Children face a variety of dangers every day, from cuts and scrapes to encounters with strangers- both actual and virtual- that could threaten their lives. To provide for the safest environment possible, in addition to improved legislation and more severe and swift punishment, we need to teach our children and our loved ones safety and self-empowerment skills.

Actual Dangers
What Parents Can Do

  • Teach children to be cautious and aware of their surroundings.
  • Teach them safety and survival skills. It does not frighten them it empowers them!
  • Give them a firm foundation in moral and ethical behavior (so they recognize inappropriate behavior.) It is irresponsible to teach children that they must always obey their elders. This can be confusing when an adult they admire is their abuser.
  • Talk to them about "good touch and bad touch." Let them know their bodies are special and off limits to others. Tell them that children are never to blame when someone abuses them. Abusers are extremely manipulative, they will say and do anything to satisfy their urges.
  • Keep the lines of communication open. If the child reports suspicious behaviors to you, stay calm, do not show disbelief or blame the child. Investigate the situation and report any suspicious behaviors.
  • Most cases of molestation are committed by someone the child knows.
  • Let the child know that you love them and want to keep them safe.
  • Direct your anger at the abuser - not the victim. Many times a child will tolerate a horrible situation because he or she is afraid of your reaction. Be careful not to threaten to beat or kill the abuser or the child may take on the guilt of having caused the situation. It is important to realize abusive situations may go on for some time (even years) before the child comes forward or it may be something that happened days ago. If the child is still thinking about the abuse it is still relevent and needs to be addressed. Refrain from saying, "That was a long time ago, get over it." That statement will imply that it didn't matter. To fully heal, all the buried issues must be resolved.
  • And most of all remember your child. A survivor of abuse needs to be given increased love and support. It will take time to recover from the abuse. It will affect the entire family.
  • Complete healing usually requires some counseling. Getting the secret out in the open is the first step. Remember, it takes a lot of courage for a child (or adult) to come forward. You must be strong and consistent in your support of the child. You must also guard against the abuse taking over your lives and the lives of other family members. Forgive the child for being too trusting and forgive yourself (the caregiver) for not preventing the situation. (Abusers are extremely manipulative.) Give the child back some of the childhood the abuse robbed her/him of by creating new memories of love and trust.


Virtual Dangers
Internet Safety

The Internet is an area that can pose a very real threat to children. The anonymity of the 'Net offers adults the chance to pose as children, then try to set up a face-to-face meeting. Young teens may also be lured into virtual relationships with older adults that may result in actual encounters.

What Parents Can Do

  • Never give out identifying information- home address, school name, or telephone number - in a public message such as chat or bulletin boards, and be sure you're dealing with someone that both you and your child know and trust before giving it out via E-mail. Use child protection software. Some filters prevent children form being able to give out details online. Teach your children the importance of not providing personal information online.
  • Think carefully before revealing any personal information such as age, marital status, or financial information. Consider using a pseudonym or unlisting your child's name if your service allows it.
  • Get to know the services your child uses. If you don't know how to log on, get your child to show you.
  • Find out what types of information it offers and whether there are ways for parents to block out objectionable material.
  • Never allow a child to arrange a face-to-face meeting with another computer user without parental permission.
  • If a meeting is arranged, make the first one in a public spot, and be sure to accompany your child.
  • Never respond to messages or bulletin board items that are suggestive, obscene, belligerent, threatening, or make you feel uncomfortable.
  • Encourage your children to tell you if they encounter such messages.
  • If you or your child receives a message that is harassing, of a sexual nature, or threatening, forward a copy of the message to your service provider and ask for their assistance. Explain to your children that the internet is being used by people who want to abuse children.
  • Should you become aware of the transmission, use, or viewing of child pornography while online, immediately report this to the correct authorities (see our report section) You should also notify your online service.
  • Remember that people online may not be who they seem. Because you can't see or even hear the person it would be easy for someone to misrepresent him- or herself.
  • Remember that everything you read online may not be true. Any offer that's "too good to be true" probably is. Be very careful about any offers that involve your coming to a meeting or having someone visit your house.
  • Set reasonable rules and guidelines for computer use by your children. Discuss these rules and post them near the computer as a reminder.
  • Remember to monitor their compliance with these rules, especially when it comes to the amount of time your children spend on the computer. A child or teenager's excessive use of online services or bulletin boards, especially late at night, may be a clue that there is a potential problem.
  • Remember that personal computers and online services should not be used electronic babysitters.
  • Be sure to make this a family activity. Keep the computer in a family room rather than the child's bedroom. Get to know their "online friends" just as you get to know all of their other friends.
  • Ensure that your children maintain a balance between the Net and time with friends.

What Children Can Do:
Ask your child to observe the following rules:

  • I will not give out personal information such as my address, telephone number, parents' work address/telepho'ne number, or the name and location of my school without my parents' permission.
  • I will tell my parents right away if I come across any information that makes me feel uncomfortable.
  • I will never agree to get together with someone I "meet" online without first checking with my parents. If my parents agree to the meeting, I will be sure that it is in a public place and bring my mother or father along.
  • I will never send a person my picture or anything else without first checking with my parents.
  • I will not respond to any messages that are mean or in any way make me feel uncomfortable. It is not my fault if I get a message like that. If I do I will tell my parents right away so that they can contact the online service.
  • I will talk with my parents so that we can set up rules for going online. We will decide upon the time of day that I can be online, the length of time I can be online, and appropriate areas for me to visit. I will not access other areas or break these rules without their permission.
