Talk to Your Children

Attorney Kristi Schubert by Kristi S. Schubert

“Statistics show at least one in 10 children in the United States will be sexually abused before their 18th birthdays –
It’s a topic we cannot ignore.”

– Shani Zoldan-Verschleiser

The New York Times’ article, “Give Your Child the Tools to Recognize Sexual Abuse,” suggests that parents can reduce the chances that their child will be abused by:

1. Teaching children that their feelings matter and that they deserve respect.

2. Emphasize that children’s bodies belong to them.

3. Making sure kids understand the difference between secrets and surprises.

4. Sharing your own stories, and including as many feelings and sensations as you can.

5. Asking for permission to touch a child.

6. Empowering kids to say “no” and talk openly.

The trial lawyers at Lamothe Law Firm have substantial experience pursuing these claims and are passionate about finding justice and the best possible results for the survivors of abuse.
