We would like to offer some general guidelines, rules and information about child protection and talking to kids – tools for general communication.

The content contained here is aimed at parents, carers and educators and is a collection of best practice from a variety of child protection programs and academic sources.


Prepare Yourself: Educate Yourself
[vc_column_text]Learn about child safety through an excellent on-line program:

  • Stewards of Children: (on-line, evaluated)

Additional resources:


Getting Started: Talk About It
[vc_column_text]• Start communication at an early age.
• Explain that personal body safety is part of keeping safe and healthy.
• Keep the talks informal, talks as openly as you would about road safety.
• Don’t rely on one discussion – children need repetition to learn.
• Use simple language but correct terms for body parts.[/vc_column_text]
