You think you know how to keep your children safe from sexual predators.
What if you don't?
What if something you don't know that you don't know
is the key to prevention?
For many years adults have concentrated child sexual abuse prevention efforts on teaching children to say "no," run away, and tell somebody as the primary tool for prevention. Adults have been taught to recognize the signs that a child might have already been abuse, how to deal with disclosures and how to report. In addition, caring, responsible parents have established the family rules and practices they think will prevent child sexual abuse. Responsible adults think they are doing all that is possible to protect their children from child molesters. WHAT IF YOU AND THEY ARE WRONG!
There are things adults don't know about how child molesters operate and how to stop them from harming children. Knowing these things can help us eradiate child sexual abuse and create safe environments.
Keeping Them Safe is dedicated to this mission.
Keeping Them Safe trains adults to recognize potential predators in the environment and stop the grooming process before a child is harmed. Our programs are part of a Keeping Them Safe curriculum that is customized to meet your specific needs!
By Keeping Them Safe, adults take on primary prevention of child sexual abuse. We are no longer just working to stop it from happening again and providing the resources to help children recover from the trauma. Be Keeping Them Safe we eliminate the need for trauma intervention because they never experience the harm.
