These guidelines provide simple and practical actions you can take to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse.
The facts about child sexual abuse can be staggering, but they can help us learn the risks children face.
If you eliminate opportunities for children to be in isolated, one-on-one situations, you can dramatically reduce the risk of abuse.
Children often keep abuse a secret, but talking openly about our bodies, sex, and boundaries can encourage children to share.
Don’t expect obvious signs when a child is being abused. Signs are often there, but you have to know what to look for.
Be prepared to react responsibly if a child discloses to you, or if you suspect or see that boundaries have been violated.
