Link – ‘Teachable moments’: How to talk to kids about sexual abuse

This is a really interesting comparison:

“Jennifer Alvaro has never met anyone who’s had to escape a burning school building.

But as a parent, she’s grateful students are taught about fire safety and how to react in the event of a fire.

She does, however, know thousands of people who have either been sexually abused or have friends or family members who’ve been victims. “

We teach kids, and adults, about fire safety, gun safety, kitchen safety, etc. We have drills for tornadoes, active shooters, fires, and where I live, we even have hurricane and flooding action plans.

All of those are good things. Necessary things. Things that could save someone’s life in the event of a catastrophe. And all less likely to happen than a child being sexually assaulted.

That is something to think about, and act upon.
