Sexual Child Abuse Prevention Information
What is Child Sexual Abuse
Child Sexual Abuse is a form of Child Abuse that includes Sexual Activity with a minor. A child cannot consent to any form of sexual activity, period. When a perpetrator engages with a child this way, they are committing a crime that can have lasting effects on the victim for years. Child sexual abuse does not need to include physical contact between a perpetrator and a child.
The SAFE CHILD program Concept:
Parents, schools, and organizations can use all the technology at their disposal, but experience tells us that we are almost always surprised to discover perpetrators in our midst. In addition, a substantial percentage of child abuse happens at the hands of parents. We cannot expect these children to receive adequate prevention messages at home.
The Safe Child Program for Child Abuse Prevention accomplishes this by teaching skills which are applicable in everyday life. Children are not told what child abuse is or that might happen with someone they love and trust. Rather they are given opportunities to practice acting effectively on their own behalf in situations that are known to precede abuse.
