We will not catch offenders abusing our kids unless we know what to look for. We have to catch them breaking the rules and overstepping boundaries. Understanding how offenders groom the community to gain access to our children is just as important as it is for us to educate our children.
Eliminating or reducing one on one situations will significantly lower the risk of the risk of children being abused. Even with education, parents can not expect kids alone to be able to protect themselves from the grooming of an offender.
Parents need to get comfortable talking about child sexual abuse and engage other adults in their community!
"The frequency and circumstances surrounding child sexual abuse is only recently being understood. Parents and organizations must be united, creative, and caring to prevent it. It means being determined to ask questions and require protection even when it feels uncomfortable. It means being a voice for children’s safety because it matters for a lifetime." Darkness to Light Stewards of Children
To start, you can sign up for a online prevention education webinar. A special one hour presentation for parents on how to best educate your child about child sexual abuse and what you as a parent need to know to best protect your child. From the comfort of your home, you can sit back, listen and ask questions.
What you will learn:
February 25, 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm (PST)

"Svava Brooks has developed an educational webinar for parents on child sexual abuse prevention. She shares her extensive knowledge in a forthright and articulate manner. After watching this web-based seminar, viewers will have the information necessary to protect children from predators. Ms. Brooks also provides an interactive session with responses to viewers’ questions. Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Education delivers important instructions for parents." Lynn C. Tolson, advocate and author of Beyond the Tears: A True Survivor’s Story
"This program convinced me to start talking to my daughter now, even though she is only 9 months old." Rob, father of two
"I learned how to begin talking to our kids from the start so that it is just the way we communicate and not shocking or shameful." April Ojendyk, mother of two
"Thank you for sharing your family "conversations" and "scripts" to help illustrate role play." Cassiopeia Guthrie, mother of two
"I learned that prevention is more important than learning to detect abuse." Dalin Cienfueges, father of two
"I had the good fortune of having a one-on-one online chat with Svava during one of her webinars. At the time I was having an inner discussion about a relative who was raising red flags with his behavior towards my daughter. Svava was able to validate my concerns and provided facts that helped me notice even more than I was previously aware of. Her webinar was delivered in very clear, simple and reassuring manner. Anyone concerned with the well being of oneself, one's children, family, friends, and community would greatly benefit from her wealth of knowledge. I look forward to many more of her webinars." VK - Berkeley, CA
What your children need to hear from you:
So many of the parents that I have educated over the years have all said, if I had known how to talk about it, I would have started sooner!
