Prevention of Abuse

Most abuse victims wonder if there was something they could have done to prevent the abuse. Unfortunately for the child, it is usually too late once the warning signals are recognized. However, a number of red flags can alert adults and children and help prevent abuse. If you believe that a child is being abused, do not hesitate to contact your local authorities or speak to a lawyer who handles sexual abuse cases.

Considerations in child abuse prevention:

  • Make sure that children are always supervised by more than one adult you trust.
  • Be attentive to abnormal attention paid to children by an adult.
  • Listen to children and inquire if they behave strangely regarding a certain adult.

In many social organizations, there tends to be a lack of transparency in the oversight of authority figures. Whether your child is in the care of a teacher, a camp counselor, a religious group leader, or a Boy Scouts leader, the child is under the control of an adult who may or may not have been sufficiently screened for abusive tendencies. Tim Kosnoff  is experienced in identifying the potential warning signs and in taking action.

The safety of children and the prevention of abuse is Tim’s primary objective.
