You are a mandated reporter! Let kids know that they can talk to you about anything and everything, even if they just have questions. When kids speak up, assure them and let them know they did the right thing by talking to you. Believe them; false reports are rare. Let the child talk and remain calm. Determine their needs and call 1 (855) 323-3237 to make your report.

Learning the signs of sexual abuse is so important. Note that just because a child exhibits some of these things, it doesn't necessarily mean that they are being sexually abused. Either way, if you see these behaviors, it's a great time to start a dialogue and ask open ended questions. Sometimes there are NO signs of sexual abuse, so have conversations frequently.

Teaching children about body autonomy protects them from child sexual abuse. It lets them know that their body belongs to them, that they can speak up if they feel uncomfortable, and that they can come to you if someone doesn't respect their "no". It also teaches them to pay attention to their feelings which can keep them out of dangerous situations. If you're having trouble starting a conversation about body autonomy, check out some of these age-appropriate books!
