How to prevent children from being sexually assaulted?

Beijing Red, yellow and blue events continue to ferment. Up to now, public opinion has reached its peak. I hope this can be solved properly. So for parents, how to educate children? It is necessary to educate children. I hope this tragedy will not happen again.

1. Tell children about their personal body rights

Let the child know that he / she has the right to choose who can touch him / her and who can't. Tell your child that only parents or other primary caregivers can wash their children's private areas while bathing them.

2. Help your child identify all kinds of touch

Discuss different touches with your child. For example, what is good touch, what is inappropriate or harmful touch, and whether it is good or bad touch.

Good touch is what children like, such as parents' hugs and kisses, hand in hand with friends. I don't know if it's good or bad touch, it's the touch that makes children feel confused or uncomfortable. Inappropriate or harmful touch is the touch that children want to stop, mainly including hitting, patting, kicking, or touching children's private parts.

3. Help children to identify adults around (home, school, neighbors) who can ask for help

Let the child know if the first person he or she tells doesn't believe what he or she says about inappropriate touch, then tell another person until someone believes him or her and helps him or her.

4. Listen to children's problems and ideas

Sometimes it also requires adults to practice patiently. Show your child that he or she can tell you anything, even something that feels very embarrassing.

5. Make safety rules with children

What to do when a child's privacy part is touched improperly or forced to be exposed to a sexual assault.

Tell your child to take three actions:

In a very positive or 'important' tone, say clearly 'don't touch me!'

Leave as soon as possible.

Tell an adult you trust as soon as possible what you've experienced.

Practice the above safety rules with your child, including using the 'important' tone. This tone should be powerful and very serious, making the other person feel what your child is saying, and decisive and very powerful.

6. Practice safety rules in different situations

Use 'what if' & hellip; & hellip; 'to practice security rules in different scenarios. Help your child practice identifying confusing or inappropriate touches or situations and come up with the best way to deal with them. For example, if one day someone touches your privacy part, what will you do? Tell your child that if someone touches his or her body's privacy part, you must tell your parents. You should not keep this secret from your parents.

7. We need to tell our children these

Don't go where you can't get help alone.

Don't stay alone in a secluded place.

Go out and ask for your parents' permission. And tell parents where to go, walking route, activity time. If possible, leave a contact number.

Try to avoid going out alone at night. If you need to go out, you should be accompanied by your parents.

Don't trust strangers easily. Don't accept money or gifts from outsiders. Don't eat food and drink from people you don't know.

Don't go out with people you don't know.

Close the doors and windows when you are at home. Before you open the door, you should ask who the person is. Don't let outsiders in easily, even if you are familiar with them.

When encountering the threat of sexual assault, leave quickly and run to a place with many people ……

We are teaching our children to be careful, not to be afraid. Parents should try their best to let their children know as early as possible and use these self-protection methods correctly and effectively, so that their children can stay away from sexual assault as soon as possible.
