Research conducted by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that approximately 1 in 6 boys and 1 in 4 girls are sexually abused before the age of 18. So parents and concerned adults everywhere are wondering, "what can we do?"
This podcast will outline four conversations you could have with a child to help guard against sexual abuse:
- No means no, and nobody is allowed to touch you in a way that makes you feel uncomfortable or scared.

In addition to having these active conversations with the kids in your life, you can help guard against child sexual abuse by keeping alert to the signs of abuse, which are listed in this podcast episode.
