TAALK Tip #1
Tip:

When your child needs a medical test done such as an X-ray, CT or MRI, insist on one of the following: 1) being in the room, 2) leaving the door open and being just outside the door or 3) if there is a viewing window, stay where you can clearly see your child. Don’t allow the technican to tell you that you can’t stay due to exposure. There’s no reason why you can’t stand with the technican.
True Story:
I had an opportunity to talk with a mother who’s son was sexually abused while getting a routine medical test done at a local hospital. She was just on the other side of a closed door. The technician had been released from another hospital for alleged sexual abuse and the records were sealed, allowing him to get another job where he had regular private access to young children.
Advocacy:
Take the opportunity to tell the technician about the child sexual abuse statistics and that you’re committed to lowering the risk for your child and invite him/her to go to our website to learn more. This is a great way to raise his/her awareness as well.
Thanks for continuing your education on how to prevent child sexual abuse. Your increased awareness will make a difference in the lives of children around you.

Talk About Abuse to Liberate Kids

TAALK Tip #2
Tip:

When your child is invited to spend time or have a sleep over at a new friend’s house, find out the names of all the people who live in the house. Then take the time to look for each of them on the National Sex Offender’s Registery http://www.nsopr.gov/.
True Story:
I was speaking with a very diligent father about the epidemic and he shared that his daughter had been invited to a sleepover at a friend’s house. When he found out her parents were divorced and the sleepover was at her Dad’s house, he took the time to look on the National Sex Offender’s Registry and indeed found that her father had been convicted of child sexual abuse.

TIP: #3
If you find that someone in your child’s life appears on the National Sex Offender Registry, DO NOT let your child be alone with this person, not even for an instant. You should let them know that you’re aware of the conviction and that your family, including your children, are trained in child sexual abuse prevention and that you’re watching them.
FACT:
It doesn’t matter if they’re male or female, young or old. If they have abused once they may abuse again.
