Child Sexual Abuse

Resources for reducing the risk of Child Sexual Abuse

Teatree Tells: A Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Kit

Teatree Tells: A Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Kit is designed to help teachers, early childhood educators and parents of children 4 to 6 years of age learn more about the issue of child sexual abuse and how to better protect children from victimization. Research has shown that child victims who participate in more comprehensive programs are more likely to report abuse than those who receive minimal one time information.

Be Smart, Strong & Safe

The Be Smart, Strong and Safe initiative is designed to help children (grade 5 and 6) understand the difference between healthy and unhealthy relationships and learn about the importance of respecting personal boundaries. Along with a website, teachers and parents can access our Smart, Strong, & Safe booklet. With fun and interesting activities, this booklet teaches children about how to identify inappropriate behavior and how to talk to a safe adult when something makes them feel uncomfortable.

Commit to Kids

Commit to Kids is a program to help child-serving organizations reduce the risk of child sexual abuse and create safer environments for the children in their care. It provides policies, strategies, and a step-by-step plan for reducing the risk of child sexual abuse, encouraging organizations to take an active, participatory role in protecting children in their care. Commit to Kids teaches organizations how to define appropriate boundaries between adults and children and create safe, respectful environments.
