National research How to talk to children about the risk of sexual abuse

The national representative survey was conducted in 2015 among parents and tutors of children aged between 5 and 11 years.

61.7% of respondents did not hold a conversation about the risk of sexual abuse with your child. 38.3% share that the conversation was not difficult and the most of them have held it when the child was 10 years old. Most of them put the stress on the prohibition of contact with strangers and on the explanation that there are people who can commit sexual abuse. The theme of good and bad touch is affected by only 7.7% of parents, 20% of them have tried to explain the limits - not everyone has the right to touch the child.
