I'm writing an article on how to talk to your children about sexual abuse (focus ages 2-6). Interested in hearing tips from experts, and ideas from parents. Also anecdotes about how your prevention efforts worked (either in a real abuse situation or with the child just using skills).

I worked in sexual abuse for 15 years and even did some court testimony. I also video taped children's "confessions" during session. The age group you are targeting is really young so there is not alot that would be said or taught other than good touch/bad touch. There are alot of books out there on the subject including trying to "prevention proof" children early on. I would search the web for "therapeutic books for sexually abused children" and see what you get. Or under prevention curriculums which are big now. Hunter House has a line of therapeutic books for abused children. You might try their site hunterhouse.com. But I also know there are alot of others out there. Also, probably thru a national child abuse coaltion or something like that would have resources, probably on-line that you could read about "teaching" or "interviewing" children about abuse. Hope this helps. Let me know if you get stuck along the way.
