Here are a few important tips to help parents protect their children from sexual assault:

Talk to your children about sexuality and sexual abuse in age appropriate terms:

  • Educate your children about sexuality
  • Teach them about their body parts
  • Discuss the importance of privacy
  • Openness about this topic will encourage children to be aware and ask questions

Be involved in your child’s life:

  • Know the adults who will be around your child and who your child may talk with
  • Be interested in your child’s activities and find out who will be chaperoning any school activities or field trips
  • Ask the school or groups involved if they have performed background checks on employees and volunteers
  • Talk about the sexuality present in the media (television, video games, etc.)
  • Let your child know that you are open to his or her questions
