Supporting Your Family in Times of Need
Child abuse crosses ALL boundaries and is not limited by ethnicity, geography, or socio-economic standing. The good news is, that if we as responsible adults arm ourselves with the facts, we CAN end child abuse.
Personal empowerment helps provide adults with the capacity and momentum to take action against child abuse and neglect. With personal empowerment, we can start the conversation, make choices, take risks, and support each other – the foundation of The 5 Steps to Protecting Our Children.
Start the Conversation
One of the best protections is our relationship with children. Have open conversations with children about body safety and boundaries. When we talk to children in age appropriate ways about our bodies, sex and boundaries, children understand what healthy relationships look like. It also teaches them that they have the right to say “no.”
