protect your kids
Child sexual assault is a subject that most people don’t want to think about – but ignoring the problem won’t protect the children you love.
The fact is that every child is potentially at risk.
Even more astounding is that 85 per cent of offenders are known to the family – people you know and trust.
For the most part, child sexual assault is preventable.
By educating and empowering your children and their carers, you can minimise their risk of harm.
Should the unthinkable happen and your child is sexually assaulted, then responding to that crisis swiftly and appropriately will give them the best chance to grow into healthy, happy and well-adjusted adults.
Bravehearts have developed a number of resources that can help you educate yourself and your children about this important issue.
These tools are available for children as young as 3 years old and up to older teenagers facing a whole new set of threats in the ‘cyber’ world.
