“I think it’s a two part answer; but both involve more parental involvement. When it comes to preventing abuse by adults, we need to be more aware of the people that get involved in our children’s lives. Without being a “helicopter parent” and smothering our children, or being paranoid, we need to be vigilant to warning signs and listen to things that our children say that should tip us off to problems. When it comes to other children, I would say that starts in the home. If children see abusive behavior or suffer it from other siblings, or their own parents, their much more likely to pass it on, and victimize other children. Love and respect began in the home”

“As a father of three I think that you should be there for your kids. Spend time with them and listen to them. If you know them, then you know what’s going on in their life.”

“Communicate with your children more often. Ask them questions about their day. Teach them to ignore those types of kids and adults.”

“I am a father of four. I always try to show love and tell my kids that I love them every day. I also tell my kids that they can tell me anything.”

“You can teach your kids to identify those types of kids, or adults, and to steer clear from them.”

“Honestly, I think the best thing we can do is prepare our children (Abigail, Aaron and Hannah 8, 6 and 4 respectively), to be in the world we live in and be proactive and engaged parents. I know we all want to protect our children from everything bad, painful, and awful. But, the truth is that we can’t. Preparation and a solid foundation of love and support is the key.”
