April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month and is dedicated to raising awareness and preventing child abuse. Take this extra time to talk about personal safety with your children.
The Committee for Children developed a guide based on decades of research packed into practical, digestible advice and age-appropriate conversation starters to help you feel comfortable talking with your child about personal safety—one of the most powerful ways to protect them from sexual abuse.
Little moments can make a big difference. The How-to guide makes it easy to approach these vital safety conversations so you can empower your child to report and refuse sexual abuse:
- Connect and build trust in everyday moments
- Teach your child simple, age-appropriate body safety rules
- Create warmth and comfort when talking about a serious topic
