COVID-19 & Child Sexual Assault Prevention
posted by: Mile High Mamas
I know child assault prevention might be the last thing you want to think about at this time, and I get it. However, children are more vulnerable to sexual assault at this time because more children are spending unsupervised time with older children, children are spending more time online, childcare networks are disrupted, and adults, in general, are experiencing greater stress and overwhelm.
Here are two ways to educate yourself and your family, while you’re at home, on how to keep your children safe from child sexual assault.
- Register for the Parenting Safe Children Online Workshop, which is self-directed, so you can learn at your own pace, and from any device.
- Schedule a Body-Safety Consultation at any time that is convenient to you.
These are quick, easy, and affordable ways to empower your family to keep each other safe. You’ll also be supporting Parenting Safe Children’s mission of keeping every child safe from child sexual assault by keeping the organization viable during these challenging times.
Thank you for your support, and for doing everything you can to keep yourself and your family healthy and safe.
