Excitement is in the air as families gear up for the start of school and afterschool activities. Unfortunately, this can also bring increased opportunities for child sexual abuse, whether at the hands of a teacher, coach, babysitter or other trusted caregiver.
Lauren’s Kids offers information on sexual abuse prevention through its Safer, Smarter Families resources. The no-cost, customizable family plan provides key steps to safety for parents, child-friendly videos and activities and other helpful tips – all age-appropriate.
No matter their age, it’s always a smart idea to talk with your children about personal safety and body boundaries.
