How Guiding Our Children to Prevent Them From Sexual Abuse

One of the biggest concerns of parents due to increasing cases of child sexual abuse is about how to protect their children who are victims of it, as a teacher I have observed that a large percentage of these crimes is given mostly by people close children as relatives or family acquaintances and fewer cases involving strangers through the kidnapping but in turn are the cases most at risk of ending the disappearance or death of the victim; therefore it is our responsibility as parents to educate our children very young in this topic to avoid painful situations of this nature.


1.- Teach About Protecting your Nakedness.-
From very young we teach our children not to appear naked before anyone but dad or mom or trusted person to whom we delegate care that in most cases about grandma or nana, this will put on alert when someone with bad intentions to approach them in a wrong time or ask them to disrobe simulating a game so that they are able to ask for help.

2.- Tell them That When they Enter a Bathroom Always Alone.-
It´s our duty as parents to accompany our children to the bathroom especially when it comes to public schools, but often gets used to the cousin who takes you a few years, the cousin or friend accompany and if both come together to urinate or given what they have to do, the latter being not advisable because the child will get used to it's normal that someone outside they approach a intimate moment is risky for them to do so.

3.- There are Parts of your Body that Nobody can Touch.-
It is important that after two years when bathe are themselves who jabonen the intimate parts of your body, single mom or doctor in the presence of mom or dad if necessary, can review those areas but when it comes to another who wants to do it then it is not correct; in the same way they should be warned if someone wants to kiss on the mouth or elsewhere in the body that is not.

4.- Teach Defend.-
Warn that when someone wants to behave with them completely differently from how we have taught according to the above points must defend not only say NO firmly but screaming and leave the place where he is asking for help, we practice with them so that fear does not paralyze but know how to act and be delivered from such a difficult moment.

5.- Risk Environments.-
Early detection of situations conversing with them about how they did in school, parents to be vigilant as to any circumstance that may have been exposed such as to tell us who were in the living room playing alone with a teacher of the opposite to theirs sex, ask for more information and if it is not able to find out what happened to the teacher or the person responsible for your child, always asking first if there was something confusing that was not very clear, to verify that they are giving situations that do not conform to their principles is important to make them known to the relevant authority and ensure that the respective changes are made.
We Must Also Take Into Account the Following:
✓ Not about instilling fear, when you talk about this issue should be done calmly and without fuss but firmly, is preparing not scare them.
✓ Avoid giving examples that frighten or give more information then can not assimilate his young age and scared.
Leverage situations such as bathing, changing clothes, etc., in order to reinforce the theme.
