Concerns about people who could be sexual predators

If parents are concerned about a particular family member or a person in society or someone they know, don’t hang out with those people. That would be my first piece of advice. But if you don’t know for sure, the best thing that you can do is teach your kids that you have a feeling of concern about that individual. Teach them about the inner “Uh-uh” feeling. Let them know that you are concerned and have them be able to identify and translate back to you if they feel those same concerns. So for example, you could say, “Listen, I’m kind of concerned about cousin so and so, I think he gives a little bit too many hugs. How do you feel about that?” That’s a great sag way to a conversation that one – identifies the person, but also matches that up with the behavior that causes concern.
ALL PARENTS, Sexual Abuse
