1. Talk to your children about boundaries that they should have with others. Be specific as to what is okay and not okay about touching and being touched by others.
2. Let your children know they can talk all to you about anything and that they won’t be punished for doing so; you will always be in their corner.
3. Pay attention to where your children are, who they are spending time with, what they are saying and how they are acting.
No one else can or will notice changes that might prevent further harm to your child or others.
Consult a mental health professional for more information on this critical issue. An experienced family law lawyer can be a good referral source.
Our children are often at most risk where we truly believe they are most safe.
