Sexual Abuse Prevention Tips

  • Get to know adults who have contact with your child - neighbors, teachers, parents of friends, etc.
  • Be aware of what's going on around you.
  • Be aware of where your children are, what they are doing and who they spend time with.
  • Be aware of new people who seek out your child and want to spend time alone with him or her.
  • Be aware of special gifts your child may have received or secrets your child is keeping.
  • Teach your children that they have the right to say "NO" if they feel unsafe or uncomfortable with anyone, including known adults in their life.
  • Trust your instincts. If you have suspicions, take your child to a private place and talk openly using their words to make them feel more comfortable. Reassure the child that he or she is safe.
  • Have your child use the buddy system to and from school or play.
  • If it seems too goo to be true, IT IS. Perpetrators often "groom" the child and/or the family to gain their trust before the abusive behavior begins.
