Keep your children informed. Keep yourself informed! Talk in your congregation and emphasize that everyone is responsible to protect children.
The biggest value of this video is in educating and empowering children. It’s a great way to have a conversation with your child about private body parts of everyone. Thus, speak with your children about risks of abuse and tell them the clear correct words how to speak about he issue. Encourage them to talk with parents and teachers.
