Talking to Kids About Sexual Assault

SA can be an intimidating topic to share with youth but with the rising rates, it is critical that we do because knowledge is power.

  1. Have conversations about consent and practice consent within your own household to let youth learn from your behaviors. Listen to your children when they don't want a hug or kiss on the cheek. These may seem small but they teach important parts of consent and let kids understand the autonomy they have over their own body.

  2. Let your kids know that some parts of their body are not to be touched and seen by anyone.

  3. Talk to youth about words and phrases they can use to say no and how to address their body parts. Continue these conversations into their older years.

  4. Share that if anything happens, they can tell you and it is okay. Let your child know that you are always ready to talk to them.
