P.A.X.A. supports and promotes an organization called Darkness to Light, which is a non-profit that empowers adults to prevent child sexual abuse. D2L is known for their Stewards of Children Program® which is an evidence-informed child sexual abuse prevention, recognition and intervention training program based on their 5 Steps to Protecting Our ChildrenTM guide.
The following two links will help parents talk to their children about sexual abuse and react responsibly if they receive troubling feedback.
P.A.X.A uses RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network), the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization, as a data-resource for the sexual abuse of children. The following link from the RAINN website provides guidance “If You Suspect A Child Is Being Harmed” by (1) helping adults recognize the signs of sexual abuse (2) talking to the child and (3) reporting sexual abuse to the authorities.
