- Build family stability to enhance feelings of love, safety and acceptance of children.
- Equip yourself with information regarding CSA and how to prevent it.
- Provide children around you with constant age appropriate information about sex, their sexuality and sexual abuse
- Seize the moment and explain incidents, movies, statements etc that they come across which have sexual connotations
- Eliminate, as much as possible, situations where one adult has to be alone with a child unsupervised since most sexual abuses occur under these situations
- Stay alert to signs and symptoms that may reveal that a child is being exposed to sexual content above their age or is even being sexually abused.
- Put the blame where it belongs, with the abuser and not the victim. It is never the fault of a child who is sexually abused, even if the child is a teenager and especially when the abuser is an adult over 18 and so should know better.
- Never cover up sexual abuse, be vigilant. If you suspect a child is being abused speak up, report the offender and make sure the abuser can’t do the same to anyone else.
