Child Abuse Prevention Tips

Tip #1

Go online with your child, model safe internet use, and talk to your child about safe and respectful online behavior. 

Tip #2

Talk to your child about body safety and consent. When we talk to children in age-appropriate ways about our bodies and boundaries, we empower them. It teaches them that they have the right to say “no.”

Tip #3

If a child discloses abuse to you, believe them. One reason a child may not disclose abuse is because they fear they may not be believed or supported. It’s important to respond responsibly: listen, believe and get help. Don’t assume someone else will make a report.
