been violated.
