It's relatively simple for a sex predator to access a child, and a skilled predator may easily manipulate an adult's trust; however, with little effort, there is a way to recognise their "Modus Operandi" (method of operation), to back up any "gut feeling" you may have about a person.
The key to stopping the predator, at the beginning stages of their "grooming" process, is to teach your child how to tell the difference between good/bad touch, good/bad gifts, good/bad secrets and good/bad games. All the child needs to know, is how to tell you.
I have created "Bert the Butterfly" colouring pages, to be used as a tool, to help children to differentiate between good and bad intentions in others.
Without awareness, a child is powerless to recognise the skilled manipulation of a clever predator.
CSA (Child Sexual Abuse) has long-term effects on a person and our passion is to help survivors to move on from the negative outcomes of that abuse.
We do this by inspiring survivors to take back their lives and give them strategies to make positive changes.
