STEP UP: Protect Kids from Child Sexual Abuse

step up widgetChild sexual abuse is a serious problem. It happens more often than most people think, can have long-lasting impacts, and is most often committed by people we know and trust.

There are steps we can all take as responsible adults to reduce the risk to children.  The first and most important step is to take responsibility. While we can and should teach children about personal safety and appropriate boundaries, we are responsible for protecting them from sexual predators. We are their first line of defense!
