CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE PREVENTION
Advocate for educating adults and children about how to help prevent, recognize and react responsibly to child sexual abuse.
Statistically, in Canada & USA, 40% of abusers are family members. 95% of of abusers are known and trusted by the child and family, not "stranger danger". Coaches, teachers, babysitters. 1 in 3 girls and 1 in 6 boys have been/will be sexually abused. Prevention classes are needed throughout the entire education system.
Paedophiles always use fear tactics on children to keep them quite. Most survivors never tell, it is up to adults to open the lines of communication to assure them safety, support and services to recover. It is important to talk to children about sexual abuse, emphasizing unconditional support for your children, no matter what happens, they can tell you anything.
