San Mateo police shared these tips on how to discuss potential child abuse to better protect your family:

  • Listen to your children. Pay attention if they tell you they do not want to be with someone or go somewhere.
  • Take time to talk with your children. Encourage open communications and learn how to be an active lister (  
  • Teach your children they have the right to say "NO" to any touch or actions by others that make them feel scared, uncomfortable, or confused and to get out of those situations as quickly as possible. If avoidance is not an option, teach your children to kick, scream, and resist. When in such a situation, teach them to loudly yell, "This person is not my father/mother/guardian," and immediately tell you or another trusted adult.  
  • Be sensitive to any changes in your children’s behavior or attitude. Encourage open communication.       
  • Some children may be coerced into activity they did not first understand to be inappropriate and/or do not know how to end. Children may be especially fearful of being punished, embarrassed, or experiencing the loss of the love and respect of their family members and friends.  
  • If your children do confide in you about problems they may be having, strive to remain calm, reassuring, and nonjudgmental. Listen compassionately to their concern, and work with them to get the help they need to resolve the problem.
