Child Sexual Abuse Awareness Month

Create an understanding and open environment to help the child talk about the sexual abuse:
when children finally do talk about abuse,its very important to handle it carefully.
Rules in handling disclosure:
keep calm
believe the child
listen to the child
Answer the child's question honestly
Respect the child's privacy by not telling other people
Give positive messages:"I know you could not help",'Its not your fault',"I am with you" or "I am proud of you for telling".
Get professional help from counselors,doctors after taking the child into confidence.
Arrange a medical examination if necessary.
