DEVELOP 3 HABITS IN CHILD ABUSE PREVENTION
- We KNOW when we understand the common practices of those who harm and the best practices to stop them.
- We SEE when we can recognize the warning signs or behaviors that signal abuse or risk for abuse.
- We RESPOND when we take action in response to behaviors we recognize as being inappropriate or questionable
As we put these habits into practice at our YMCAs, they remind us of our responsibility to safety and what we can do as individuals to protect children from abuse. We’re challenging you to be an upstander by speaking up when you see something wrong.
