How to protect our children.

Know the facts: Adults have a responsibility to protect children. Accept reality.

Minimize the risks: Be aware that sexual abuse occurs when a child is alone with an adult. Know who you leave with your child and what they do.

Talk about it: In general, children keep the abuse secret, but the barriers will fall if you talk openly about the matter.

Stay alert: Do not expect obvious signs that a child is being sexually abused.

Find out, know how to react: Know where to go, who to call and how to react. Child sexual abuse is a crime. Denounce it!

Act when you suspect: The future well-being of a child is at risk.

Get Involved: Volunteer to support organizations that fight against sexual abuse and child abuse.
