QUICK TIP: Have Age-Appropriate, Open Conversations About Our Bodies, Sex, and Boundaries

People who sexually abuse children exploit their innocence about their bodies, personal boundaries, and sex. Talking about personal safety and sex creates a protective bond between parent and child, increases confidence for both, and instills knowledge that makes children and teens much less vulnerable.

Applications: Talk to your child when they are young and use proper names for body parts. Use real-life conversation starters. Tell children what parts of the body others should not touch. Use examples with situations and people in their lives.
