It's Child Abuse Prevention Month
Read below for 3 ways you can support safety for kids.
Go online with your child, model safe internet use, and talk to your child about safe and respectful online behavior.
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.”
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.
Kids FIRST is Lane County's Children's Advocacy Center. Our mission is to provide intervention & advocacy to children who are victims of, or witnesses to, crime.
