        Our Mission: A Secure Childhood for A Happy Adulthood 

Parents Corner

 

          Adults are not always with their children when dangerous situations occur; therefore, children must be taught some basic safety skills on how to protect themselves in a appropriate manner by avoiding potentially dangerous situations. Our goal is to empower the children by giving them knowledge and skills.

 

Teaching Tips

 

1. Introduce the topic as a safety issue

 

          Introduce the topic of Sexual abuse prevention to your child as a safety issue.
    For example, talk to them about some of the safety measures in your home and then lead the conversation to The Body Safety. Teach them that the Body safety is about keeping his/her body safe and what to do when someone touches you in a way that you don’t like or makes you feel uncomfortable.

 

2. Answer questions

 

          Answer all the questions based on your child’s level of understanding. State your response as clearly and simply as possible.

 

3. Have the children practice

 

          Having the children practice saying “NO” to uncomfortable touches or dangerous situations is a valuable tool. Whenever possible, have the children practice being assertive with adults in a various situations. If children have trouble speaking with adults whom they trust - they will certainly have difficulty saying “NO” to someone who is abusing them. Sexual abuse prevention involves more than just knowing what should be done - it depends upon the ability to act upon one’s knowledge. Teach them The Body Safety slogan “NO GO TELL!!”
