I Can Be the Solution by.... Getting Parents Involved!

Whether you are an advocate or educator, it is important to look for opportunities to engage parents, caregivers, and other adults in your community on the topic of child sexual abuse (CSA) prevention. While we want to teach children how to stay safe, this must be balanced by the message that adults are ultimately responsible for protecting children and creating a community that does not tolerate CSA.

Coordinating an event that is geared towards parents and caretakers will allow you to provide information and education on how adults can keep children safe and start the conversation about sexual abuse. These events will also serve as important reminders to the community that your agency provides a continuum of services to children and their nonoffending caregivers.

The resources listed below can be used to start a conversation, given to those attending your event, or can be used in your presentation.
