​5 Steps to Protecting Our Children


Step 1:  
LEARN THE FACTS

1 in 10 children are sexually abused.   90% of them know their abuser.

Step 2:  
MINIMIZE OPPORTUNITY

Eliminate or reduce isolated, one-on-one situations to decrease risk for abuse.

 Step 3:  
 TALK ABOUT IT

Have open conversations with children about our bodies, sexual abuse, and boundaries.

Step 4:  
RECOGNIZE THE SIGNS

Know the signs of abuse to protect children from further harm. 

 Step 5: 
REACT RESPONSIBLY

Respond to risky behaviors and act on suspicions.


Darkness to Light is a nationwide initiative designed to teach parents, grandparents, and professionals how to protect children from child sexual abuse and what to do if a child reports abuse to them. 


Since September 2012, the Child Advocacy Center has trained over 8,400 adults in Rutherford and Cannon Counties. 


The Child Advcoacy Center has set a goal to train 10,500 Rutherford and Cannon County parents and grandparents– this represents 5% of the adult population.
