WE CAN LEARN A LOT FROM OUR CHILDREN!
FOR PARENTS AND CAREGIVERS:
Help children avoid sexual abuse. Teach them about normal physical & physiological development, use the correct names for body parts, teach them they have the right to say "NO" to unwanted, uncomfortable, or confusing touch. Their body. Their rights.
Teach self-control and boundaries. Teach about intercourse age-appropriately and honestly.
Take the Stewards of Children Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Training for adults.
Supplemental trainings are offered as well. Visit the C4 Prevention Initiative page for details.
We can all do something.
The futures of children are influenced even before conception through the physical and emotional health of biological parents. The years of early development are huge in determining a child's future health - physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Never again in a person's life does the brain develop and grow so rapidly. Each experience is literally wiring the brain.
The influence of caregivers and environmental factors make a profound impact on the lives of children. The more positively and productively this amazing opportunity to help shape the life of a child is utilized, the better. The more we can pour love into children during their early to mid childhood years, the more they will benefit long-term. Better for the child now. Better for all of us in the future.
Ask about resources to help parents, Christian leaders, teachers and caregivers. We can positively guide children to help them be who God created them to be.

Relationship is a significant prevention tool. Children who know someone cares about and believes in them are more likely to make healthy choices. Through helping children form strong foundations we can help them stand strong.
