Summary Sexual violence against our children is a real, everyday danger. Unfortunately, not many of us know the right way to think about and address such a sensitive topic. Protecting Your Child From Sexual Abuse empowers parents and educators by providing knowledge about a subject that is hard for many to discuss. Seeking both to dispel misconceptions, this guide presents accessible and comprehensive evidence to equip guardians with practical solutions designed to keep kids of all ages -- from child to tween to teen -- safe from sex crimes. Learn about the realities of child sex offenders, how online registries function, what threats and risks exist online, what to do if you suspect abuse, and how to develop honest communication with your children. With key points and discussion group questions, this is a necessary guide for any community group to develop sexual violence prevention strategies that will make a difference.
