Talk to your children about the fine line between obedience and protection
Published on 1/21/2019

Children learn from an early age that adults are figures of authority — teachers, police officers, bus drivers, babysitters. We need our children to listen to the people who are in charge of them, but this message must be communicated so that children know it’s okay to stick up for themselves too. Adult predators may try to use their authority to gain control over their victims. Children should know that when it comes to private parts, secrets, and things that seem dangerous or wrong, they shouldn’t worry about disobeying the adult in charge, and instead talk to a trusted adult or a parent.

Los niños aprenden desde la edad temprana que los adultos son figuras de autoridad: maestros, oficiales de policía, conductores de autobuses y niñeras. Necesitamos que nuestros niños escuchen a las personas que están a cargo de ellos, pero al mismo tiempo que sepan que está bien defenderse por sí mismos. Los depredadores adultos pueden tratar de usar su autoridad para obtener control sobre sus víctimas. Los niños deben saber que cuando se trata de las partes privadas, secretos y cosas que parecen peligrosas o incorrectas no tienen que obedecer al adulto que está a su cargo, sino que deben hablar con un adulto de confianza o un padre de familia.
