Parent Resources

Much of the material on the Wings web site is directed toward adult victims, but we also recognise the importance of prevention of further abuse. One important aspect of prevention is education of parents and children.

WINGS has produced a general Brochure that you can print and give to someone who may not have access to this web site, and another brochure How To Talk To Children

Although the Wings web site is focused on prevention and treatment of Child Sexual Abuse, we also recognise that physical abuse, emotional abuse and neglect are also wrong and incredibly damaging to children. We support every effort to stop all child abuse.

There are some very useful educational resources available, but we have not done an extensive survey or comparison of them.

Some resources to help us educate children and parents include:

Stop It Now! USA and Stop It Now! UK : Prevention Tip Sheets and Resources for Parents and Caregivers

Parents Protect! : SMART rules for adults to share with children and  SMART rules for adults to share with each other

National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children
