Seven Steps to Protecting our Children

Help Protect your Kids and STOP PREDATORS of all kinds.

Step 1. Learn the facts. Understand the risks.
Realities – not trust – should influence your
decisions regarding children.
Step 2. Minimize opportunity.
If you eliminate or reduce one-adult/one-child
situations, you’ll dramatically lower the risk of
sexual abuse for children.
Step 3. Talk about it.
Children often keep abuse a secret, but barriers
can be broken down by talking openly about it.
Step 4. Stay alert.
Don’t expect obvious signs when a child is being
sexually abused.
Step 5. Make a plan.
Learn where to go, whom to call and how to react.
Step 6. Act on suspicions.
The future well-being of a child is at stake.
Step 7. Get involved.
Volunteer and financially support organizations
that fight the tragedy of child sexual abuse.
