Safety Tips From a Convicted Child Molester

Prevent child abuse by learning safety tips from a convicted child molester:

  • Give quality love, time and attention to your child so that he or she will not look for it elsewhere.
  • Know the people who are involved with your child who are in a position of trust, even a relative or close friend
  • Be aware of an adult or older child who spends a large amount of time with your child, or seems to be focused on your child.
  • Be aware if your child is avoiding a particular person that they used to be comfortable with.
  • Be aware of your child spending a lot of time with or talking about an adult or someone older who is not a parent or guardian.
  • If you suspect that your child has been abused, ask him or her in a caring, non-threatening way. Do not accuse.
  • Let your child know that he or she does not have to keep secrets. Many times shame will keep children silent.
  • Believe your child when he or she says there has been abused, no matter who it is.
  • If you believe abuse is going on with your child, act on that belief.
